Urgent on the Craft Nook!

Well as you can see, I'm still a ways from completing my room. This week, I had planned on spending at least a couple hours each day working in it, but hadn't been feeling that good. I'm trying to finish peeling wall paper backing off the walls so I can re-primer and paint.
This past week, my nieces sister-in-law delivered her baby girl prematurely, and I want to get her quilt done. These are two of the fabrics going into it. I'm so anxious to start, it may end up being a kitchen table project!
Welcome to the world Hailey!! And congratulations to Brian and Debrah. She's beautiful!

Congratulations on the new baby in your family or extended family I guess I should say. Nothing sweeter than a new baby!!!
Sorry you are feeling under the weather...hope you're feeling much better very soon.

Looks to me you're making good prgress in your room. I've done that wallpaper removal and the three rooms I did about 28 years ago it was a JOB!!! Mine wasn't the type that came off easily. I did two bathrooms and that came off in a flash but the dining room, family room and foyer was a *&%ch! (Pardon my language)

I will NEVER put wall paper up because of how hard it is to get down. Your doing good, its going to look great!

Hi Laurie,
Hope you will feel better soon. Lucky you to have a new baby in the midst.. I can hardly wait to see the quilt you are making for her..
Best of luck with your wallpaper... Haven't had to deal with that for years ...
Thanks for stopping by my blog. It's always nice to have you..
To-day I am going to prepare the backing for the ABC quilt and maybe even get to start the quilting. I think I will machine quilt rather than hand quilt.. Seems the practical thing to do.
so......toodles for now
ps.....IT'S SNOWING AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!!
