Irish Blessings!

Have you seen this guy?

If you do, tell him that his mother says to stay out of trouble!

Did I mention that this son is in Ireland right now?

How fun is that? What a beautiful country that is.
I can't wait to see the pictures and hear the stories.



I have a small show of inspiration and tribute to share with you today.

These inspirations are from Lynda.




I want to share something with all of you about one of our fellow Schnibblers. Lynda Green.
Lynda has been participating in A Year of Schnibbles since we started and although at first she didn't have her blog set up, but she soon got it started and I was enjoying reading it.
I had noticed that she didn't submit a Schnibbles for February and was very taken back by visit to her blog. The post was written by her adoring daughter.
She wrote that Lynda suddenly passed away. I was sad to know that I wasn't going to get to know her better. She was a new blog friend and as you know, we have a special community here in blogland. But as you can see from her quilts, she is an inspiration
and leaves a legacy to her family.
Courtney, Lynda's daughter wrote that Lynda loved children and promoting reading and she also suggested donating a book in her name to a local library in her honor. I plan on doing this and hope that the suggestion is something you might consider doing also. Please take a moment to read the last posts from Lynda and her daughter. I am sure your comments will be appreciated.




May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

I will also miss Lynda as I was one of her followers (makes me sound like a groupie or stalker). Thank you for the words in tribute. We certainly do build up relationships in Blogland I find it quite difficult to imagine that many of the friends I have meet I may not have the chance to meet in person in this life time.

Very nice tribute to Lynda....how is it that we can all feel so connected to each other through our blogs and quilting....it really is a small world.

Thank you Sinta!

Oh and St. Patty's in Ireland????? too much fun!!!

I will absolutely do that in Lynda's honor. What a lovely tribute you offered for her.
Do you think we both could end up with Irish daughters in law?
