Today's Mail.

Don't you love receiving parcels in the mail? Especially when you are expecting some eBay wins! I had two of those today - a gorgeous little suppercloth with koalas stitched on it - so cute! The other was one of two items from the USA - a table runner featuring a peacock - yes, another peacock!! Love those birds...
The other item from America was a complete mystery. I didn't recognise the sender's name and address, and when I opened up the packet and a bundle of small cross stitch kits fell out, I was still wondering who had sent them, as I knew I hadn't bid for them on eBay. Then I read the note that was enclosed. It was from dear Peggy at Hidden Haven Homestead. She had emailed me some time ago, asking for my postal address. She said she wanted to send me some things that I would like. It seems she had found all these kits at a bargain price and grabbed them for me, knowing how I love cross stitch. I am often in awe of people's generosity and kindness, even more so when it is someone who you have never met, are never likely to meet, but have become friends in cyberspace. Thank you very much, Peggy. I have posted a thank you message on your blog, but wanted to acknowledge you here as well.
While I was visiting Hidden Haven Homestead, I found another of those fascinating quiz thingys, and of course had to try it out!

what decade does your personality live in?

This is funny - the first time I did it, I was a child of the 60's! Wonder which question I answered differently the second time around?

Oh wow.. I didn't think I'd be a 1950's sheila as well. Maybe I should give it another go? :)

Well, no - reading your blog, I thought you would be 70's at least!

How nice to read about your special gift from Peggy. She's such a sweetheart.
