For the last 10 days I have been in Copenhagen  helping my
daughter pack up her home, for her moove to a nother
apartment, very soon, --also we gave her a helping hand with
painting the new place , so I have not had much time to
enjoy your blogpost, or visit on fb, I hope to follow up, on your doings
this next coming week !!

This snippet roll is a gift I made for my dear Danish friend
Bettina, for her birthday ,last week!!

Yes I love creating snippet rolls , and love using nature images,
tiny pieces and old laces, so I desided on this :"to see nature "

The birds are freebies from a lot of different places, so I`m sorry
not to be able to give credit to the sweet giver !!

I hope you all have had a wonderful week, and wishes you all ,
happy and creative days to come !! 

With hugs and love from Dorthe,
thanking you all, for cozy visits and lovely comments !!

Oh wow dear Dorthe, your snippet roll is so gorgeous! I love your bird rolls, they're very inspiring and they make me want to make my own :) Did you use your home-dyed fabrics and laces for this sweetie? Wishing you a beautiful day and sending you many hugs, xx

Welcome home Dorthe Dear. Your snippet roll is lovely and such a thoughtful gift for Bettina. My mother's name was Bettina to some people. I really must make a snippet roll as I am so loving them and we all know I have lots of scraps to fill it up with. Creative Bliss Dear...

hello dear Dorthe

You are very good to your daughter - she is so lucky to have you reasonably close by.
I would love to do all those things too - you know that I'm sure!
It was Fathers Day here on Sunday, so I took my husband out to a nice cafe for breakfast - when I told him about it - he said "but I'm not you father"!
With both of our children living overseas - I don't want him to miss out!!

Your snippet roll is very beautiful, we all love and appreciate nature, and Bettina will love it too. You are such a kind friend dear Dorthe.
It's lovely to have you back with us.

Much love

How nice of you to help your daughter with her move. They are always so tiring and packing is so much work. I hope her new place will be a nice new beginning for her and the kids! <3

Exquisite. Those beautiful images of birds but also the delicate colours, all speaking of nature which you bring together in this stunning creation for your dear friend. I adore the little tag, in the first photograph. So very special a gift.

Lovely to see you back, Dorthe - sounds like you've been having a very busy time of it helping out your daughter. I hope she'll soon be settled in her new home.

What a wonderful snippet roll you've created for your friend - the birds are charming, and the fabrics are all so deliciously vintage and feminine.

Hi Dorthe!
I loved to see your Snippet Roll, It is so pretty!!!
The birds and lace are gorgeous~ It gives me ideas to
try something like this. (have never made one, not sure how : )
I really like the layers of fabric and laces, and the words
are lovely and encouraging. Take care, Karen
