'Alabaster'
With a Steam Punk Attitude!
After standing for some time, surveying all the 'trappings' of her life, the light and the dark, Alabaster - the pure of heart- decides to take what was good from her past into her future, and to let go of what she no longer needs to hang on to. She will stand firm on her traditional foundation, but always looking forward, strengthened and fortified by her inner attitude, a freedom of spirit that she can pin her hopes on!



This is my interpretation of a Steam Punk Doll that I have put forward as an exhibit in the up-coming Steam Punk Exhibition to be held during the Victorian Celebrations held in Oamaru in November.  She is actually a pincushion!

Interesting process making this, keeping to the elements I was restricted to, but creating some artistic licence with ideas that just popped into my head.  I liked making up the 'play on words' that described what she was symbolising - tomorrow as it used to be!

This is Jackie's delightful interpretation of Jill Maas pattern for Maggie!  We have fun with Angels and other little beings in the making, in our group!

What's this?

Who are you gonna be?


This is Jeans' wonderful interpretation of a Herero woman and child. So graceful, colourful and tender!
 Jean put so much time and effort into this beautiful work of art she created and we are all very impressed with her results!
