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 to have coffee...sip a glass of a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

~OPAM (One Project A Month) September 2014~

2 small items completed this month
The first above is a pin cushion designed by Natalie Bird of Birdhouse Designs

The pattern is above and is the first item received in a Tilda Club I joined recently
I was determined to start straight away and then finish this little pretty and I hope to continue to do that with all the bi-monthly postings in this Club

Lovely fabric

which included cotton lace and ribbon along with the pattern.

I also completed this little Happy Heart (after it sat around for about 4 years)

and popped in some pip berries

just like the pattern designed by Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched

Thank you Sweet Peg and Kris for organizing OPAM once again this year!!!

I haven't been able to rock around and comment on everyone's blogs lately
Just so busy tied up with having the little Grandies here and JoJo but I do get around and have a quick read to see what everyone is up to.  

Hope all you OPAMer's out there had a great month
Dzintra xo

That pincushion is so lovely!! It's fun that each side is decorated in a different way, and the fabrics are so pretty. I love the heart!!! It looks wonderful with the decorative branches coming out of it!

Such sweet care goes into all of your designs and those of your kind friends. Oh Dzintra, I wish you could see the memories that flash by my eyes when I see your work. I see my mother's crafty designs all over again, and they "hug" me. Thank you.
