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!!!

The first is a Kit for an Armchair Caddy above with some of the fabrics required......tape.......buttons and a couple of other little goodies


Coming together

All done and looking good next to some flavoured coffee I received for Christmas off my Mum



And the other one is my  little Parisian Purse I showed off over here


So pleased I have 2 items this month
Now I better get cracking on my next Tilda project

Good morning sweet seamstress! LOVE the tiny work of embroidery, and lately, I've been having a hankering to try it again...I better start up sometime soon because my eyes are slowly losing their strength!

HAPPY DAY! 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 ...
