  1. Oh isn't tucker so adorable with his sheepy! I LOVE the curtains, kitchen and diningroom, those are great! Love your whole house:)

  2. Shame on you for forgetting Whatcha Working on Wednesday! I checked all day yesterday off and on for it! This morning too!!!!!!!!! LOL I love your new curtains. Tucker is so cute with his sheep! My little angel, Bandit had a quilt that my youngest sister made for him.....even had his name embroidered on it. He had to take it with him when we went anywhere. They sure get attached to their blankies, ect. I love all your embroidery. I wish I lived close enough so I could attend your craft show.

  3. Love your curtains they do look just wonderful for fall! The pillow tucks are neat too!
    Buster has a stuffed dog that he shakes then barks at too.

  4. Nice things that you are making. I really hope that you do not come back with one thing. I am loving your curtains, & also the things that you have hung over your kitchen window!

  5. Love your curtains and your little
    pillow tucks....Wish I could come

    Portland on the 7th, but I will be
    going South...Good Luck with your
    show.... I know you will do good!

  6. Love the new kitchen curtains, Gina. We have black & tan Sturbridge curtains in the kitchen & family room. I was so bummed today ~ my CS didn't come & neither did my MG. Have a great week, sista.

  7. Gina ..Love the new Curtains ..Doesn't it always feel so good to change things up ..!!

    It seems the feeling of the same old thing after a while comes upon us and just changing up something as simple as the curtains puts a whole new feeling into the room and makes you feel like you got a whole new room !

    Hey Good luck on your upcoming show ..Hope it comes out well for you..

    Blessings ..Sara of Sweet Magnolias Farm

  8. Gina,
    Great new curtains!! I change mine in my kitchen, but never have changed any of the other ones. Now you have given me an idea.
    Can't wait to see what kind of fabric you use on the backs of your pillow tucks.
    Hope your show is a great one!!
