Joy - Times Thirty
The farthest Christmas pillow I sent was received in California yesterday so I can now reveal this years design.
I decided to utilize my stash and use a variety of green cottons for the basic pillow.
I had a box of all sorts of lovely lace, left over from the years of making porcelain dolls all
'dolled' up with vintage clothing.
I made thirty in all.
Each year I try to make an accompanying card that resembles the pillow.
This is what this years card looked like.
I think that I will have the cut off for making pillows the year I turn 70. I know I have to give up the gig sometime so that seems to be a fitting time. Right now the count of years I have done the pillows is at 27. I just did the math and I think I will do the cut off at 69 when the count for completing the pillow give away is at an even 30. I think.
