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!!!

~OPAM...(One Project A Month).....March~


March OPAM already and one small item to add





First of all JoJo spotted some 'Hoot' fabric at 'Cottage on the Hill' at Nundle



I thought I would make her a pillowcase for the upcoming Winter, something quick and easy


I thought I was being very resourceful here as I cut up an old linen sheet for backing for the quilting!!!



And tada.....here 'tis.....first the front and the back or any way you like it


 Dear JoJo was soon happy to see this made up for her
and so quickly too.....within a week of purchase.....pretty good for me!!!

Thank you Sweet Peg and Kris for hosting OPAM again!!!

Good evening, Dzintra! I can see that Jojo is totally stoked with JOY! I do remember the joy I had when my mum would whip up something fun for me. And the quilting.....that is always a joy for me to witness someone like you with nimble fingers and PATIENCE!

Enjoy a snuggly, cozy autumn evening dearest friend. HEY! Our birthdays are coming!

Hello Dzintra,

The perfect photo of JoJo and her pillowcase. Love the fabrics so cute especially love the monkey one. Using old fabrics as a backing would make it lovely and warm for Winter.

Happy days.
