The Christmas Pillow

In November 2012 I played along in a blog hop hosted by Madame Samm using a Christmas pillow
pattern, Holiday Lane, by Jill Finley of Jillily Studios. It was such a fun pattern to sew!

You can still find Jill's pattern HERE.

In 2012 there were only four Monkey Boys posing on this pillow.

Now there are five...you can't even see the pillow!

This guy was the baby in the first picture. He looked a lot more peaceful then.

Awww, much better!

I really wanted this adorable English Bulldog puppy, but I'm glad she went to a good home.
Once she got big she wouldn't have fit through my doggy door!

That face...love it!

It's time to get ready for 2017.
I can't wait to be inspired by what everyone is quilting and sewing!


  1. Aww, look how they've grown. Cute pictures!

  2. great pics! My daughter still has my pillow too from the swap though the batting is kind of squashed in there.

  3. Oh, I remember that pattern and pillow. My, they have grown so!! Oh, I would have taken that pup and gotten a bigger dog door once she grew.

  4. I pull out my pillow for Christmas every year. That was a fun pattern to work with. The kids have grown up so much. Time flies.

  5. What fun to see them then and now!!! I loved that pillow blog hop. There were so many cute ones.

  6. Gosh the monkey boys have gotten big. So grown up and "mostly" happy. But the puppy has my heart. What a cutie pie. Thanks so much for sharing the little Santa with us.

  7. Love the photos of the boys posing on the pillow!

  8. I remember when you made that pillow. The boys are cute and growing so fast!

  9. Oh your post made me smile!! Love the tradition of your Christmas pillow and your grands are all A D OR A B L E!!!

  10. Love the pillow and how much the boys have grown. Isn't that puppy sweet? I would have wanted to keep that sweet face too.

  11. The dog picture, oh how cute is that. I can't believe how much those handsome guys have grown! I can still remember when you had Jason, a BOY! How time flies when we have family to love and enjoy. That picture of the dog......I see one of those babies in your future. He or she will be barking at your door for a new home. They are so dang cute!
