~OPAM~ One Project A Month.......June 2013


2 small items for OPAM this month
one is a little pin cushion that has been sitting around for about 2 years waiting for the backstitch and stuffing to be inserted after joining front and back
The other is a fat 1/4 that a specifically bought to use for a headband


The pin cushion took no time at all to put together......the front


and the back


Gorgeous 'dusty' acqua floral La Belle Fleur fabric by French General for Moda



I have a few fat 1/4's I use for headbands but this is actually the first time I have hemmed the edges...... and it looks great too!!!

Thank you to Peg and Kath for hosting OPAM......I love trying to get a little something done each month!!!

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 ...
