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!!!

January 2018 finished items

Phew......what a year I am having....
A few health issues have cropped up which have really knocked me around so this is the first time in 9 years I haven't joined OPAM 

I thought I would just cruise along at my own pace sewing wise while we sort ourselves out
Looks like allergy problems are going to take us up to higher ground away from our Sea Change which I thought would last forever......
Some things are just not meant to be............sigh!!!

Plus this means having to sort JoJo out as well for disability programmes........double sigh!!!

Yipppeeeee I did manage to make a couple of small items!!!
Lovely linen with an Eiffel Tower tape (of course) 
Two little soft sunglass cases for the handbag
One for me and one for the gift box (if I don't end up keeping it lol)

along with my cloth tape name......I call it my brand lol!!!

I needed a red headband one day so I went to my Fat 1/4 stash and found this lovely French General one and found a Tutorial and made one........and it was perfect!!!

I'll be back soon........everyone have a beautiful Sunday......Dzintra xo

Sorry to hear that your health hasn’t been the best and that you may have to be on the move. I hope you can get things sorted and life gets back to a new normal. I love your two little finishes. At least you have had some time to sew.

You just have to take one step at a time and sewing can wait while you sort out the rest of it.
Cute finishes.
