I left my quilt room to finish browning some meat one night and left it and my sewing machine on thinking I'd be back down to take care of it quickly. I got distracted, we finished dinner and I rushed the mob out the door for basketball practice.
Then I smelled something fishy...
Yes...you guessed it! My iron fell to the floor and burned a hole in my rug clear down to the pad!
Wish I could say the same about the carpet!
