**Giveaway closed! Congratulations to Emily C

ho ho ho winner

for winning! I am sending you an email now, so just respond to that and I will send your winnings out to you! Thank you to everyone for entering and leaving such jolly comments.**

It’s Christmas! Or not, but it is the “Ho, Ho, Ho” Blog Hop! Much thanks to Madame SammCarol and Timeless Treasures for hosting and sponsoring!

When I saw the name of the blog hop, I knew I had to use the fun retro Santa fabric that I have been holding onto. I decided to pair it with a lime green fabric in my stash and make a wall hanging. The words are felt appliques I cut and sewed on. Then I had some fun adding quilting stitches!

The back has top corner pockets to hold a dowel for hanging. I like how the little triangles of cheery red polka dot fabric pop off of the grey flannel backing fabric.

I am looking forward to hanging this one up in my house this Christmas season!

I also made this wintery table runner.

I’ve been in a hexagon mood lately (yup, I am looking forward to the hexie blog hop!), so I did some large hexies from a fabric my sister picked up for me a few months ago. It is a winter forest scene with lots of cute forest animals. After attaching the hexies together, I appliqued them to a linen fabric I picked up from my church’s thrift shop (a huge piece for only $3!), then added some complementary quilting stitches. I did linen for the back, too (and I still have tons left).

  11. That vintage Santa sure reminds me of my childhood. 🙂 He even looks like the ‘real’ Santas that came on that special Saturday in December to hand out candy. Loved your hanging and think the Ho Ho Ho will be a great way to remember the hop.

  12. OH my gosh, that Santa fabric is awesome. I LOVE the old fashioned look it has. And it made a great little wallhanging for you. Super cute. The hexie table runner is so cute the way you fussy cut the fabrics. Great job on that too. I just love the little bunnies and foxes in that fabric.

  13. Love the fabrics. The hexies are awesome. I really like them in these fabrics. I have been making some, but not in the Christmas fabrics. They make up into beautiful projects.Thank you for sharing.

  14. That Santa fabric is too cute, and I love the woodland print. It is a beautiful runner; very simple and elegant.

  15. Thank you for sharing such great projects. I do hexies all the time and make them in to bags and pincushions etc, but i had never thought of doing Christmas hexies. Thanks for a lovely giveaway too.

  16. Both of your projects are great. Great detail on the HO,HO,HO. Can’t wait to see what else you came up with for the Hexie hop.

  19. Merry Christmas! Love the retro fabrics – remind me of my childhood. On the animal print, you never see porcupines on fabric, this is so cute. Just makes me smile.

  22. Ho Ho Ho! My son used to call Santa “Ho Ho.” I love that you not only used the line green fabric but also the felt for the applique. That gives the hanging another texture as well as another color. I love polka dots and gasped with glee when I saw the touch of red in the red polka dot hangers for the dowel. This is an adorable hanging. I am working on a Grandmother’s Flower Garden which will take me years. I love the hexies on the linen – it just makes a scene. It is wonderful. Thanks for participating and sharing your creativity with us and making me smile.

  23. That Santa fabric brings back such sweet memories…he’s just as I remember him as a child. Your wall hanging is just too cute and definitely showcases him in a great way. Love it! Sweet deal on your runner and a great way to use hexies.

  24. What a perfect wall hanging for this hop! I love the retro Santa fabric. I also love the fabric in your linen table topper–so cute for Christmas. Lovely work! Thanks for sharing!

  26. I love both of your projects. I like the hexies with their fussy cut cuteness and the ho, ho, ho’s pop on the wall hanging. Nice.

  27. Love the wall hanging – thanks for sharing. I may have to steal your idea for some Christmas fabric I haven’t been able to cut apart.

  28. Have a holly jolly summer Christmas this year!!
