HOLIDAY LANE
pillow blog hop

EVER since I saw this pillow last fall from 
our  sweet JiLL from  Jillily StudioI fell in love with it...
Clearly a year later it still is one of my most favourite
designs from a very sweet lady  whom I admire...
She is witty, bright, inspiring and downright creative! 


SEW I called her and convinced her in my very firm way lol
that I WANTED this pillow pattern for our blog hop.
She finally accepted my reasoning...
"If I love it, everyone will love it too" lol

 Jill has a new book out,  new fabric line and this Holiday Lane pillow
pattern to share...This is "simple piecing and a little applique."..
( once the book and fabric comes in, I will be taking photos
to show you too)


YOU all will get the Pattern FREE from her...Here is the link
for the PDF file...

And you will be creating your own HOLIDAY LANE pillow,
using your stash or newly purchased fabrics...

I am excited to say the least to see what your HOLIDAY LANE
will look like..

Would you believe JILL and I have already discussed
next years HOLIDAY LANE PILLOW series...Yep...lol

SEW there you have it my dear blog hoppers, creators
and designers...This will be our very last blog hop for 2012...

I am feeling the HOLIDAY spirit already, ARE YOU?

lady as much as we all do ....She is a perfect cheerleader
for this event...She loves HOLIDAYS, she loves cheering everyone on, 
and  she loves this pillow
almost as much as I do lol..

I met Pauline almost 2 years ago. She was so quiet
and reserved, she had a voice but she did not use it very often..
I saw something in her..in fact I saw a lot....She is the QUEEN
of binding, she is a terrific embroideries', her quilts are divine...
She is passionate, funny, someone you are glad to know...

When I asked her about this hop...she embraced
is as much as the pillow blog hop idea...
I am sew glad she did....
She has found her voice! 


SEW sign up with Pauline here...

  53. I don't want to just say this is my 2nd comment so I will tell you something about my dinner tonight..

    My hubby loves rice! I think he could eat it 3 times a day... I unthawed some beef tips and proceeded to make him some tips and gravy to put over his rice. I had a packet of Beef Roast spices and used that along with some flour to make the gravy.

    DO NOT!

    I repeat... DO NOT ever do that!

    It was so salty that I don't think the dog will even eat it! lol
