Lace in the dust

In an earlier post I mentioned we are remodeling our kitchen.  As you can imagine, it is a dusty process. There is dust everywhere! It gets into everything!

A couple of days ago I was looking for something in a drawer in the living room and found something unexpected.  I wasn't even sure what it was at first glance because I couldn't think of anything I had that looked like it.

This is a glasses case.  There was a hanky with a tatted edging laying across it in the drawer.  The dust infiltrated the drawer and left a lovely pattern in dust on the case.  It's amazing how disappointed I am that I messed up the pattern when I picked up the case.

Dusty tatted lace - dust left an impression on a glass case.  The tatted edging of a hanky echoed in the dust.

The good news is that the kitchen is almost done.  We can actually start cleaning up some of the dust, as most of that work is about over.  The contractor is putting the finishing touches on.  I may have my kitchen done by the weekend!  The background in the picture is my new kitchen counter.  Isn't it pretty?

I've been working on the pattern for the Medallion Cross bookmark.  I want to review it a bit before I post it but I'm hoping to have it ready in a couple of days.
