I love teddy bears!
I was given my first teddy when I was two years old. "Misha" lived with me for some 17 years. Sadly, he got lost during my parent's house move, when I was away.
Meet the "bear gang", they all live in my workroom. Of course they all have names!
They all found me in various ways, but I specially have a weakness for a teddy sitting on his own in a charity shop.
They are all special, of course; but George, the big brown bear in the middle, is very special, because it was my son who gave him to me.
These two are teddies I made. Brian, on the left, was the first teddy I ever made. I finished him in an one day workshop. I think that is the reason why he has had an expression of surprise ever since!
I made Bruce, on the right, next, to keep Brian company, so he would not feel left out in looking "not quite right".
