CS pictures and what I'm determined to finish!!

I was so excited to get the new CS at Country Comes To Town yesterday and get a couple of pictures posted in between helping customers that I forgot to take pictures of Jen's article until I got home. Her home is soooo perfectly prim! It's a great issue, so grab a cup of coffee or tea and sit back and read all about Jen and her home. This issue makes me want to do some redecorating at home.
I'm blessed because that's what I do for a living. I work at a store here in Fayetteville, NC called Carolina Window Fashions/ Country Comes To Town. We sell custom made blinds, shutters and window treatments but best of all we have over 6000 sq ft of antiques, primitives and reproductions. We have things arriving daily so our displays are always changing. A simple crock collection or pie safe is reason enough to completely redo a display. And on occasion certain pieces that I form an attachment to follow me home.
Now here is a x-stitch that I am determined to finish. I'm embarrassed to say that I purchased the pattern at Hobby Lobby about 5 years ago, started it, packed it up for storage due to a move and completely forgot it till recently. Just let me say that my eyes aren't what they were 5 years ago, but finish it I will.
Whew, sorry to be long winded. I hope everyone is having a fun and safe weekend.
Till next time,
God bless,
Kimberly: )


  1. Hi Kimberly!

    Thanks so much for the sneak peek at Jen's gorgeous home!!

    I have been to Carolina curtains several times when I went to visit my friend Ina who lived in Cameron but worked in Fayetville. I always came home with some goodies and treasures!! She moved back to MA but I hope to take my friend Jill there sometime when I visit her in SC.

    I know exactlywhat you mean about the eyes not working the same - mine are several years older than yours and cross sttitching is now very hard for me - even with my reading glasses!

  2. Just found your blog & thanks for the sneak peek of Jen's home. I can't wait to get my issue. Love the stitchery pattern ~ I have to wear cheater glasses now to cross stitch but I'm still hooked.

  3. Hi Kimberly, it's Sherrie from S.C.....just found your blog and was so excited. Love all of the pics you have shared with your home and you must finish that x-stitch piece. It will look great with all of your prim goodies! I have stitched a lot of Birds of a Feather but not sure about that one...need to look around my House and see. Thanks for sharing pics of the new CS. Can't wait until mine arrives. Jen does have a beautiful home and is so sweet.
    HOPE YOU ARE HAVING A GOOD sUNDAY and Hope to see you soon at the shop!! Hugs, Sherrie
