Driven To Distraction

Have you ever heard the one that begins, "A funny thing happened on the way to..."? Well,I was going to post some fabrics...
I had a plan. I was to fill the orders, make some kits and then post the kits along with the new fabrics that came in last week while I was wrapping up the Pumpkins and Spice backorders.
I filled the orders and cut the kits but somehow, I was caught up in the Buggy Barn- Harvest Moon- Homespun "mesh", and next thing you know...WHAM! I'm making this! LOL!
OMG, how bad is that? I tell you, one minute I was right on track and next thing you know I fell off the wagon, LOL! It was like the kit pattern and the Homespuns were just meant to go together...and I just couldn't help myself.
And the worst part? This took me all day, LOL! I got the Bernina home and the light was out (OK, so how do you stay calm when the machine that was just tuned up, for the "Bargain Basement" price of $85 is taken out of the bag to reveal a damaged cord and a dead lightbulb? HELLO!) and a trip to Home Depot was required... along with an hour of tinkering (let's leave this for a later post) and next thing you know, the posting of the fabrics???? Never happened!
Now it's Monday and I am up at 4am trying to RedBull myself into consciousness so I can get the fabrics uploaded before Homeschool, LOL! Do you think I need professional help? Riddlin? Maybe I should post s sign in front of the cutting table, "FOCUS!" LOL! OK, now I have to go and get those cute homespuns uploaded... lest I be driven to distraction, yet again! LOL!

I wondered where the energy comes from! Can't the machine go back? Side tracked was good...because look at that block! LOL

Don't feel bad, my Bernina shop charges $105 for a basic tuneup. And I must add...Thank goodness for Red Bull!!
