About Brown Bird Designs

Hey there, I am so happy you are here- i’m Annelies

AKA Elisabeth DeMoo. I am a craft-o-holic. Something inside of me drives me to create and I embrace it. My list of projects in progress is always above 10. About three years ago, I started down a path that might take me to my major goal: becoming a fabric designer. This path has led me to creating this blog. I didn’t know very much about blogging, but I jumped in with both feet. Although my main focus is on quilting, I also love creating jewelry, taking photos and cooking. I try to keep my blog up-to-date but with two jobs it gets a little tough So please understand if I go MIA, I will be back soon!
