Holiday Lane Blog Hop!!

Another Super Fun blog hop!!

Thanks to Madame Samm's inspiration and Pauline of the Quilt n Queen for hosting all the fun!!

Once I realized how large it was going to be I decided to make it into a table runner instead. I did shrink it by one house. I chose wood style fabrics for my houses.
I had small snowflake buttons so I used them for door knobs and I had a small sleigh and reindeer buttons which I stitched in my night star sky. Its hard to tell but my border says Merry Christmas in the squares.

Here are the other creative ladies posting today!! Go check out all their wonderful creations!!
