FABULOUS Homespun & Holly Event!
Sorry for the absence for the last couple months. I’m back and am committed to make this social media thing a much higher priority. It’s a challenge for me but I love reading others blogs so I need to keep up myself. I’ll catch you up in the next few days but I want to share with you what I did this weekend.
Saturday I had the privilege of teaching at the third annual Homespun and Holly event at Hollyhill Quilt Shoppe. This was my third year and it just keeps getting better and better! Jan and Brian Hill, the Mother ~ Son team that IS Hollyhill do everything BIG and it’s awesome!
I’m going to give you a little tour of the evening through pictures~
We were welcomed by a beautiful tree and “Door quilt”.
Beautiful name tags~
and truffles. We’re off to a great start!
Jan and Brian welcomed everyone and had left a gift at each persons place at the tables. They told them to open and you should have heard the response!! When the packages were opened the participants found a jelly roll in their boxes! What a wonderful gift.
I walked around the room taking in the amazing set up for the event. Four designers were teaching and each had their own station to teach at.
Here’s the designers, their stations and the project they taught.
Debbie Busby of Wooden Spool Designs.

A mini tree skirt made of wool was Debbie's project. It’s oh so cute! Using some hand dyed wools by Debbie made it extra special.
Next ~ introducing Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs.

This sweet wool snowman pillow was Anne’s project.
Next is Karla Eisenach of Sweetwater.

These fun little bags were Karla’s project. At Sweetwater the make the greatest labels. They were a fun adornment on the bags.
Last but not least. the Sweet Treasures station …. mine.
My project was a little framed christmas tree with burlap backing and a little bling. Fun and fast!
These ruffled strips can be turned into other shapes. Joyce make a wreath with her kit. Soooo cute!
Another students wreath.
What a GREAT event. If you ever have the opportunity to join us at Homespun and Holly, do it! You’ll love it. Plans are already beginning for next year……..
I’ll be posting free instructions for my project later in the week. It’s a great project for decorating with or gift giving.
Thanks for visiting!!
