The gray thing in back is a lamp I won as a door prize. I selected the lamp because I left mine at home, and since we are sewing in a room with all stained glass windows (McGuire, for those who know Lake Yale) I really needed the extra light. It's a clever little Ott light.
I won an Ikea light at the last retreat I went to. Maybe the planet is telling me I need to lighten up, or let my light shine, or???
