Fluffer Notter

My little sewing project today was to try and make some washable covers for my Swiffer handles.  The inspiration came from here Reusable Swiffer Duster Cloth Tutorial and I don't usually follow directions word for word but I did with these because they looked so good.  This is what hers looks like....

....and this is what mine look like....hmm

I haven't dusted with them, I will do that in the morning...I know they will work just fine (I need to clip ravelly strings off of them)...I just want to know how she got hers so FLUFFY!!!!

UPDATE:  They work great!!

Last week, a young woman I knew and worked with was killed by her boyfriend, not only did he take her life and that of 3 of her children (one unborn), he also took his own.  He did leave one survivor, Destiny, who is fighting for her life in the hospital (update, she is doing better, Thank you God!)  Tracy was one of the sweetest people I have ever met and she adored her children.  I have seen, been near, and helped people I know with abuse, but none have ever ended in death.  I am at such a loss as to what I think and feel, this will take some time sorting out.  Please pray for Destiny,  she has a destiny, possibly divine.  The Story

Last week  I also lost my dearly beloved Keera.  My grandbabies and Patrick and Stephanie came to spend a week with us.  Keera was really sick  the day before they came and and I realized this was her time.  I had been hoping it wouldn't come. Ever.  The most awesome vet I have ever had came to my house and helped her painlessly go to her new home (over the Rainbow Bridge).  I was with family in my house all week and yesterday was the first day I was alone and feeling the full effect of my Keera being gone.
