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

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 Helena, from down the road in Stoke! You must now be prepared to spend all your time on the computer! This place is addictive. You have probably worked out what wonderful people are here, all the best to you and everyone else who has took the plunge to say hello.

Welcome Helena!  Nice website; adorable bruins!  You'll like it here!

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' gets confusing. Nice to meet you!

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.
