What a gorgeous surprise!

I got another beautiful surprise in the post today - a tiny but perfectly made pinkeep from Helen. Isn't it gorgeous? A perfect choice for me too - I love red and alphabets as you may know. And flowers too!


The back is amazing - a beautiful rose and trailing leaves. It really is exquisite and so nicely finished. I'll treasure it. Thank you Helen!


As you know, I'm very behind on my blog reading (and in fact I've just skimmed the 600+ posts I had to read and I'm starting from scratch), so I'm very honoured that Helen wrote that this is a thank you for my comments on her blog. If I commented a lot it's because everything you stitch is so lovely Helen!
