Things weren't as bad as you may have thought: I was a bit under the weather, suffering from artistic insecurities and utter boredom. The flu is mostly gone, but my pollen allergy has successfully kept me sneezing. I feel pretty ridiculous right now: my allergy drugs have weird side effects. Slight sleepiness isn't that slight in my opinion as I've fallen asleep while washing my hands. It's like I'm narcoleptic, I fall asleep in the middle of making things, sitting and standing. I haven't fallen asleep while walking yet. I'm trying to see a doctor tomorrow to get my medication changed. I guess you'll have to bear with me and my weirdness for a while.
Wednesday was vappuaatto, Walpurgis Night, and we went to see fireworks and walked through the amusement park. I didn't wear my student cap and I skipped the use of alcoholic beverages too, it was a very un-Finnish vappu-behavior. May Day was spent making and eating falafel, and after that, sleeping. And sleeping.
Today I finally finished something. A linen brooch, that was supposed to be something completely different. Fever and gocco don't work together that well, so I was left with patches of natural linen printed with white only. I added some French knots and finished the edge with running stitch, but this one is just a prototype, I have no idea what I should do with the rest of the patches.
