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) - August


Phew, not only is August flying by this whole year is flying by with Spring here tomorrow!!!

5 Book Bags this month along with 3 Mug Rugs


This Book Bag has been gifted


Along with this one


This one I have kept and put into it a book I read for a Book Challenge
The Challenge was to read a book with an Author the same name as mine and I found
 Dzintra Sullivan


Another bag and this time I put some Harry Potter ribbon on


Perfect for this book!!!


And from this bundle of Fat 1/4's (Notting Hill by Robyn Randolph) I made some Mug Rugs
I've taken to lately Make 1 Make 2 when I can and this totally works


It worked so well I made 3

This one was a special one and was gifted to my friend Asta for her birthday

Hello Dzintra,

Hope you enjoyed your holiday. Your book bags are just so lovely especially love the tree fabric. Have you read the book "Love Anthony" by Lisa Genova, a great read.
Enjoy the rest of the weekend.

Happy days.

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 ...
