Holiday Lane Pillow blog and GIVEAWAY||||


Well today is my day to show my pillow. I really enjoyed this pattern and was very happy with the result.

 
 
 
 
Thanks to the Quilt n Queen  for hosting  the Blog. A special thanks to Jill Finley for the pattern. It was very easy to follow and I enjoyed it. Thanks to Madam Sam for cheering us on and all the work that goes into hosting a blog.  Make sure you visit the other ladies that are posting today.
 
Tuesday November 27













 
And now for the give away. I have been spending a lot of time trying to figure out what to give for a give away and decided to make something. It will be something special to remind everyone what fun we had on  this blog.
The only rule for this give away is to be a follower and leave a comment on how you have enjoyed this blog. Oh you are wondering what the give away is. Here is a picture.
 
 
This sock pattern was in a tutorial and I thought it was so nice that I made four to hang on my mantel for my four beautiful grandchildren. And you know Christmas stockings, they may have something special in them. Have fun with the rest of the blog and thanks for letting me be a part of it.

  48. Marla, your Holiday Lane pillow is wonderful. I love seeing all the different color combinations, from the traditional Christmas reds and greens to not so traditional. My reds are usually on the burgundy side too. This pattern is so versatile. Your fabric choices are awesome and your embellishments are perfect. Great job Marla!! Thanks for sharing your time and inspiration with all of us today. Happy stitching, Pauline

  49. I love these hops. I wanted to do this Holiday Lane hop but we have our family Christmas in early December and knew I'd be toooo busy getting my decorating done, the presents all wrapped, etc., etc. I've gotten lots of marvelous ideas for when I tackle my own Holiday Lane pillow.
