About me

Gender FEMALE
Location Scandinavia, Wisconsin, United States
Introduction My name is Linda (Mrs. D). I work out of my studio as a free style long arm quilter, and designer of beaded handbags and soft luggage. Since 2007 my husband and I have been restoring a Queen Anne Victorian. The majority of projects are finished after eight years. But, I don't think one ever finishes work on hundred year old home. Our journal http://www.1893victorianfarmhouse.blogspot.com shares our life here in rural Wisconsin with many before and after restoration photos and history of the two previous owner families. We feel honored to repair this old house and give it another hundred years of life. I have lots of hobbies, most of them a result of the restoration project. I love to sew draperies, quilting queen size bed quilts, machine embroider fine linens, re-cover vintage lampshades and collector/restorer of vintage and antique sewing machines. I've become good at repairing interior walls, and scraping, priming, and painting the exterior of the house. Its hard work, but a satisfying journey. I hope you become a follower of my blog. I have lots of photos to share with you. Sincerely mrs.durrant1@gmail.com
