Doing some updating

Spent the afternoon yesterday looking at wall papers for our kitchen and some for the 1/2 bath.
 I think I have settled on a couple. Here is what I think we will be putting up in our kitchen and eating area. I think the white with the small leaf sprigs will be on the upper 2/3rds and the plaid will be along the bottom  the plaid will also go under my cabinets and behind the stove and fridge the tiny white leaf will be on the soffit. My border will be as you see in the old just under the windows. I have 4 windows and they are back to back  in the corners. Wondering now what type of window treatment I want do, you have any ideas for me? Thanks for checking in on me today.

Steno Pad

some have asked on the note pad here is the web address for the pad. It is well written and easy to make. A bit tricky to insert into the cover but it goes in.  I like them have fun and enjoy.

a few things to blog

This is my easter  small quilt . I bought the pattern and fabric kit along with the hanger I had to get it made I love the colors of it. Makes me feel good .

Funky bracelets I helped her (Ally) to make  she did all the wrapping. so cute for her

Steno Pad and Small case for Grand daughter. She uses the small case for her I pod and ear phones. so cute! 
Well been busy on the sewing machine this past week. Have had some company, watched a few grand kids, did some shopping and I had to time to listen to Pat Sloan radio talk show. I won a charm pack should arrive sometime next week. But My new grand baby is not sleeping too well for mom and dad and they are very tired. Do you remember those nights? I sure do. How I longed for an all night sleep. I do have a lot of sympathy for them, daddy works 12 hour shifts 6-7 days a week. so you know he is tired. But mom needs a break too, so they  try to make it work. I plan on going out very soon. Her sister is coming for a week around the 15th of this month, I will  go out there after she leaves . I am in Ohio and they are in Washington state. Maybe I can help them and they both can sleep the night through. I got a couple items made and they were so fun to work on I couldn't stop until they were finished. Trust me I have  lot of UFOs lying around.Here are the photos of the things \I have made  the last few days.
