Dear Viewer,

I am making it a goal to post more content here at my site to let you know what’s going on. I do have an author page on Face Book under my name, and I have my business too which is JoJo’s FUNky threads.

I’ve been working hard on the up-cycled clothing part of my business and it brings me much satisfaction. I will put some pictures here of what I am working on. I’ve found that denim is my preferred fabric medium to work with and with each piece I upcycle, I want to make it like wearable art. The denim jackets I’ve been working on sport my embroidery work.

I’ve also been writing. Today I wrote another poem about snow because this has been the snowiest February on record in our region of Minnesota. We had an early snow in October, 2018 which was joyful, however the elation of the first snow has long since given way to some exasperation as it’s hard now to find places to PUT the snow we must remove.

I thank you for reading this and I will post some pictures of my up cycled clothing and some poetry too.

Fabric Collage

My life has changed since about April or May of 2017 when I got a new sewing machine.  I’ve used to FUNk up clothing, but more importantly, I’ve used it to help make fabric collage. In addition to that sewing machine, I also recently acquired an embellisher which really helps with fabric collage.

Above are pictures of what I am working on or have made in the vein of fabric collage.
