~OPAM (One Project A Month) June 2015~


For this month's OPAM from this fabric by Robert Kaufman that I have had sitting around for a while 



I made up 3 handy little bags
One  I have given as part of a gift and now I think I will keep the other 2 for myself for my trip
Not long now......8 weeks and 5 days

Thank You Sweet Peg and her Partner in Crime Kris for hosting OPAM
I'm so pleased that I can get something done every month

Much Thanks to all my Fellow Bloggers out there for reading my little blog and commenting
I'll be a bit slow getting back as I'm getting over root canal therapy (ouch)

Happy Stitching.......Love Dzintra xo

Hope you'l be feeling better very soon, I am having the same on Friday :-(

In the meantime, getting on with some sewing, trying to take my mind off it!

The fabric you chose is lovely, what a long way we have come from the ditsy prints of the 70's!

Hello Dzintra,

The perfect fabric for your bags, not long to go before the big take off. Hope the tooth and its surrounds are healing.

Happy days.
Bev.

Good morning precious friend! Thank you for visiting my blog. I hope that one day, your prince will wisk you away to Carmel. You have to see it. You will love the Northern coast of California, but this little one square mile enclave of California will steal your heart away.

Have a splendid day, Anita

Ah.... right near our dear Anita...
Dzintra, dear friend...thank you so much for visiting me...I have missed you!
The chicken recipe was so flavorful, but easy!
And thank you for the 4th of July wishes...we had a light dinner, and then fireworks at the neighborhood park.

I'm sorry to hear of your root canal! I wish you rapid healing...and the trip you are speaking of is Paris, yes? How exciting!

Your fabric here is beautiful and the little bags are darling...I bet you can think of a million uses for them.
I am sending love to you, and more healing wishes.

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 ...
