Thread Name: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Subject: RE: Declutter & Fitness - Clearing Out the House
Two more projects completed and more room made available in my sewing room! I completed a queen sized topper and my first real bag of any substance. It's lined with pockets and a durable handle. I like the name of the pattern almost as much as I like the actual bag! It's called the Chubby Charmer...LOL. I love it! Both projects were completed at a weekend retreat that I went to with my Mom. We had a great time with our sewing friends and a night out that was hysterical and will be remembered for a long time.

Then yesterday my mom had surgery. She is doing well but it's been draining. Tonight is the first night I am spending at home, in my own bed, since Friday. There's no place like home!

While decluttering is slow going around here, I was able to go to the retreat without overpacking which was WONDERFUL. So much less to pack, unpack, keep track of, repack for home and unpack once again when I got home. Others made comments about how little I brought as everyone brings SO MUCH (I think we all overestimate just how much we can get done in 72 hours) but it all worked out just fine for me.
