Stomped!

We've been wearing ourselves out working at the new house since Friday. (But I did sneak in a little stitching - picture later this week!)
On Friday, DH and Billy got the last of the sheetrock up.
On Saturday, Billy began taping and bedding like mad. The man is speedy! At work, DH says everyone calls him "a gerbil on uppers."
Because it was SOOOOO hot (over 100 degrees) this weekend, the mud dried at warp speed and Billy was able to get it finished by Sunday afternoon! Normally, it would take four to five days for this!
So we were able to begin texturing! We are using the "stomp" pattern. Billy demonstrated on the ceiling for us and then taught us to do it on the walls.
We all took turns "stomping" the walls and got all finished by 4:30 p.m. on Sunday! Today, we prime and paint one top coat!

Y'all are amazing! It looks as though ya might meet the deadline of moving out of the rent house. I thought of you this weekend, wondering how it was going. I'm supposing you won't be at the meet next Saturday due to moving. I certainly don't envy that! However, I have to say that Mark and I envy y'all moving to the country as this is what we want to do in a few years (if not sooner!!).
