Hello and thanks for visiting my site. My name is Theresa and I am the little bird making things here on a property in rural New South Wales, just outside Canberra, in Australia.
I design and sew accessories. Bags, purses, wallets, and pouches for adults and children, bibs, blankets, change mats and other baby accessories, and all sorts of other creations that are requested or dreamed up. Why? In part because I have a fabric addiction and I need a way to justify it, but mainly because it satisfies my creative urges, and allows me to express myself in a way that fulfills me.
I have lived all over Australia, and in a few other places, and was previously employed as a lawyer. These days I am fully employed raising my 3 children, and running this little business, and adjusting to life on a small farm. One of my children has special needs, so I often write about the challenges and victories that we have there, and the impact it has on my mental health, as well as that of the rest of the family. I am a strong believer that sharing information is the best way to remove the mystery and stigma around mental health, so that those suffering might seek support and assistance.
I hope that you enjoy the musings of this little bird as I move through the various adventures in my nest.
