New floor tile!!!!

Yay.....New floor tile is down in the sewing room....So excited to get back to sewing without having to worry so much about quilt tops getting dirty from the old flooring...What you say? Why didn't I just mop the old floor? OK this is the thing....When we started out using this for a sewing room, there was carpet down...not great, but ok...except that the ceiling had leaked, and was still leaking for quite a while until Hubby could figure out just where on the roof the water was coming from--not an easy task...Then we had to wait quite a while for it to rain several times to make sure we had the leak fixed...In the mean time, the carpet and padding had molded---could not get the smell we ripped the carpet out, leaving the old cracked vinyl with lots of glue on it that we couldn't get up. The glue had powdered the padding into matter how we scrubbed, there was still dust coming off onto anything that touched the floor..Sooo good to have it Clean and Pretty!
