Another one down, one to go.

A hug of new little "Kikos" came into the world after four busy days of workshop fun in Tooradin at Bear Essence. There were some familiar old faces as well as quite a few new ones, and it was lovely to catch up with the girls at the shop. The new premises are wonderful with a great workshop space, and a bakery around the corner when we were peckish, (that could be dangerous).

I have just one more trip this year, I'll be driving down to Hobart on Friday for another Kiko workshop over the weekend. How nice it will be not to have to fly, I think I've seen enough of airports for a while.

I'm actually looking forward to the drive in our "new" car (new for us anyway). It seems to have an awful lot of bells and whistles, and I know it's going to take a while to familiarise myself with them all :)


  1. It looks like you all such great fun. And look at all the new furry friends! It's nice to see all the participants and their work displayed together.

  2. Great photo Linda! I was hoping to pop down while you were here ran out of time.
    Good to see you've upgraded your wheels, I'm sure you'll soon get used to the new "bells and whistles".
    Warmest hugs,
    Sandi @ Bearly Sane

  3. So many happy people and gorgeous bears...wonderful!!

  4. Wonderful! It looks like everyone had loads of fun and finished with a lovely Kiko.

  5. I wish you were paying a visit out here. I would love to make a Kiko. It looks like so much fun to participate in a class.

  6. When I came up with Kiko, I wasn't all that sure how he would go as a workshop as there is so much involved. But all the classes have been a great success and so long as all the prep work is done then they get pretty much finished :)

    Joanne I'd love to visit too! :)

  7. It was a great time again when you came to stay Linda! Looking forward to April 2010....

  8. It sounds like you had a wonderful weekend. The drive sounded pretty appealing to me despite the bad roads!

    As for meditation...the reasons you listed in your comment on my blog are the same reasons I gave...and the very reasons you should try it. Also I learned that a chemical in your brain is released when you meditate and it is very healing. I would give it a try. Just find a guided tape for stress. There are good ones on Amazon.

    Good luck! Hugs, Kelly
