Last month while I was home, I was the best daughter a parent could ever hope for!  After all, not every daughter will help her dad clean out a 4 stall garage in the sweltering heat while she's on vacation.  :)  Mom and Dad are making room in the garage to convert it to a Rec Room.  Dad has taken up playing pool in his retirement years and he thinks he needs his own table to practice on.  This is my dad and he's pretty close to the definition of a hoarder and definitely fits the description of a pack rat! 
And this is his garage that is stuffed to the gills with junk important stuff that he is hoarding or stashing away!

Everyone needs an antique beauty salon chair and of course a playboy magazine or two from 1960 - 1980.  Just for the record, no dad didn't buy all those magazines.  He picked them up out of the trash!  Well at least that's his story and he's sticking to it.  I of course, have no doubt he's telling the honest truth as he's never lied to me in 52 years (unless you count Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny, and the tooth fairy) and I know my mother would never hear to it that he purchase them!  According to him, they are collectors items, especially if you have the Marilyn Monroe edition -  which he doesn't anymore.  He says he used to but someone stole it from him.  Any who..... how did I get sidetracked so easy?  Back to the garage cleaning....

This is just one bay of the garage ready for the garage sale.  Believe it or not, we did get through most everything and did clear out a ton of junk stuff.  It only took us 2 weeks but we did it!!!  He is ready for the carpenters to show and get started.
In between cleaning the garage, I did finish setting this quilt together.  These are the blocks from the Quilted Angels Online Quilt Club Challenge.  Each month we were given 2 blocks to make from our fabric.   At the end of the 6 months, we were to set it together, our choice of setting.  This is mine.  The winner will receive $100 gift certificate from Quilts With A Heart.  The winner hasn't been announced yet so keep your fingers crossed!  A name for this quilt hasn't come to me yet.  Do you have suggestions?  Leave me a comment and tell me what you think I should call it.
