Of course it's always hard to start a new project in a clean space. You don't want to make a mess after spending many, many, many hours cleaning it. But this is no longer a problem. My daughter cut out a puppet from black long pile faux fur. Let me tell you, it makes more black dust bunnies than the dog ever did. I'll be vacuuming up black fuzzies for a long time. They even float out the front door. (I vacuumed a bunch off the outside front door mat.)
Good thing I took this picture on the very day I finished cleaning it.
