Despite popping in and out of the intercal site for quite some time, I only discovered Teddy Talk this week! I guess it's because I'm usually so focussed on the lovely fur....lol.
My name's Helena, I'm from the UK and have been making bears for nearly two years (gosh, that long already....!). I've enjoyed browsing the forum this week and already know a few of you from other groups *waves to the familiar faces*, so I'm really looking forward to joining in!
Hi Amanda - I know Stoke well! It's a small world, lol.
Hi Paula! Yes, I found my way here at last! Thanks for the welcome.
Deb, my name is pronounced Heleeena (but I answer to most things, hehe). I've met lots of Helen-a's, one Hel-ay-na, but not many Heleeena's....it gets confusing. Nice to meet you!
Thanks so much to everyone for the warm welcome!
I'm SO flattered, Sandi, that you recognised Clara. I had so much fun making her and plan to use the spiky mohair again sometime.
You're right Jenny, Conventry isn't far at all! I love your bears btw, such cute little faces.
Amy - please tell me I'm not the only one who dreams about mohair....ok, so it's just me then....
I'm sending you a big Southern California Welcome!!! I'm new to this forum also and I'm having a wonderful time learning and making new friends. This site really is addictive!
P.S. I almost forgot to add: Your bear is adorable!!! I'm going to check out your website to see more.
Another big welcome from another Brit, I'm from Buckinghamshire.
You will love it here chatting with all the wonderful members and be amazed at all the wonderful help they so freely give.
BE WARNED this board is as addictive as bear making.
Welcome to the board!!:D
Our paths have crossed before actually, you kindly told me where you got the lovely smokey miniature bear fabric when you had the most ADORABLE bear on ebay made in it!!;) Thanks again for that by the way!!
Your avatar bear has the cutest expression - reminds me of my brother's 10 week old puppy!!
We look forward to chatting more soon!!! Enjoy!!!
