Theresa Mooney's Profile

About

I am a Colorado mountain girl, the wife of a sexy physicist (It's true! No pocket protectors here!), a mother, a Grammy, a sister to 13 siblings, a professional decorative painter by day and a voracious knitter by evening and any time I can get a few spare minutes! The colors and textures of the ever changing beauty that surrounds me here in "my" mountains give me the inspiration to create and the tranquility to assist me in looking “outside the box”.

I love scouting for that special used piece of furniture or accessory, or even clothing and re-energizing it with the use of paint, glazes, metals, fabric, beads and just about anything else I might fancy. I am not adverse to finding something new and revamping it to suit my mood.

My passion for texture and the "itchy fingers" syndrome has led me to knit and felt in between times. My grandmother taught me to knit when I was 7 and soon after, I received my first child's sewing machine with a real needle! I delightedly began to sew a few doll outfits and scarves before graduating to our neighbor lady's treadle machine where I learned to use patterns to create my own outfits. Hunger for more led me to embroidering tea towels, cross stitch, tatting, felting, paper making, woodworking and a myriad of other adventures as I like to call each new skill I learn.

From useful to quirky you'll find something from my collection that pleases you.

I believe that objects made should be used and objects used should be re-made.
