Ok so this will prob. become stitching and home improvement blog. Our room is this kind of mustard color or camel or something but it wasn't finished so we had this horrible partial red partial papered trim-looks horrible right? So we decided on a dark blue for the walls and a deep purple for our trim. And now here's the after:
Looks much better!

Here's a stitchy update. My progress on Mermaid. And progress on SK Rose.....
Sorry it's a little blurry.I will try to re-scan it later I don't have scanner hooked up just yet. I scanned these just before we moved our computer over here. Everything made it ok. I was a little worried about my files I forgot to back them up. I had sent a bunch of my charts to my other e-mail tho just in case. We only moved about 10 miles but you never know what can happen. We had a trailer partially loaded at the other house that we got too tired to finish up. It rained pretty good here and my husband went to get some of the stuff off the trailer-he said he checked all the boxes and made sure to grab Val's books but found out he left one of our game system boxes on there. We have original nintendo nintendo 64 dreamcast ps one and ps2. They are laid out in my garage(2car)even) hoping to dry out and still work ok.
Gotta go!
We got the house. We are in the house-1 week. We have fixed a toilet a sink and we had a hot water leak in the laundry room(that's right laundry gets it's own room now) woo hoo.We haven't completely fixed it yet husband got irritated with it I told him to let it go for now. We have lots of painting to do. Owners really had a thing for maroon and tan. Our room has partial candy apple red trim. It's def. my first room to paint. Took a before(will load it up later),getting ready to wash down the trim and get the primer on.
Little Valorie woke up at 6 this morning so no breaks for me today-I am hoping to get some stitching in. Think I'll do that real quick,as I have a needle loaded. I got out In To the Light by Teri Rosario,I started it in the bottom right corner so for now it's all 939. I'm making some progress on it. I found some more threads for my Mermaid SK.
For now my routine has been: get up early have my tea and stitch. Start a fire,clean and unpack stitch some more sweep. Play with Valorie eat with Valorie clean unpack. Val does like to help with the cleaning. So far this week she has "helped" with the floor in the dining room she swept the halls she cleaned windows, window frames and helped gather fire wood. She's a great helper.
I must get going-have to start the laundry which still seems to be an every day thing:(
