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 to have coffee...sip a glass of a book......I am Queen of the Armchair and am inspired by all the wonderful blogs out there!!!

~OPAM...One Project A Month, July 2016

Some small items for OPAM this month
First up a little pouch to match the little bag behind
I needed one to put my threads in for an upcoming project and saw I had the same fabric in a small piece of the bag so thought I would use that

Attach a little ribbon and I'm away

After waiting 3 months (sheeeeesh why does it take so long!!!) I attached ribbon and buttons to these two little pouches made in April!!!  These were pouches made of fabric chosen by my GD along with ribbon and buttons and choice of stitching and colour!!! 

Another two little Book Bags
I find the more I have the more I use them
So handy for Books and even Stitching and Patterns!!!

The little label says Au Petit Paris

And the last one a little Fat 1/4 headband for a Friend
Fabric is Everything Autumn by Sweetwater for Clothworks

Thank you so much Sweet Peg and Kris for hosting OPAM this year
I know I wouldn't finish as much without it!!!

Isn't it great to have a group of like-minded friends to challenge us? I too wouldn't get as much poetry done if not for my group members. KEEP GOING my dear! Happy first of August!

You are so good at doing your projects each month. Those little bags are so lovely. It's funny how long it can take us to do the simplest things lol.

Dzintra, HELLO faithful friend! Thank you for visiting Vicki's post to meet me! YES, self taught in everything. Of course, I went to university to obtain my formal education in French but I started off on my own. The other pleasures I indulge in such as music and writing I learned on my own. We must take what we want out of life and start now!

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 ...
