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, October 2016~

Just one item for OPAM this month

I made this Book Bag for Author Dzintra Sullivan after meeting her a few months ago and seeing that she loved Halloween I thought this quite apt for her as I had the fabric.

I also put on a name label for her *Dzintra* right where I would put mine
Pretty cool I thought seeing she had the same name!!!

Thank You Sweet Peg and her Partner in Crime Kris for hosting OPAM
I know I wouldn't be finishing 1 item a month if it wasn't for them!!!


Last night being Halloween and JoJo was very excited to hand out Treats to Trick or Treaters that may arrive.........they did and we had 32.

Halloween reminds me of when we were little and going to the Cemetery with candles the last Saturday in October and singing to our  
Beloved Ones and Honouring them that night.
Looking back it was a lovely thing to do........

Looking outside

and then back in!!!
What fun she had!!!

Im not posting as much as I am still having trouble with my eyes and headaches and I think the computer is partly to blame however I do still keep up reading blogs!!!

Happy Dzintra xo

What a perfect book bag for Dzintra. You had lots of Trick or Treaters!! Jojos costume is excellent, I'm sure she had a wonderful time. I get headaches from the computer too. I'm just getting used to wearing glasses, hopefully they help.
