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!!!

~OPAM (One Project A Month).....March 2014~




How quickly does OPAM come around!!!
For March I have completed 2 small items
The first is a Needlebook designed by Lynette Anderson which was used for a Friendship Swap at Girls Day in the Country hosted by Kerry







I even used my machine to do a decorative stitch to hold the felt down to the lining!!!


My DD asked me to knit up a 'Snood' from the pattern below and she will finish it off herself
Looks like it will be pretty warm too!!!


Thank you to Sweet Peg and Kris for hosting OPAM again this year!!!

My poor laptop (Pearl) died on me and I haven't been able to get around and comment to everyone and read blogs
Mr Armchair came to the rescue and now I have a new 'Magical Pearl' 
I call it magical as I was just so lucky I had copied everything early March and was able to transfer it all across to the new Pearl......
A good reminder to me to keep everything updated regularly!!!!!!

Happy Stitching......Dzintra xo

How happy I am to see your posting again my friend! And our little Pearl pooped out? Oh dear! But you are borrowing another computer? I was so glad to see you had come to visit me! Your projects are always so well made, but most of all, thoughtful pieces that I know are keepsakes for many a friend. HUGS TO YOU and wishes for a lovely autumn dearest Dzintra! BISOUS! Anita

WOW! Love the finishes - and the snood is striking. I'll have to see if I can find a pattern and make some as gifts -

Tik jauks motīvs adatu maciņam. Un adījums būs skaists, bet vai pie jums būs tik auksti?
Labi labi darbojas jaunais dators!

Wyour needle case is so sweet, love the main fabric, gives it a beautiful vintage look. I couldn't get the snood photo, but sounds interesting.

I always enjoy seeing your stitcheries, the little needle book is so sweet. That snood does look warm and cosy, are you tempted to make one for yourself as well? Happy new computer!! What a good reminder to do a backup.
