February Christmas Project

I won the pattern for this pillow from Lola over at ...and Sew On in a giveaway she hosted last year. It was one of three and I had wanted to make it for last Christmas.

Well, it's done now and counts as my February Christmas 2010 project.

The quilting is all done on Farmyard Stack and I just have the binding to sew down. Hope to have a picture for you next weekend along with my February Snowman from Bunnyhill.

After that, it will be time to layout my Simple Abundance quilt with a layer cake from Busy Thimbles. There are some fabulous new products on offer and there is an in-store clearance sale from 11-13 February. I can't wait!

Vintage Sandy is hosting a delightful giveaway with a heart theme which will be drawn on Valentine's Day.

Happy Stitching



  1. A very cute snowman pillow. And a great start on sewing for the holiday. You won't have to rush at the last minute to finish it.

  2. Ann,
    I love the snowman, I love all snowmen but yours is really cute!


  3. Okay, I'm running behind again on Christmas, even though I have the fabrics and pattern layed out. I may have to change to a simpler pattern this month in order to catch up with you.
