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......and Mogo Melodrama~


Just a little item this month for OPAM
Above are fabrics JoJo chose together with a Santa button to make the pattern below


'The Christmas Goose' by Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched


She specified just the Santa......no ric rac but Christmas ribbon was okay and the lining the same as the outside


All filled with treats for our Christmas in July dinner that we had last weekend in June!!!


And the reason not much stitching happening and the Christmas in June dinner
I'm involved in a Melodrama at Gold Rush Colony in Mogo
The Gold Rush Colony is a fabulous 1850's  Theme Park depicting life as it was in the early Australian Gold Rush Days and I just love going there!!!
Here I am above warming up by the huge open fireplace there





Flyer for the Melodrama
Did Joe Flanagan hit the jackpot?
Lots of Sing-a-longs......and it's all so much fun!!!

The Melodrama opens this Saturday and for the next 2 Saturdays for a matinee and then a final performance on Saturday 27th July in the evening


All held in the Digger's Rest Tavern
I'd swear you were back in the Wild West

Kādi tev Ziemassvētku noskaņās darbiņi un pasākumi.
Bet mums siltas ar dziesmām un dejām pildītas dienas - jo sākušies Dziesmu un deju svētki Rīgā. Es arī turp došos, lai gūtu kādu kripatiņu no svētku prieka.

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 ...
