Friday night sew in and other

Well last month it took me almost the whole month to post the pic  (Last post) of what I worked on at the Friday Night Sew In so this month I am doing better. I worked on the Gammill. I wanted to get the quilt in the mail today so I needed to finish it.  then I over slept and by the time the pic was taken and the package fixed and addressed the PO was closed. They just don't stay open as long as they used too. I thought noon but NOT so it will go out on MON.
This cute quilt belongs to Karen H. She wanted some custom work done on this one. Suns peeking out of the corners, I used some neon orange to do these. Then she wanted swirlies in the piano bars, stippling around the flip flops and waves in the log cabin borders. This was such a fun quilt to work on. It sure made me want to grab the bikini and head for the beach. Oh if I could only wear a bikini! I hope she likes it. After getting the flip flops done I worked on getting a purse ready for sewing today. You know finding the right pattern. I have the fabric in mind, but no clue as to how or what I wanted it to look like. And that was my Friday night Sew In. But earlier in the day I put the last touches on the Chemo headband. A couple of post ago I mentioned a friend that had just found out she was in Stage 4 cancer. After 3 weeks of  intense radiation on the 38 leisons  on her brain she is now in her 3rd week of Chemo.                
So I had to get her some chemo caps. Another friend of mine, makes these and she gave me the two on the left. The farthest left she gave me 3 of those in different color paths. I had hand knitted the beret and crocheted the floppy hat. So after work I went to her house and delivered the caps. It was really sad. Maria has always taken care of her mother and brother who are disabled and now the two of them are doing their best to take care of her. I wish I lived in the same town as her and had more time so I could help her more, but gave her my number and told her that if she needed something after 5pm and couldn't get anyone else call me. I drive up there to help.

So now where have I left off with my other quilting pics. Oh I know I still have one of Jeans to show.
So here it is. I believe this is a pansy pattern of some sort. I know I have seen this somewhere. But then I could be wrong. I have been wrong before and I am sure that I will be wrong again. Jean does a wonderful job on her quilts and I am honored to have worked on them.
I have worked on the internet row by row but for some reason I didn't download the pic so I will  get to that one later. Sorry Nancy for not showing it, right yet.

Ok now this is my problem. I love my junk room and I love having a room I can just throw anything into but yes it is getting (no it has gotten) out of hand. AND I need to have this room as a bedroom in 2 months. My parnets who live in SW Missouri are coming to visit. I have 2 extra bedrooms upstairs but at 86 and 81 I don't think they need to climbing up and down my steep narrow stair case. So that leaves this room to become their bedroom. When we bought this house, I told my hubby that one room a year remodeled was good enough for me. This year it is this room but I have to do it fast. It has that awful dropped ceiling panels and I think they will have to stay for now. I will be happy just to get my stash put away neatly. Most of these boxes hold fabric (all different types) or yarn. I love to make purses so I collect weird fabrics for them and the dresser hutch and boxes right infront of it are stashed full of this type of fabrics. The computer of the left was to be for my embroidery machine but I haven't the room to move the machine in there. (OK so now would be a good time to get that done). The ott light box holds an old knitting machine. I know the box in front of it holds denim. That short little dresser in the back has this cute little cutting board that swings out. I say it is little but it is really the width of the dresser and I had gotten this so I could sit beside it when I paper pieced so I would have the cutting board and mini iron right there. But once again I hadn't gotten to it. Once again maybe just maybe I (no I have to no maybe's about it) Well anyway Jun 10th this room must be a nice bedroom for my parents. Keep you posted on this one.
