OKAY! I'm NOT smokin'. This is the little lamp that I keep behind my sewing machines so that when I need more light I can just adjust it and wallah! More light.
IT was not smokin' EITHER.
But while I was sewing, I smelled smoke!!
I looked up from my machine and I SAW smoke. I was REAL quick to jump up and find out what was going on. Just as quickly I said a prayer that it was NOT my machine!!
Nope. The material I was sewing got bunched up behind the machine and piled up high enough to touch the bulb in the lamp. See that little hole that looks like a cigarette burn? THAT is what was smokin'. Luckily it was in a spot close to the bottom of the fabric that is in the hem of the curtains.
We are HUGE Black Hawk fans...ALWAYS have been...forever.
Black Hawks, Cubs, Bears and Bulls.
When my daughter moved to her new home, my grandson asked me to make a valance for his bedroom windows. He didn't want whole window curtains, just a topper. I surprised him with a Black Hawk valance. I have had the material for a LONG time. Way before they won the last cup. Good thing because I wanted more to make pillow cases or even a quilt but nope...couldn't find it anywhere.
He's a Cubs fan too. I bought a lot of material before they took the series but haven't decided what to do with it yet. I'm thinking I'll make another valance at least so he can switch with the seasons.
Today I am Thankful:
Yes, of course because I caught that little smokin' before it got tooooo big! But there are other things I think about in this thought process. Like the snow. We have about 10 inches right now. I HATE snow...absolutely. But today I am thankful for snow because it's really water that goes back into the ground and allows the water cycle to continue. So many of my blog friends suffered from a drought this year. I am thankful to have enough water. And yes, this is also part of my motto to look for the good in everything.
Merry Christmas Week!!
