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) - 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
Asta is currently exploring her homeland Estonia in Europe

Thank You Sweet Peg and Kris for hosting OPAM again this year!!!


We've been away for the last few weeks up in Queensland hence no blogging and no comments made but will get back into it soon!!!

Happy Stitching......Dzintra xo

~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!!!

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 ...
