Hi, and welcome to Anything Worth Doing! I’m Audrey, and I started this blog with one goal in mind;  I wanted to learn to make lasting things in a disposable world.

Why? Well, somewhere around 2011, I went shopping for throw pillows for our home, and found myself thoroughly ticked off about the price of a basic pillow cover without any special decoration. So, basically, I decided to teach myself embroidery so that I wouldn’t have to pay for throw pillows.


In 2012, my husband and I bought a 100-year-old house in East Tennessee. We now have a two year old and two old lady dogs. We live in and maintain our historic home and want to learn to make the things with which we fill it. 

This is a blog about learning to recognize and value craftsmanship, authenticity, and creativity. We want to be lifelong learners- so join us!


This is me…I’m watching you, journey.

    Okay, I’m going to love your blog!!!

    • Wait, you’re a Stierwalt? I should have known! I saw that Katie was friends with you, but I didn’t even think. My grandma and grandpa were best friends with Bob and Dee. I grew up playing in the Stierwalt barn. Yay for making blog friends!!!

      Yes I sure am!! My dad is the youngest of Bob & Dee’s kids and my parents live on the farm where the barn was (it burned down a number of years ago 😕). Craziness!!

  2. I know :(. I actually saw it burn from our farm. It was quite a blaze. I miss Bob; he was the sweetest man. Well, I look forward to following you on your blog and meeting you when we come visit Illinois this winter!!
