Okay, ladies, I can figure out a sewing room and a box room and a bedroom.

But please enlighten me about what you Texans call a murder room.

it's a room with a gawdawful carpet...have no clue why that carpet was even made, much less selected AND installed. Truly looks like some disastrous event happened, and was only half-heartedly cleaned up.

It really isn't as bad in person-LOL-

This carpet is in only one room of the house, and when I first showed the photos to people at the AZ retreat, someone (I don't remember who - Mishii?) quipped that it looked like someone had been murdered in that room, as it looks like there are old bloodstains.  Patty is now the only one who has seen it in person, and although it's definitely "different," she agreed that it's not as bad in person as it looks in the photo.  It's actually in better condition (okay, a little better, but not much) than the carpet in the other bedroom.  Currently, you can't even see much of the carpet in either room, as those two bedrooms hold most of my stash, UFO's, boxes, and other sewing/quilting stuff.  The carpet in the 3rd bedroom (mine) is newer and has better padding under it, and is just a neutral color.  As weird as it is, I may never replace the "murder" carpet, because like the ugly fish fabric, people get a kick out of it.

It’s my very favorite thing and I will be devastated if you ever replace it.

re murder carpet - if she has it ripped out, she can send it to you....

Shipping a roll of carpet would cost a fortune.

Better to send her funds to buy her new ugly carpet

How great to have your sewing room set up.  Patty acts like a trouble maker to hide the fact that she would help anyone.  We are all lucky to have her for a friend.(Shhhh! Don't tell her I said that.  She won't believe it anyway.)
