Occupation Homemaker and Needlework Designer
Location Donna Liljegren, Blog Est. 3/2009 Wisconsin, United States
Introduction Brynwood Needleworks was established in 1989, and I wrote my first blog post on March 15, 2009. I've been happily married to the same man for 36 years. He is a musician, freelance photographer and the best part of my life. I'm also stepmom to two grown, married sons, and grandmom to three beautiful kids. I love spending time with my husband, our Corgi, Tag and our Lab, Bella, and her daughter, Carly. I'm an avid seamstress, knitter/crocheter, bag maker, and all-around crafter. I lived in Florida with my husband for 17 years, having originally lived in Wisconsin. We returned to our home state in 2017, and now live in a 102 year old farmhouse in the heart of Wisconsin's "Holy Land" (no, really. That's what they call it!). I owned a needlework shop (Stitches in Fond du Lac, Wisconsin), and a cross stitch design business - Brynwood Needleworks - which has morphed into my current creative business and blog. I hope you enjoy exploring my blog. Welcome to my world.
Interests I love bag and wallet making, sewing, knitting, crocheting, and reading. I sold my Harley-Davidson 2003 Softtail Deuce motorcycle in 2016.
