Look What Came in the Mail!

I got mail! I got mail!
On Wednesday I went to the post office to pick up a special package from my 'pen pal' who lives in Japan. We have been corresponding by email for almost 5 years now! Wow! How time flies! I can't believe it is that long already! Her English is amazing, which is a good thing because my Japanese is totally nonexistent. At the present time she and I are working on a wall hanging which you can see here.

She sent me this wonderful table runner, which she cross stitched herself. I just love it! The colours are so bright and cheerful! This will look great on my table! I'm almost afraid to use it!

Here is a shot of the detail of one of the flower motifs. How lucky am I to have such a great friend! Thanks Keiko!
