The blue teddy in the seat below, is my mums, he was at first called Bruin, but as children we christened him Ruin, due to his long and hard life! My mum gave him a birthday party probably for his 50th , I think this was when he was given his rather grand seat. My sisters and mums grandchildren came to the party together with our own teddies, and had a proper birthday tea. Its good to do things like that!! The little ted is mine, named Maxi after Max Bygraves (!). He is in severe need of me stitching up his nose, which I must do.

I found this lovely book in the library 'Knitted Pirates, Princesses, Witches, Wizards and Fairies, and then was lucky enough to have it for a Christmas present. I have knitted the body but haven't got around to the stuffing part yet, just starting on the beautiful dress and now the frilly knickers!
