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!!!

~Maree's 6 Item Swap Received~




I joined in Maree's 6 Item Swap earlier in the year and this parcel arrived here this week for me from Helen.......At this stage I'm not sure of Helen's blog!!!


Box of gifts including a little bag for JoJo.....how sweet this was......




A card for JoJo from Helen also
So far she has put the gift under the tree and is being very patient


Unlike me who has decided to open one a day as the suspense is too much!!!


The first one opened is a tree ornie
How cool is this.......a little paintbrush looking like Santa


Next one I opened is 'Sewing Room'


A lovely fat 1/4
Shirt pins
Quilt labels
Pin Magnet


And tomorrow I think I'll do 'Read'

What fun is this!!!!

Thank you so much Helen and also Maree for organizing this fun swap.......wooohooooo!!!

Lovely parcels, and so sweet for Helen to include Jojo. Maybe I could turn some of my paintbrushes into a Santa!

Hi Dzintra,
I'm glad you are enjoying the gifts I sent but I do have a confession.... I didn't make the paint brush Santa,I bought it at a handmade craft expo and couldn't resist it.... wish I had got one for myself now, maybe I need to make one. lol.

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 ...
