Dust off the sewing machine

I made myself a couple of satin tubes. When one is in the wash I have a back-up. I bought the satin online. Here are the instructions. Cut a length of satin the same width as your fabric i.e. approx. 1 meter. Then cut a second square the same. Place the first square down, satin side up with the cut ends at the top and bottom. Then place the second piece on top of the first, satin side down with the cut ends left and right. Do not just fold it over on itself, that will not work. Stitch the 2 sides together leaving the top and bottom open. Then hem or make a satin binding for the top and bottom. I used a French seam on the sides. The top and bottom are left open like a tube. Place it on the bottom sheet of your bed and when you get into bed sit on the bottom end of the slip near you. You will find this helps to slide over and up and down. It’s not perfect but it helps.

In May of 2018, I was diagnosed with Parkinson's. After researching, I believe the symptoms began to manifest themselves years prior to last year. The purpose for my blog is to share what I have learned (with an index) to save others time as they seek for answers about, symptoms, therapies [and alternative things to try], tools I use, Parkinsonisms, recipes, strategies, clinical studies, words of encouragement or just enjoy the photos or humor.
