CLaRicE iS oN heR wAY

Hi Everyone, this is Clarice, hot off the press from the indomitable Jill Maas.  Adorable with her pointed elfin ears, turned up boots and gorgeous wings.  
Included in the pattern are many diagrams with detailed instructions. 

'Clarice is a forest dweller, her job is to care for the trees, vines and bushes that tangle and live together to form the thick forest. She loves playing amongst the huge roots hiding down dark holes then climbing into the canopy and swinging on the vines, with the bright sunlight peeping and dancing through the leaves. But her most favorite  time is when the rain pours down amongst the trees to the forest floor, causing wonderful slippery mud, water falls and filling the streams into gushing rivers, it's like skiing and rafting at the same time.
Clarice is fun of energy, hardly ever sits still and can never be found except at meal times

Patterns should arrive at The Kingdom of Stuff any day - $15.00 inc post.

Sorry to have missed the Dorrit Black exhibition recently held at the Adelaide Art Gallery.  Fancy being single, owning a car and travelling South Australia in the early 1900's.  Dorrit didn't follow what was expected of women then - and her work wasn't generally accepted until after her death.  Dorrit traveled the Flinders Ranges - painted the Port Germein Gorge, Port Lincoln etc - a pioneer of modernist art and a unique pioneer of women's independence.  View more of her work at
