This blog is all about me......I come here for respite in between caring for JoJo (our daughter who has a disability)......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) Dec 2012


This time I have 3 little items for OPAM......
The first one is some bunting which I hung facing our dining area




This was a nice easy one all made from printed fabric purchased at Shop Handmade Markets


Next are 2 little pouches......pattern by Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched
One for me and for Asta (no blog)


Very cute Anni style!

Thanks so much Sweet Peg and Kris for running OPAM again this year......I have thoroughly enjoyed being part of it!

That bunting is so pretty, such a clever idea for them to be all printed on a panel like that. Your bags are so sweet, I love the embroidery on the front. It's been great seeing your projects during the year.

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 ...
