It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas, everywhere you go...
I LOVE this time of year. It's just so magical and special.
My daughter is 4 and so excited about Christmas this year. She is such a sweetie and is often thinking of others. She always wants to make things for friends and family as gifts. I love her sweet heart.
It truly is so much fun to make something for someone else, especially when it's a surprise. I get giddy with anticipation over seeing their reaction and hopefully their appreciation.
I knew when it was my turn to make the Holiday Lane Blog Hop pillow that I would give mine to my sweet grandmother. She's 95 and is still sharp and funny and going strong. I hope I got her genes!
We spent Thanksgiving together this past weekend, and I brought her the pillow to brighten up her apartment. She doesn't do a Christmas tree anymore but I knew she would appreciate something festive. I'm happy to say she loved it.
Have you tried pebble quilting? O-M-G- so fun! I loved it and can't wait to try it again. If there are rules to pebble quilting, I don't know them so don't look too close.
I do wish I had put the houses on a road or something that set them up a bit higher and more front and center on the pillow. The pebble quilting gives it a great snowy sky though so I think it works out just fine.
I hope you'll all stick around to check out my Deck the Halls series of holiday tutorials and giveaways that kicks off today! There are great prizes to be won including a $50 gift certificate to Contemporary Cloth. CLICK HERE to enter to win!
Then head over to these other stops on the Holiday Lane blog hop to check out the other pillows! Happy Holidays!
