Friday - free pattern!

Happy Friday!  I've been busy this week preparing for a short vacation trip to Massachusetts.  My entire family except my mom lives up north, and most of my closest friends!  So I'm really looking forward to visiting!! 

I'm taking my Spring Fling kit with me - I'm working with the blue kit.

Challenges with kits are some of my favorites.  They remind me of school children art projects...where everyone gets similar or the same materials and instructions - yet the results are ALWAYS individual! 
I took these at Jackson's school last night while I was there for the book fair/science fair night. Jackson received the illustrious "participant" ribbon for his tireless work on Peeps disintegration!

 The event took place in the library and I saw one of my favorite children's books while I was there:

Have you read this book?  Not only do I love this sweet story - but I really adore the illustrations:

So the cover of The Little House was my inspiration for creating the free pattern this week:

Stay tuned for the Blogging from A-Z challenge beginning Sunday, where I'll be blogging about all things beads or things related to my bead world!


  1. Amy, Have a nice time in Mass. I have started on my challenge piece. Congratiulations to Jackson for a job well done. I have never read that book not as a child (which it more than likely was not published then) or to my Son when he was a child, but I do think your pattern is very nice.

  2. Have an awesome trip! I love your free pattern!!!!

  3. Oh.. how wonderful that was my favorite book when I was a kid. My parents gave it to me for my birthday. I wore it out.! My kids also loved it. I'm going to purchase another one for my grandchildren. You brought very happy memmories for me. Thank you


Thank you for your comments!! They really mean a lot!
