And another one ....

This is just a cute little quiz to see what your Halloween personality is. This is me:

What Your Halloween Habits Say About You

You're a friendly person, but not the life of the party. You like making someone else's day - and you'll dress up if you think of a really fun costume.

You definitely think of yourself as someone who has a dark side. And part of having that dark side means not showing it.

Your inner child is creative, patient, and whimsical.

You truly fear the dark side of humanity. You are a true misanthrope.

You're prone to be quite emotional and over dramatic. Deep down, you enjoy being scared out of your mind... even if you don't admit it.

You are unique, expressive, and a trendsetter. Your ideal Halloween costume is over the top and one of a kind.

Go on you know you want to ... go on and check it out.

Or if you prefer you could try this one:

You Scored an A

You got 10/10 questions correct.

It's pretty obvious that you don't make basic grammatical errors.
If anything, you're annoyed when people make simple mistakes on their blogs.
As far as people with bad grammar go, you know they're only human.
And it's humanity and its current condition that truly disturb you sometimes.

or maybe this one

You Are a Link Blogger!

Your blog is more about cool links than thougtful posts.
Better to be entertaining and breif than longwinded and boring!

Oh well as they say in the cartoons THAT'S ALL FOLKS!

Two in less than a week

Wonders will never cease! I entered into another exchange in the Legacy Bulletin Board which I really love going to. If any of you don't belong to Legacy it isn't an open bulletin board. Everyone who joins has to belong to Ezboard and pay their $7.00 for 6 months and I don't recommend that anyone joins for any longer because we don't know how long Ezboard is going to be around. Then when you have joined Ezboard you have to make a profile and put your name and email address in there. Everyone there is really really nice and considerate.

Anyway every quarter Nancy Kuelbs runs the Quarterly Quaker exchange which is a lot of hard work for her and I really appreciate everything she does. This quarter the theme was Halloween and this is what I received from Carol:

and very soon I will show you what I have been stitching.

Now for something different.

I am Elizabeth Bennet!

Take the Quiz here!

:: L I Z Z Y ::

You are Elizabeth Bennet of Pride & Prejudice! You are intelligent, witty, and tremendously attractive. You have a good head on your shoulders, and oftentimes find yourself the lone beacon of reason in a sea of silliness. You take great pleasure in many things. You are proficient in nearly all of them, though you will never own it. Lest you seem too perfect, you have a tendency toward prejudgement that serves you very ill indeed.

Thank you so much to everyone who looks at my Blog. I really appreciate it and love your comments too. Until next time Happy Monday

I know, I know exactly what you are going to say FINALLY!! Well I have been stitching but there is absolutely nothing I can show you on here because they are all for presents. But I received two packages in the mail this morning. Firstly I would like to apologise about the sideways photos. But, this is a new FREE computer and I don't have any software for it because I have been using a Mac for the past couple of years and this one is a PC laptop which I got free when I signed up for AOL for 2 years with a company here in the U.K. called Carphone Warehouse who have bought the UK AOL Company and this is their deal and I snapped it up.

One was a sort of unexpected present from my friend Deb whom I love to bits and this is what she sent....

This is a photo of everything she sent for which I thank her immensely because she didn't have to but she is so sweet and THANK YOU, and now individually

Sorry about the glare - I am getting a bit better at taking photos but I didn't have the any flowers today to add to my photos but I did put a cloth on the table and I think that this says it all. It is just the lovelies Kreinik kit ever and I LOVE it to pieces and then there is .....

This Pencil Case which has skull and cross bones all over it and is very Halloweenie if you know what I mean. And my new favorite color is brown and cream so it is just perfect. I shall probably put the threads in that I am using for the project I am currently working on to keep them safe and then there is ....

This really lovely card making kit which has all kinds of different hand made paper and ribbon and things you would never think of. It is just so lovely and is a craft I have yet to try ... so watch out and then there is ...

Then there was this lovely magazine that I hadn't seen before (at least I don't think I had) and it had a few charts in there that I am definitely going to stitch because I loved them and then last but by no means least Deb sent me this ...

Really lovely card with even lovelier words in it. If you click on the card you can read the words - they mean so much to me and I feel the same about her. She is at a stitchers gathering tonight so won't get to see it yet but when she does I just want her to know how much her friendship means to me.
