~ Vale - Inesa ~




It is with great sadness that I write this post...
My Friend from Orange, Inesa, has passed away...
Even though I haven't seen her for a few years I did think of her often

I first met her at The Owl's House.......a lovely little Sewing Shop in Bathurst back in the 1990's when I heard her say her name to the shopowner and of course it caught my ear as it was a Latvian name......
We started chatting there and then and I regularly saw her while we lived in Bathurst at that time...

Inesa was a very talented Craftslady and I remember when she bought her knitting machine and made me some woolen track pants......
Above is a pic of one of the trackies with her Nifty Label on it....


and here are both pairs......


For my 40th birthday she bought me these pottery items above
How treasured all these things are to me now as I don't have a photo of Inesa handy
I think I have one in a box somewhere
If I ever do come across one I will post it up


May the road rise up to meet you
May the wind always be at your back

May the sun shine warm upon your face
And rains fall soft upon your fields
And until we meet again
May God hold you in the palm of His hand

Inesa leaves behind her Husband Paddy, Amanda, Kevin and Aimee



Rest In Peace dear Inesa......I will miss you
Love Ingrid  xoxoxoxoxoxox
 (as she knew me before I started to use my Latvian name)

Jūtu līdzi tavās bēdās un skumjās, no draudzenes atvadoties.

Oh my dear, I am so sorry to hear this. I don't know what I would do if a dear and near friend left me. That has not happened yet.

Hugs my sweet Dzintra....keep those items close by. I still have several things my mother made me and I can never ever part with them. Anita

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 ...
