Well it was a busy weekend!! The ACDA's and twin cousins down from Perth to play... AND CHICKIES FOR A WEEKEND STAY!!!!!!!
Elkie had a ball this last long weekend. Their class has a fabulous teacher who hatches chickies out in the room each year and then the kids get to take them home over night if they would like!!
The first night she was awake at 3am asking if it was time to get up and look after the chickies. I said it was still night and we had to go back to sleep but we decided it best to get up and check on the little cuties anyway.....................
I am sooooo thrilled to have Sammi win the ACDA's for' Most Innovative Design and Workmanship Excellence' !!!! I saw the entries and was thrilled by the creativity shown and really though I had no hope this year, so when the box arrive back with Sammi in it ,I was floored to receive this award!!!
Thank you so much to Sandi for all her efforts...amazing lady... and the judges and it was fabulous to see such wonderful pieces entered this year!! WOW!!!
I made my first bear in 1995 and in the same year I began designing my own and formed Lombard Bears Australia. I combined bear making with my 3 jobs for three years and then my (now) hubby and I made the big move out of the city and took on a 7-day a week business...end of bear making for about 9 years! I had just started getting back into bears after having my daughter Elkie, when I saw a felting demo in August 2008 and my mind was off at a million miles an hour and hasn't stopped since. I Love that needle felting allows you to sculpt in fibre! I am loving being back into bear making and boy what a different world it is today compared to when I started...WONDERFUL!!!
