Newest Project

What's that you ask? Tara has a new project?? I know, no way right. This time its not a stitchy one that I'll be showing you. Its the middle/my sons/the guest bathroom. A while back I painted it orange. Not sure why. Orange isn't my favorite color. I just wanted something different and was sick of nasty mobile home wall paper and didn't want white. I loved it. It really brightened up the room. Hubby on the other hand hated it and told me he was embarrassed to have people use that bathroom. So he decided since it was too hot to do anything outside (104ยบ) we would redo the bathroom. 
Here's the before.......

 Pulling up the floor we found this disaster :( Yes that is rot and mold. NOT good. The floor by the toilet was so weak that when my skinny husband stepped on it there was obvious sinkage. I sprayed it down with a lot of bleach and Dustin headed to town to get more wood. 
 Here is the after. The walls are a blueish gray called going gray, lol. We redid the floor, bought a new cabinet for the wall, a sink and cabinet, a faucet, toilet paper holder and a hand towel holder. After I took the pics I had Dustin get a new register and it looks so sharp and we have went around the edges of the tiles with bath and tub caulking. It looks nice. Will take a new pic later...Total cost of project minus the new plywood for the flooring and the new register was $330. We bought the cheapest of everything. Love it and ready to do my bathroom. I can tell a major difference in how bright the orange made the bathroom and will miss that but I love the look of the black floor and the cabinets.

Finished Cleaning the House by L*K

Cory had a T & A on Monday. I wanted to take something small and easy to work on so I picked Cleaning the House by L*K. I love the saying on this and plan on stitching it a few more times. It took less than a week to stitch.

Finishes and Kids

I've been working on a trying to get some oldies finished and have finally finished this SAL from Novalee. It was from last year so its not too old but still feels good to have one less thing lying around unfinished. I have washed and ironed it and it's all ready to be framed. 
 I have also finished June of the Blueladie SAL. The colors are sooo pretty on this one. Love it. 
 I got this great exchange a few days ago from Kaghos. I love everything! The beads, ribbon and buttons are so pretty. The fob is awesome and my first and the ornament is so me. Thank you so much!

This is what I sent her. The biscornu was a freebie from cyberstitchers.
 We had both kiddos graduating this year. Quincy graduated from High School. I am so proud of her. She is an awesome kid. Here is a picture of me (with my newly cut hair), her and Cory.

Have to include a picture of her dad. He's so silly. 
 Cory graduated from Kindergarten. The kids had a little play called E-I-E-I Oops. Corys part was a cat. It was so cute. He had a tail and every time he would sit down he would grab the tail and act like he was shooting people. Yep, that's my boy. 
 Here he is with his diploma. 

 Thanks for taking a peek :)
