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!!!

~Let's Get Stitched, Hobart - 2016~


 Woo hoo I'm off to my first Let's Get Stitched Hobart 2016 hosted by the lovely Fee
Hobart is Australia's second oldest capital city after Sydney

Above and below are some of the many boats moored at Constitution Dock on the Derwent River at Hobart







We were there last in 2008
Above is a pic of JoJo and me (with brown hair)


The famous Seafarers Restaurant the Drunken Admiral


Wonder if they still have that famous Stew!!!


JoJo and Mr Armchair strolling along


Looking out to sea


The delightful Arthur Circus (I think this is the name) at Battery Point......
If not please correct me Tassie girls


A few of the houses at Battery Point




I'll be there to wander the well known Salamanca Markets
There will be a visit to the Salmon Ponds

There will be a visit to 4 Patchwork Shops
and I'm sooooooo looking forward to this

Mr Armchair booked the flight for me last April after saying Go with your Friends
Now he is retired he will be caring for JoJo while I have a mini break and meet some bloggy friends in person and catch up with others
WoooooHoooooo

DZINTRA! Good morning (well, at least on my end!) and a happy post Easter to you! Thank you for coming to visit my blue Easter eggs! Well, I sure could have used my aqua rain boots on Easter; it was raining! But both of us are waiting for the fullness of our seasons. Spring is not quite here as I suppose autumn is not quite there for you yet! Let's have fun my friend. LET'S REJOICE! Our birthdays are coming!

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 ...
