The 2012 Christmas Pillow

I just had to cancel my teeth cleaning appointment I had scheduled today because I can barely stop coughing. It is that stage of my cold that it's necessary to sound like you are coughing up a lung. I am sure it means that it is breaking up andt I think the gag reflex would be an issue with the hygienist.   I rescheduled with plenty of time in between appointments to get rid of the cold. As much as I hate to say it, we need a freeze.

I got the okay from California (the farthest journey my Christmas pillow takes) for the big reveal of this years pillow.  This is the 23rd year that I have done this.  I actually had to make two different
pillows, because I was enamored with both of these Marimekko fabrics but couldn't 
get enough of either to make thirty pillows.  I thought this year there was a bit of an Asian feel in the design.
As is normally the case, the enclosure cards try to replicate some part of the pillow.  I give all the credit (and most of the work) for these to my sis Mike.  She's crazy for cutting card stock!

As usual...each year these are just outstanding. Think this is my favorite!

I always look forward to seeing the current pillow. Each year is better than the last.
