Another Introduction

My name is Johoanna and I live in Orange, NSW, Australia. I'm 37 years old and totally addicted to craft. I've been making and creating since I was small. I grew up in a family where my mother crocheted and sewed, my aunt painted, and my granny knitted.

I love using thrift shop finds in my artwork. I'm forever looking for that something special to add to any current and future pieces.

The pictures to the right are examples of some of my skills. I spin, knit, crochet, embroider, and sew. I also loved working with mixed media.
My theme for this swap is "The Goddess Within". I believe that each woman is more talented and more special than we are led to believe from others. For too long we have accepted the place we have been given in society, but it is time to rise up and acknowledge our beauty, and our value.
I am looking forward to working with all the ladies on the swap.


  1. Love your theme.Goddesses abound in Hindu religion and they are a big part of India, only wish people would see the goddess in the women they meet everyday and appreciate them.
    That quilt is beautiful.
