some snippets

I will probably have some access to my computer over the next few days, but maybe not my sewing machine. We will be clearing out my room tomorrow to prepare it for some new flooring. I have purchased a floating floor in a rustic finish which I hope will stand up to some wear and tear as I wheel around my room from computer to sewing machine to cutting table. This is one of the last rooms in my house to have the flooring replaced and it's pretty bad. Here you can see a a piece of the new flooring and the old gray carpet underneath.

Today, I needed to start  tidying up to get ready to move furniture. Before I did that though, I free motion stitched some confetti leaves made from rotary cut snippets of fabric sandwiched between 2 layers of Saran Cling Wrap Plus. Later the Saran will be ironed between sheets of paper to melt it and I will be left with the leaves to use on my wall hanging.

Then I finished that last 7 squares for the zigzag quilt. They will all need to be trimmed. It will give me something to do while I cannot use the sewing machine. I am moving my cabinet temporarily into my bedroom, so I could use it if I'm desperate. How long can a person go without?

I have a wood floor in my studio and I love it. It is a lot of work to move everything out. I know because I've done it twice, once to have the floor put in and once to have it refinished 12 years later.

Sounds intriguing but...am I missing something here? Won't the saran wrap also melt to the fabric and the paper leaving a bit of a mess?
I have had my new wood flooring for over a year now, but we have to do a major job before the flooring will be ready to install, and that has to wait till spring. I can hardly wait..threads on carpet..arghh!
