New pillow for a new year

My Pillow Talk Swap-4 pillow arrived while I was in California celebrating my in-laws 60th wedding anniversary!
 My secret swap partner -- Nik Ramirez --  obviously studied my inspirational mosaic and/or Flickr photostream, and/or blog to know that the cross blocks and blues, greens, and grays would be a big hit with me!  
 A sunny morning and a lovely new pillow to end the year with.  Sigh of contentment.
Oh, and she threw in some charm squares, a coffee sleeve, thread, and a produce bag! 

Thank you so much for a great swap, Nik, and our fabulous hostesses, Heather, Kerry, and Nova, and swap mamas Tacha, Kelly, and Tami!  Pillow Talk Swap - 5?  I'm ready!

With wishes, true and kind and a happy new year to all -- Joan
