Day 3 at Holiday Lane Blog hop...

pillow blog hop day 3

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...
Can you believe it is FRIDAY ALREADY....

been all here, every one of them was fantastic....

This lady chose such great fabric, love the words on the "cuffs"
certainly puts you in the Christmas spirit..
I would love to live on this Holiday Lane...

                                   This lady is known for creativity, no disappointing here...you will have search her out and 
                                           take a peak at all of her details...absolutely brilliant...
And this lady chose a theme and very bright colours, which made this pillow stand out even more...

BRAVO ladies...

YOUR CHEERLEADER for this event will be .......

YOU are going to love this 
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...
