Hi All! I'd like to introduce you to my buddy, Miz Beanwirth. Cute, isn't she? She's made out of socks that are cut up and sewn together, along with various items for her ah, wardrobe. Then there is the acrylic paint she insists on using for lipstick. I mean, like she needs any in the first place, right? But no matter what, she is really all heart, as you probably noticed. Anyway, she'll be hanging out in the spotlight for a while on my blog, so I thought I'd let ch'all know who you were lookin' at. She's pleased to meet you, too!
I've been sewing and creating all my life! There's nothing like a pile of beautiful fabrics in bright colors to get my imagination churning.
I live in Upstate New York with my husband, our dog Henry, and 2 spoiled cats. I have 3 adult children and 2 adorable granddaughters. During the day I'm a Social Worker, assisting parents and kids with mental illness. It lets me use my Coaching skills that I earned through CoachU, always valuable. I love to read, sew, paint and collect books and vintage linens. I've got a special place in my heart for Anthropologie (shoes and sweaters, in particular) and Country Living British Edition, Mollie Makes, and Selvedge magazines. I'd describe my personal style as eclectic/romantic.
