                                    During this Grow Your Blog Party
                                             I indeed grew my Blog
                                        and made a lot of new friends
                                                   and followers .
                            Again a huge THANK YOU !!! to Vicki from
                                            2 Bags Full for hosting 
                                this Blog Party and giving us as a chance
                                     to visit so many interesting blogs
                                and see and enjoy many things of beauty.
                                   To see her beautiful blog click Here 
                               Throughout the years it has been  wonderful
                          to get so much of inspiration, seeing the artworks of
                                              many blog friends.
                                       To work out my own ideas.
                              Hoping I might inspire others in my way.

                                        So happy it seems that I did.......

                          Cheri from 'The Quilting Nanny' decided to change
                             the name of her blog in 'Fabric and Memories'
                                         during the first week of the
                                           Grow Your Blog Party.

                                   She found her new passion in making
                                             Memory Fabric Books.
                                        You can read her story HERE.
                                  Thank you so much Cheri for featuring me .

                       Today I want to share an other wedding present I made .
                            It was for a niece ( again......I have a lot of nieces : )
                                  Sarah married her Koen past December.
                                             Such a lovely couple !!
                            I decided to make a personalized ( well....sort of  )
                                 snippet roll . Or an altered spool if you like....
                             Had seen several on Pinterest and really wanted
                                          to try and make one myself .
                           I'd like to share not only the pictures of the present ,
                                              but a little bit more....... :)

                                                  An Irish Blessing .
                                      " May the road rise to meet you ,
                                    may the wind be always at your back .
                                  May the sun shine warm upon your face ,
                                        the rain fall soft upon your fields.........
                                and until we meet again , until we meet again.......
                                May God hold you in the palm of His Hand .
                                      May the sun make your day bright,
                                      may the stars illuminate your night.
                                  May the flowers bloom along your path ,
                                   your house stand firm against the storm.........
                                and until we meet again , until we meet again.......                                                                             
                                May God hold you in the palm of His Hand". 

                                    Here's a little story about the tiny bottle.......
                                            It contains water , rainwater ,
                               that fell on the day Sarah and Koen got married .
                                             This idea is not my own ,
                        I saw it quite some time ago on a Blog , and I'm so sorry
                                  that I don't remember whose Blog it was .
                           So if any of you knows whose wonderful idea it was
                                    to put rainwater of the day of marriage
                           in a little bottle , as a wedding present , please tell me
                                   so I can give this lady full credit here !!! 

                                      As a family we sang at the wedding .
                                         Sarah's mother is from Ireland.
                                   One of the songs was 'An Irish Blessing'
                                   and this seemed the thing  to do for me ,
                                      to add this little gift as a symbol of.........
                                "the rain that may fall soft upon their fields ". 



                           The three pockets I made are from fabric images
                                            of the wedding invitation.
                                The dress code was : A touch of color......

                                             Hope you enjoyed.................

                          "May God hold you in the palm of His Hand...."
                                                                      With Love,
