A lab experiment!
It was a bad idea when I downsized my sewing patterns. Studying my flattering fit suggestions, I can think of 3 patterns right off the top of my wooden head that I should have kept. The fabric store I visited in the city was not friendly/helpful last time so after last week's excursion I am thinking was my final visit. They turned the pattern cabinets to face the sales counter and they find the patterns for you when they aren't busy! :/ Anyway, I have been calling around and the patterns I want are gonna be easiest to get online. No wonder brick and mortar stores go out of business. One fabric store didn't even carry patterns! ???
To console myself I stopped at a brick and mortar quilt shop who encouraged and supported my rant. Therefore...
My excuse was I need a new purse (red) so this would be easier than explaining the leather purchase! Some story, huh? They also had a vest pattern but it was similar to the one I actually kept. I am so frugal. snort! The Sari yarn will be for bracelets which I really want to be part of my personal style.
I did also get a fit bit! The Rooster is checking it at the end of my day and I have joined, after some excruciating back and forth messaging, a group from my style club who are dressing for style while they literally downsize!
I have 3 months worth of super vitamins to get me perky and I shall alternate healthy citrus/vegetable juice/smoothies and glasses of water for this experimental marathon.

Customer Service is crucial to any business that wants to stay profitable. Love your lab coat for fun times. I have a FitBit and it really does help to motivate me to move more. In fact my FitBit One just broke its button yesterday so I am very sad. I have had it three years since my daughter bought it for me for Moher's Day. I love it!!! Move On Dear...
It sounds like quite the "Life Change". I also have a FitBit and love it's encouragement. I first struggled to get 10,000 steps but now I do 5-7 miles a day. I also cut out ALL sugar and wheat, meat and dairy so now I'm vegan (veggies, fruit and nuts) I also dropped 23 lbs without even trying. Best of success to you.
Hop to it, elle! ;-)
I love the Lab Coat....what a good idea for the studio, especially when there are paints and dyes involved!!! It seems that your TOTAL makeover is going well....keep up the good work!!
I have been reading/catching up through several of your latest posts.
My goodness, you have been busy ! Good luck with all the changes in your life. I have just begun the 'downsizing' - so daunting !
I love it!!! Move On Dear...
