My Holiday Lane

Finally, it's my day for the Holiday Lane blog hop. I'm glad  that I was on the next to the last day because I just finished with about an hour to spare. When I saw this pattern from Jillily Studio, I knew that I had to make one. The houses and Christmas trees are so cute and can be embellished many ways. I didn't realize how big the pillow was until I started making it so I made it a little smaller. It was made envelope pillow style so that it can be taken off of the pillow for ease of washing if need be. I still need to make a pillow form for it, though.





 Can anyone tell that this is the day AFTER Christmas? Here's a clue in this photo.



 A very happy Santa on his way to Hawaii for a little R & R. Which is where I wish I could go during the cold winter months.

This project has been so much fun. I really want to thank Pauline for a the work she's done to make this blog hop a resounding success. I would also like to thank Mme Samm at Sew We Quilt for being our wonderful cheerleader. And please don't forget to visit the rest of the blogs scheduled for today.
