Making dust!

It has been one of those days.  A big blip in my sister's life has necessitated a dozen phone calls.  We have let our relationships collect some dust and needed to dust them off and promise to do better. :^)


I also dusted off the Finish-a-long list and I gathered up the projects, cut batting for them and made a fabric avalanche as I found some suitable backing for a couple.  I'm somewhat ready to proceed.  First I had to clean out all the dust from sewing the wedding quilt top together.  Nina actually sneezed.  Bless you!


Interestingly my first project is leftovers from my niece's wedding quilt and it is to be a baby quilt. Her baby was born the day after Jolina and her name is Janina.  I think it is just meant to be for her!  I'll be hand delivering it when the snow is gone.


The small floor sander wasn't really doing the job so it was replaced by a bigger, heavier, noisier, dustier model.  Now I REALLY have dust.  I think I'll be spring cleaning whether spring comes or not!

I know how you feel, we had a couple of rooms we had to tear apart and put back together again (more to come this summer too :o ) Just think of how lovely your floor/room is going to look when finished. It helps keep the insanity at bay :D

Looks like you will be dusting now right on through Spring with that bad boy sanding your floors. Very special connections on the newest quilt. Happy Finishing my friend...

I hope things for your sister are being sorted, and good for you in getting back to the finishes. Those floors are going to be so nice.

Oh boy, it looks like you'll have lots of dust to deal with! I love the yellows on the baby quilt. It will be sweet!

I remember when we sanded our floors. They said that the bag will catch the dust...not.
