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!!!

Whoever would've thought that when I clicked the button to start a blog that it would get this far!!!
My first post is here......I didn't even know how to add photos!!!



This is a framed stitchery I bought off Cathy Penton Designs when she was selling off some of her things


and I have a pattern for this that I won't be making up now
together with this Bareroots sewing machine cover pattern to celebrate my 5 years in Blogworld



Just leave a comment here if you would like a chance to win them and I will get JoJo to draw a winner next weekend....

Thanks so much everyone for stopping by and leaving comments over the years
You're all such an inspiration and I love that I have met some of you!!!

Sveiciens bloga 5.gadadienā!
Priecājos, ka pirms pieciem gadiem nolēmi rakstīt savu blogu, un mēs varam priecāties par taviem rokdarbiem, gardajiem un skaistajiem ēdieniem, un būt ar tevi kopā citos tavas dzīves notikumos!
Mūs šķir ļoti liels attālums, bet ar blogu palīdzību esam tik tuvu.

My dear Dzintra! It's been five years for me this past January, so I'm going on my 6ht. I too would have never thought I would have met you, or made all the other important connections through blogging. I adore your blog and your world, your creations and most of all, YOU.

HAPPY CREATIVITY! 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 ...
