~OPAM (One Project A Month) February~



One small item this month for OPAM
'Some Kind of Wonderful' Needle book (a giveaway win from Deb at Frog Cottage Designs) by Anni Downs of Hatched and Patched


Inside the case


The thread specified was Weeks Dye Works Stone Floss which I didn't have
so I looked up the Conversion Chart and used DMC 840 and 3740 which gave a lovely stone/mauve effect.  


And the back.
Thank you again Sweet Peg and Partner in Crime Kris for hosting OPAM once again this year!!!

Hi Dzintra!
Your needlebook is super cute - I like your idea with using the DMC combo for your colour of thread.
I really should make that myself some day!
Bye for now, Anthea

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 ...
