On Friday I finally got in to see a Neurologist for my migraines. I am trying a treatment that was just approved by the FDA in the fall…so that means that if you qualify, more than 15 severe headaches per month, you can get Botox injections in nerve spots all over your head, neck and back.
Since I have headaches nearly everyday, I am hoping that this treatment will help. I was told that it could take up to a week before you will start to feel the advantages of the treatment. Keeping my fingers crossed!
I recently started making all of my own products, such as: soap, lotion, lip balm, deodorant, laundry soap, shampoo and conditioner. So far so good, I love knowing that there are not any chemicals in my items. I love everything that I have made so far so I will continue to experiment with this new hobby.
I also decided to try to make a quilt. I have never made one before but so far it is going well. Of course this will be a Rock -N-Roll quilt made from t-shirts. I’ve got all my blocks cut and interface material put on the backs to give the blocks more stability, since t-shirts are rather flimsy.
I wanted to make my blocks 15 1/2 inches square. To by a guide that size costs around $40, I went to Michael’s and bought a piece of foam board, had them cut it to size and it only cost $1.50 and I have enough left over to make another guide that will be 12 1/2 inches for future quilts! The guide that size cost $22, I love to save money!
I will post pictures as I complete steps on the quilt, above is the layout we decided on. Have a ROCKIN’ day, Mama
