Retrospective (12/13)

Patch #323 Paisley redux


Original Post

Cloth was my consolation today. After learning that a single month of a new prescription will cost $250, it was a joy to find this for $1 ...


A lightweight, 100% cotton it may serve as the backing for Remember 2016.

Then there was this ...


No fabric tag, but for $9 I knew I'd kick myself in the future if I didn't get it. Even the b-side is comely ...


We'll see how it weathers a gentle wash cycle as it looks like it has already bled (to good effect in my eye) ...

I was stunned ... already trying to figure out where else to buy, whether I can reduce dosage, if there's an alternative, etc. Our healthcare costs have spiraled out of sight in the past month.

I'm so sorry to hear of your prescription woes. We too have struggled with the costs of healthcare for several years. Medicare was a godsend...I hope it continues to exist in our scary future. The fabrics are a pleasant distraction. I'm looking forward to their next appearances in your work.

The only hope with Medicare is that our reps and senators won't want to risk being voted out.

Sorry about the perscription cost; that has happened to a lot of my friends with the new affordable care act that doesn't seem to be so affordable. I'm lucky, don't take any medications, knock on wood.

I do like the fabric find!

I got my asthma meds from the country to the north of us. Only way we could afford it.

Is the second fabric a silk? Looks like some my niece brought back from India. Good find.

Thanks Liz ... taking medicine is my least favorite thing to do, but the alternative is even less desirable. We are fortunate that we can get by, but I just felt the need to have a pity party.

Thanks for the suggestion ... and yes, I think/hope it's silk.
