Today is my day in the Holiday Lane Blog Hop!

A big thanks to Mdm. Samm of Sew We Quilt,
& Pauline of Quilt-n-Queen for hosting this fun hop,
and to Jill of Jillily Studio for sharing her wonderful pillow pattern!

This is my version of the Holiday Lane Pillow
I played with a lot of fabrics,
but just had to use this fun print by Tula Givens
from her Christmas Pageant line

I used it for the back of the pillow
and some of the little guys made it to the front
in the windows and some of the doors

 This little dog is my favorite

 and the little mouse is sooo cute!

 love him to!!!

…there’s a mouse in the house, lol!

 I used Moda Minky for the snow
and Superior’s Silver Metallic thread…
probably the best metallic thread I’ve ever used
with only one breakage in the whole project…
….and that’s because I was sewing too fast!

I had a great time working on this project!
You’ve got to see what the other participants in

New Hop and a Winner!


Hello! It has been a while…


and after a very fun, successful trip to Houston,
I am so ready to get back to “normal”….
I heard someone say that “normal”
is just a setting in your dryer, he he! I agree!
… but I’ll still give it a try, LOL!

I want to thank everyone for visiting during the
Glorious Autumn Block Party hosted by Michele.
I really enjoyed reading all about what you love most about quilting!
For me, it’s the color, the fabric,
and the wonderful friends I’ve met thanks to quilting!
So…. the winner of my Autumn Bliss Pattern and charm pack is:
Rebecca Grace! She said… 

“You come up with the sweetest designs,

and this tree is no exception. Adorable! 

What do I like most about quilting?
I love that, unlike the hours I spend making meals that just get eaten,
washing laundry that just gets dirty again, etc.,
quilting gives me something lasting to show for my work.
And I like playing with fabric. :-)”

Love, love…°Ü°
