Tweaking and a Pattern Pass~Along

Well, it has certainly warmed up in our corner of the world (Eastern Ky.) this wk. and supposed to have a major heat~wave all week, so I've been staying in mostly and tweaking a few things around the house just a little.

This little Americana vignette is in our laundry room. I just grabbed some things from our Americana living room and put them together to switch out the seasonal decor in there.

I love draping old or new quilts on a bench or couch or even from a quilt rack. There is just something about a quilt that is so timeless and cozy.....

These are my new 'star' dishes I got awhile back(actually a Mother's Day gift from hubby, which first started out as a Christmas gift, LOL). Had them in lay~away and finally got them out! (trying to make the kitchen a little more primitive).....Then of course I had to tweak the side cabinet and star shelf on the other wall....Just went w/a very simple look this time.....Stole, oops, I mean borrowed some things from different parts of the house.....and tried to keep it looking 'prim'.....The other day I finished another quilt top ~ 'Blue Boy' - just like the pink one I showed not too long ago, only in blue/brown this time. 'Pinkie' is off at the quilter's being machine quilted this wk. My very first quilt I've ever sent off, so I should get it back next wk. Then I'll have to do the same w/this one.....

Which brings me to the pattern pass-along~~~Since I bought 2 separate kits for the baby quilts~Pinkie and Blue Boy, I have an extra pattern that I don't really need, so I will give this one away, FREE of charge and send to just about anywhere.

All you have to do is leave me a comment on this post only and I will put the names in a bowl and pick one out, then get ahold of you for your addie. All I ask is that you are a follower of my blog, that's it. So if you aren't, all you have to do is click on, it's that simple. No advertising, no jumping through loops or a big list of rules, just be a follower and comment on this post only. You can have till next wk. ~ Wed. June 27th at NOON(Eastern Daylight Time) to leave a comment on here.

Ya never know, I just might add a little 'goodie' along w/the pattern.

Until then, I hope all of you are enjoying your summer as much as I am!! Thanks always for stopping by!!
