Catching up

Here it is almost Memorial Day in the US and I have not posted anything since May 5. There has been a lot going on with health issues. 

I am one of those people who immediately read the side effects of prescription medicine. My DH thinks that when I do that I make myself susceptible to thinking I have one of the side effects.  I think it is in my best interest to know so if something feels off then it could be the medicine. 

My doctor changed my cholesterol medicine, one that my drug plan would not cover.  So she prescribed a different one and the drug plan covered it.  My old medication was also covered.  After being on the new medication for almost one month, I felt terrible.  I also felt overwhelming sadness and found myself crying over most anything. I even had an incident at Walmart where I was walking through the store and I just wanted to break down and cry.  Crazy!

I revisited the new cholesterol medication side effects and found that some people would possibly experience mood…

Back in the saddle!

First, I want to thank all of you who responded to my previous post, it helped.  It also made me feel that some of what I was feeling seems to be somewhat the norm or at least I am not the only one who has had these feelings.

I am back in the saddle again in regards to sewing.  I have been working on McCall's 7904

There are a number of fitting adjustments I had to make, mostly my normal ones-- Forward shoulder (FSA)-5/8"Full bust adjustment (FBA)-1 1/2 inchesShortened the length by 2"Swayback adjustment by 5/8"High upper round adjustment by 5/8"
There may be more as I pin fit collar and stay.  I will be making a short sleeve instead of long or 3/4  and strongly leaning toward View A instead of D or maybe a combination.  
The fabric has been in my stash for years and not sure where it is from, perhaps or Fabric Mart.  It is a border print, but the border is somewhat "blah".
