    yes, since doc was going to refer me to a specialist this week.

    I suspect that when my allergy medicine went "over the counter", and I am not able to find the right dose, I spent a hunk of money on a couple boxes, bc dh takes it too, and thought, ok...I'll cut them in thirds to save money!
    What a blunderheaded idea that was!...but, hey! I had no idea that would happen to this mouse!
    the jams I manage to get meece-self into! :roll:

    Well Mousie obviously that wasn't the correct thing to do with your meds.

    Perhaps the thought of a specialist visit helped to do the trick.

    Finally, here is my block #1. Its not perfect..the placement of the orange scrolls isn't right. I'm not sure how that happened, but guess what.....I'm NOT redoing it! I also had to copy Lesley and add the extra bling. It served 2 purposes...added some more bling AND covered up some innies! The innies were pretty good, but in case of raveling...this covered it! Good idea Lesley!

    *Editted~ Darn, I should press these blocks, they would look so much better :wink:

    Looks good to me Patti - and as for the scrolls, not enough of a problem to redo - especially as it will be hanging down the side of the bed anyway! LOL.

    Patti, on one of you blocks, I recall you mentioning fraying. I just got a dvd of Ellie Sinkiewiecz (not sure of the spelling of that one). She said if you're concerned about an innie point fraying, you should drag your needle through a glue stick before you turn the pointy part. She said it helps a lot to keep things from fraying. After dragging your needle through the glue, you turn your inner point and make sure to drag the glue off the needle onto your fabric. Sounds like a slick trick.
