This blog is all about me......I come here for respite in between caring for JoJo (our Daughter who has Special Needs)......I am addicted to starting new projects......I am becoming a fabric-a-holic... I love to try out recipes... take a beach walk and breathe in that salty blue air......love to have coffee...sip a glass of champagne......read a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

OPAM (One Project A Month)...May


May was quite a productive month (for me) in OPAM!!!


A little pincushion for my Daughter...'Mum I don't have a pincushion'...



so with some leftover fabric from April's OPAM bag for her birthday I quickly made one up......(it took 2 days LOL)...


I entered a Colour Swap at Lydia's Treasures......
My Partner was Annie and I made for her a little Patchwork Travel Pouch...


the inside...


a pincushion...




I had to pinch this pic of Annie's blog as I didn't take one before I sent it...
a needlecase...



and altogthter!!!

Thanks so much Peg and Kris for hosting OPAM......I know I have finished a lot more projects than I normally would have!!!

Now hopefully I will have a Table Runner and my Bars of Gold quilt to show off next month!!!

Happy Weekend Dear Readers......Dzintra xo

Welcome To My World

Hello, my name is Dzintra Ingrid ... have been known as Ingrid and since our Sea Change I have started to use Dzintra ... pronounced without the D ... (but still known as Ingrid, I know, it's confusing ...)

Welcome to my world ... a journal of our Sea Change ... Mum to three wonderful children ... bringing up a daughter with a disability and seeing life through her eyes ... being a new Nanna ... photos ... inspiring quotes ... taking on a cookery course ... the odd recipe ... and trying to get some stitching done amongst all this ...
