Oh now, not only are you unwell from 3 different things but now you have suffered brain damage from watching so many cartoons!!! Seriously though, sure hope you get to feeling better real soon, if you sucked in so much smoke from the fire can I ask two things?

1. Why wasnt the shop evacuated and closed so you were safe and not in the smoke?
2. How much smoke damage has been done to the shop, it must be pretty stinky now in there?

Take care of you, sorry you had to lose a day at work and arent feeling well but your paper piecing is looking awesome, really pretty colours, this quilt is going to be a stunner  hug08

We were evacuated while the calendar's worth of firemen were putting out the fire. coolsmiley In fact, the few of us who left by the back door were herded to the front so that the men could be sure we were all safe and accounted for. (Maybe one of them had a quilter in his life so he knew how tempting it would be to go back in if not supervised???)

We didn't get billowing smoke through the shop, fortunately, but the smell was overwhelming. tigger  After all the shouting was over and calendar boys went home, we had to open all the doors and place fans to air it out. We placed a bucket of cleaning solution (Mr. Clean, maybe?) in front of each fan to blow through and neutralize the smell.  

That took about an hour and a half. The thing is, the shop is actually TWO shop spaces, so there are two doors to the street and two to the back lot. We couldn't just set the fans and go hang out together (or one of us -me- go home) because each side needed to be physically attended, so we were inside with the smoke (and Mr. Clean) for all that time. I cut kits for Wonky Winter, Susie worked on something else.

Fortunately, what we did worked. When I went in on Friday (only a half day because I was still not 100%) I went on a sniff-mission to find smoke smell. I have a super nose (doot-dudu-DOOO!)  and I could only detect the barest, faintest trace in just a couple of places in the whole shop.  And if I had to work to find it, nobody else would ever know the difference.

As for getting back to my project, I don't need to be at work until 2:30 today. Depending on my energy level, I might be able to sew up a couple of sashings. That would be nice.

Oh I can see how you got stuck with the smoke and thats an acrid almost edible smell, yuk, I feel for you, can you and bet that cleaning stuff didnt help you either, that must have done a job on your sinus. At least you got the calendar crewe, didnt anyone give a fake swoon in front of one of them??  lol! 

Thats a cute kit you were cutting, totally different to anything Ive seen before, very unique but I think Id have to change those log cabin blocks top and bottom.

Are you feeling any better?
