Let it Snow, Let it Snow!

It's my turn to show my "Holiday Lane". This blog hop has been filled with adorable little villages of houses all dressed up for the holidays. I would like to say a big Thank you to Mdm Samm at http://www.sewwequilt.com/ and Pauline at http://quiltnqueen.blogspot.com/ for organizing this hop and a big thanks to Jill from http://www.jillilystudio.com/ for supplying the pattern. Thanks for encouraging us to try new things. This pattern was easy to follow and fun to make.  I used fleece for the snow. I tried a couple different stitches to attach the snow to the roofs. Not sure which one I like, but it was fun trying different stitches on my machine. I found some cute mini holiday lights that I hand sewed to one of the trees. I think I will go back and add some to at least one more tree. I'm still just a "stitch in the ditch" quilter,  but I plan to get courageous and try new quilting techniques soon. I just purchased a book to learn machine quilting called "Show me how to Machine Quilt" by Kathy Sandbach. 
I hope you enjoy my contribution to the hop:

 
 
This second photo is very blurry, but I wanted to show the mini lights on the tree. Aren't they just sweet? I plan to hand sew more on the tall tree to the right on the photo above.






Please check out the other adorable pillows for today:
