Hi. I’m Denise. I’ve been a sewist for over 40 years, jeweler for over 20 years, dabbler in many things like WordPress, Silhouette Cameo, wool (needle-felting, drop spinning, and gnome-making), cooking (gluten-free for over 25 years), orchids, genealogy, arts of all kinds and playing with my grandkids in East Tennessee. Lately, I’ve fallen in love with making purses and hats. I write about pets, people, or anything else that interests me. I hope you’ll be interested too.
Pattern design is also a favorite of mine, whether it be beadwork patterns, new purse patterns or girly outfits for my granddaughter or other littles. Men’s shirts have the best fabric, so they’re great for refashioning. Suits also make great purses. Resale shops are a goldmine!
Follow along with my winding journey in art forms. We may bang on metal, bead awhile, or stitch a seam or two. I always have fun. You can too.
