Helen Has Been Here!! Angels Are Sighing!

Darling Helen surprised me with a get well gift which came today. Oh, you could have heard the angels sigh!!

It was the gift you dream of. The package was wrapped with care and pink silk ribbon. Inside the outer celephane wrap and french blue tissue paper sat a french blue silk bag like a jewelers pouch, hand-stitched and tied with another ecru silk ribbon. Inside this precious little bag was the final treasure. A delicate little fob! It is so tiny, and so sweet, and so finely stitched and finished you could just look at it every day for the rest of your life and never tire of it.

Just look at that tiny bird and peace branch, and the rosy stars around it.
It's finished on the back with the blue silk fabric and dressed with a tiny silver heart, and beads and a crystal, as you see.

Helen, you have given me the equivalent of a miniature hazelnut truffle cake with whipped cream frosting and an array of strawberries across the top!

I adore it!!

Stitching friends, I'm very sorry, you will just have to gulp very hard and eat the ol' green monster tonight! I love you all....
