I owe you some follow ups to close out several conversations we’ve had in past posts.
Big pharma – Without describing my medical issues in detail on the world wide web, I want to clarify that the two prescriptions I was talking about in a previous post were in liquid form not pills.
At a regular appointment, I made a point to talk to my doctor’s assistant about the issue with the prescriptions and showed her the documentation – 21 day supply for 30 day copay and 68 day supply for 90 day copay. She knew exactly what I was talking about and said it was the way the doctor had worded the prescription. If a three month supply or a bottle is called in, then that is what they fill. However, if they stipulate the measured amount of liquid needed, the pharmacy will fill that.
Two days later, I went to the pharmacy to pick up the new 90-day prescription, and this time I was given two bottles which will actually cover 136 days for the same copay. Imagine that. Bottom line – read the fine print and ask questions.
Granddaughter’s quilt – I put together a quilt top for my granddaughter this past winter. When I took it to the longarm quilter in April, I found out the backing of a grand piano was too thick and would not fit in the machine. I ended up having two quilts with one between a full and a queen size and the other a good sized lap quilt.
I made quilt labels using fabric sheets that can be run through an ink jet printer. Because the larger quilt had a moon/sky/star theme, I wanted a good photo of the moon. So, I asked one of the best photographers I know, fellow blogger Deborah at Circadian Reflections, if I could borrow one of her exceptional shots that showed two sand cranes flying in front of the moon. She graciously agreed to let me use it. A fabric sheet doesn’t do justice to the quality of her photo, but I look at it and see her beautiful original photo and her generosity.
Quilt with a vintage linen – At a SC quilt show, I saw a wall quilt and wanted to copy it – maroon background with a lovely antique linen tablecloth. But, where was I going to find a small tea table sized tablecloth?
It’s a good thing, one of my favorite bloggers is Kerry at Love Those Hands at Home. She was kind enough to check her stock and send me a beautiful piece she had in her inventory.
If you’re ever looking for vintage linens, please check out Kerry’s Etsy Store because she has an amazing assortment of lovely linens and other items. Besides her great linens she also has the best toffee recipe around on her blog.
That weekend turned into several and even required an email to our resident carpenter blogger, Dan at No Facilities, for advice. If you ever decide to try one, email me so I can point out all the speed bumps to completion so you can avoid them. I’m happy to say it is finished, I like it, and its on the wall.
I thought when I did this post I could say I was done with projects for a while and was headed back out to the garden. But, I visited a friend last week who wanted to show me a sewing project she had designed. The only problem is she doesn’t sew. So, on a rainy afternoon that will be my next indoor project.
If you noticed a theme of fellow bloggers coming to my rescue, you are right, and that is why I love the blogging community. It is a wonderful group of creative and supportive people, every one of you – bloggers, readers, visitors, and those special folks who take time out of their busy day to comment.
Okay, we’re all caught up now so I’ll head back outside and see what I can find to work on with my shovel. Hope you are having a wonderful mid-week in July. Hot and humid here today. 😎
