Well I'm on the final stretch of getting ready to leave for Australia where I will be teaching for the Victoria Bead Society as well as venues in Hobart and Cessnock. The trip will be longer then my average teaching engagement, with 4 weeks away from home and from family, friends and Miss Maya.
I have no doubt that I will make lots of new friends in Australia, but I'm sure there will be moments of missing home as well.
Wanting to make sure I had the 'home' connection, friend Susan made me this owl, fondly named 'Little Hoot' to travel with me.
The blue one on the right is mine! His companion will live at the shop waiting for little hoot's return.
Look for photos of Little Hoot as he travels with me through Australia.
