Royal Mail !

We are in the middle of the move and don't have a post box up yet so the Post Office is holding the mail for the new house. I forgot what it's like living in a village with only about 80 people.

When I went to pick up the mail this past Saturday...what excitment! The whole Post Office was in a buzz because I got a package marked "Royal Mail" from South Wales. Why you would think it came directly from the Queen herself with all the fuss. I bet all 80 people were told I got this package!

The package came from Gina, Gina sent me a house warming gift. When I got to the Post Office, I was pretty much exhausted, dirty, hungry and just needed to lay down. All the fuss gave me a serge of engery and I had to of course open it right there in the post office so all the ladies could see what came from so far away!

Thank you Gina for making everyone's day just a bit brighter with this package. I just love it! Purple and turquoise are one of my favorite combinations and the gold just sets it off so nicely. I can't wait to get a sewing room again so I can hang all my quilties up where I can enjoy them everyday. For now, your Star quilt will adorn my cubby in my bedroom. The card made me smile. I had just spent the day planting 10 peony bushes at the new house!

I'm glad you liked it. I'm sorry about the fuss that the envelope caused though.

Love and hugs Gina xxx

Gina - the quilt you made is just beautiful - I love the colors. What a thoughtful gift.

Holee, everytime you talk about your town it sounds like mine. That was nice of you to open it in the post office for the other people.

Peony bushes sound so pretty. I have been painting inside the house here and it made me think of you and all the things you are doing to your house.

Make sure I get your new address eventually.

How are things coming along?
