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

OPAM here once again
This time I have a little Pin Cushion
Stitchery designed by Bonnie Sullivan for Girls Day In The Country 
We were each given a pattern and could make anything we like out of it for a Swap and this was my contribution

My poor old Heat Bag had developed a hole so a new Parisian inspired cover was made for it

3 little handy bags

One of which came in handy for the Pin Cushion

And finally a little Needlebook which was part of a Kit for GDITC

I decided to put a cross on the thread part of the bobbin

page in 'Needlebook'

and a little signature and date on the back of the Needlebook

Thank to Sweet Peg and Kris for hosting OPAM again this month!!!

`OPAM (One Project A Month) 2017.......I have joined again

After a bit of pondering I have joined OPAM again hosted by the lovely
Sweet Peg and her Partner-in-Crime Kris
Thanks so much Gals for running this again!!!

For February I made a new Heat Bag Cover for JoJo
As you can see above this was sorely needed

When I am out and about and JoJo happens to be with me I ask her to select some Fat 1/4's that she likes and she chose this music one so I thought it would make a perfect cover for her

For the second time since I received them I sewed one of my name labels on to it and I thought it looked pretty cool!!!

Hope I can keep up this year as I have a couple of big projects to do!!!

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 ...
