Getting Ready for Studio Guests

This quilt is too big for the design wall, so it's on the floor as I connect the various blocks and rows.  But I'm short of background fabric and must wait for the rest to come in.  Don't get me started on the math issues I had, which account for the middle row being wider than the others.   I am hoping it won't be THAT noticeable.   
The design wall holds several pieces that I want hung on the walls of the staircase coming up to the studio.   That's something John and I can't handle so handymen are coming over Tuesday to do this. 

Another Sew Powerful purse using some special metallic fabrics.  I think I'll do one or two more from these fabrics before putting them away for a few days.  So far I have made 4, have 2 more prepped, and want to have a dozen by 2/1/2016.
My Oliso iron has been acting goofy, like it gets too hot and needs to be unplugged for a while.  Which is very inconvenient for quilters.  And I love my Oliso.  But I fired up my old Rowenta, which created a huge problem:   I kept forgetting to turn it up (something you don't have to do with an Oliso - it automatically pops up).  To avoid burning down the house, I decided it was time for a new Oliso, which just happened to be on sale for a terrific price at Joann's.  My old Oliso will now be my travel iron. 
I love having playdates with my quilty friends, whether we are doing parallel play or working on the same projects.  I love that I must pick up and clean and make way for guests.  Now, what healthy lunch can I made.  Preferably something without turkey...
