While I was cleaning I would pick up any stray small pieces, and add them to a strip of adding machine tape. I had found a bag of adding machine tape at goodwill recently, and thought I would try using them for string piecing. It was fun. It's a good combination of strings and crumb piecing.
It made the diagonal string piecing ( not my favorite) go better.
I was surprised at how fast it was in comparison, and, also, that there were this many small bits to clean up. No wonder the mess was getting to me. Where did they come from and how did they end up on the floor?
