Day 2 of Holiday Lane blog hop Happy Thanksgiving!

pillow blog hop day 2

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)

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?

 HERE are those on the hop today...

                              Here are our top 3...

 This Lady created one that would be perfect for a girls room..
.don't you just love the fabric choices...?
very whimsical...

And this lady, loves detail...take a close up of her pillow turn into a wallhanging...be sure to check
out all of her close up shots...you just gotta love all the priceless extras...

and this one just invites you to cuddle up 
with it, especially if you are in your warm cuddles.
This lady made it homey to go with her lovely couch! 


  and an honourable mention for story line..you have got to read this ladies...

What is sooooo darn appealing is some to the stories
behind the PILLOW...read this ladies...she does know how to add
that magic...so she is our Honourable mention today...
