HAED Faery Tales and New BED!!!!

I was able to work on my Faery Tales from Haed. This design is 49 pages and I am on page 3.  It was a pretty rough week for stitching.  I had parent teacher conferences on Tuesday.  I have fifty plus students in my room and only three parents showed up!  That is about 6%...how sad is that????

Progress as of 4-5-12

Mark and my new bed finally came in and it is heavenly!!!  A new bed means more money spent.  At school, we have compared it to the book "If you give a Mouse a Cookie".  

New bed with the new comforter!!!!
When we bought the bed, Mark was sweet and ordered me a king size wool padding that goes under the sheets.....It is so soft you just sink into it!


When you buy a new bed that is a different size, you have to buy new sheets:


You also have to buy new King Size Pillow Cases....


We also had to buy a new area rug because we forgot that Brigen ate two holes in the carpet! 


After all that shopping, we finally called an electrician because when we tried to turn on the light switch or the ceiling fan, the switch would pop and crackle!!!  This had been going on for a while and I finally got tired of it!!  It seems that our house was not up to code!!!!!!  To make things worse...our House inspector missed it seven years ago.  The box had been wired wrong so after some rewiring, new smoke defenders, and surge protectors throughout the whole house we can now use our fan and light in the bedroom!!!!  We do not even want to talk about that bill!!!  The electrician said if we had a house fire, insurance wouldn't have covered it since the house wasn't up to code.  So it is a good thing I called!!!!!

At least you know which parents care more about their kids than themselves! Great stitching update! Can't imagine another 46 pages tho. Love your carpet!!

Your Faery Tales is coming along great!!!! Enjoying watching this being stitched up. Love the new bed. DH & I want to get a King size bed, but right now don't have the finances for one. What kind did you get?
That is terrible that your home inspector missed the fact that your home was not up to code. At least now you know it is & can feel safer about it.

Faery Tales is looking great. Congrats on the new bed. I am so glad you got the electrical problem fixed. Sometimes I think living back in the old days with no electricity would be better. lol

Faery Tales is looking great. That is either in my stash or on my wish list. (terrible memory).
Sad how parents just aren't involved in their kids schooling. They will be the first to complain if their kid fails.
New beds are awesome. Enjoy.

New beds are HEAVENLY! I went from a Twin to a Queen about a year and a half ago and haven't looked back - it's been AWESOME. I'm glad you called the electrician! That's so scary!

That's really scary Vickie. Anything that cracks or pops in my house is immediately replaced. I make a quick trip to Home Depot, buy the replacement part, and go home and fix it. (Unless it's night time, then I wait for the next day cause you need light to see by.)

And I forgot to say grats on your progress. Fairy Tales looks good. (And yes, the bed looks really comfy. I would love to get a soft padding like that, but I'm sure I can't afford it.
