The blog list shows blogs I'm currently following. You can click on them and they'll take you to that blog.
Last week I discovered Blog Hops.
Click on the Holiday Lane, Pillow blog hop button to join the fun.
It will take you to a link of bloggers who took the pattern shown here and made it their own. It is fun to see the different ways people interpret this pattern.
One of my favorite pillows so far comes from Linda at http://buzzingandbumbling.blogspot.com/
Her pillow comes with a poem and I'm sure it will be a family treasure for years to come.
I copied her post here to give you a taste of what the hop has to offer. Enjoy!
Twas the night before Christmas and all down the lane...
The reindeer were playing their games....quite insane!
Poor Santa had just started out down the flue
when "middle aged spread" made it too hard to do!
So there he stuck fast while the reindeer, in glee,
Were as naughty and mischievous as they could be!
Prancer hung over the eaves for a wreath
While Dancer looked on in sheer disbelief!
Donner and Blitzen and Cupid played "Tag"
While Comet, how awful, dumped Santa's big bag!
Poor Rudolph sat quietly, shining his nose,
And all of the others - well, goodness! - Who knows!
While children were dreaming all snug in their beds,
Visions of bedlam filled Santa's poor head!
When morning came finally to Holiday Lane
Nobody dared fuss or even complain.
They pulled poor old Santa right out of that fix
By removing some mortar and quite a few bricks!
The reindeer had all flown back home quite ashamed
And knew that for all that they'd done they'd be blamed.
But Santa made up for the mess when he gifted
Each person, who smiled as his spirits were lifted.
and then he was gone without leaving a trace!
