Twelve Days of Christmas
A few years ago I stitched Xmas quilts for my sisters.
I called this quilt "A Song for Mary" because she knows the words to so much music and this song seemed right for her.
The Twelve Days of Christmas" is an English Christmas carol that sings of a series of increasingly grand gifts given on each of the twelve days of Christmas. It was first published in England in 1780 and traditionally began the first day after Xmas ending with the Epiphany on January 6.
The modern Twelve Days of Xmas needs a Santa to bring old traditions together in this quilt.

Welcome to The Holiday Lane pillow blog hop. Thank you to Pauline Francis for being such a lovely hostess and keeping everyone organized, to Jill Findley for the lovely pattern and to Madame Samm for creating such interesting programs to keep us sewers constantly in creative mode.
I could not resist this delightful cookie jar today when I spotted him in the gift shop. Villages were on my mind and the gingerbread house could happily live on Holiday Lane.
Holiday Lane could easily become a table runner.

I loved the way the flange was stitched. This was a new technique for me to learn.
Grab a cuppa and enjoy all the other pillows on the hop.

|Memories of my mother are found in so many blocks of this quilt sewn from the house dresses she loved.|
She would have been 90 today if she were still with us.
"Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also."
Her umbrella lady blocks were stitched into a quilt for her youngest granddaughter.
