Ooooh dear !!!

I was preparing my fur strips for Jingle Sox orders this morning...
I use a really thick, luxurious fur,
when you cut it and the raw edge is exposed it makes a complete mess everywhere!
(you can see a tiny bit of the mess here, but believe me it's like it's snowed in here!)

I have to edge each piece individually so as to be able to work with it.

You know the kind of fur that if you breathe with your mouth open it flies in and sits on the back of your tongue all day no matter how many times you brush your teeth ....

I just zig-zag the edges and then it's lovely, and sooo much easier to work with :)!

I usually dust all my benches with a feather duster when I am finished edging it, then I wipe everything down with a slightly damp cloth to pick up any stray extra bits,

then I vacuum the carpet and get back to sewing...

Today I thought I would be clever and cut straight to the vacuum....


I am an idiot !!!!!!

I vacuumed the keyboard of the laptop!!!

Can you see it,

can you see what I did to the letter 'H' ???

I sucked it up !!!!

It won't go down, it is stuck like that, and I can't fix it!

It does type the letter but you have to press it really hard and I am sure it wont be long before it snaps off!!

I am soooo upset!

I hope it can be fixed!

(it is a fairly new laptop and to make it worse it is hubby's, I have been using it while mine is getting fixed!)

Okay, I am just gonna stare at my lovely new fairy frosts till I feel better.....
still staring......

:( .......
