Hi everyone!

Thank you so much for the wonderful response so far! My Teddy heart is so filled with joy that I am afraid it may burst a few more stitches on a weakened seam somewhere!

I have been in contact with the Teddy Bear Clinic and they are just as excited. Hopefully I will be able to go through for a visit sometime this week  to show you around...

Here are some photos MrsC found of a 'bear repair' that her and her friend carried out on quite the biggest bear I have EVER seen... clearly I was not the first bear to have surgery performed on him by MrsC!

Poor, poor thing! Years of children bouncing all over him have left him in an un'bearable' state...

Amazing what a little bit of love and thread can do... That is MrsC's special friend, MrsF sitting on his lap, so you can see just how BIG he is. Every time MrsC has a harebrained idea to help others, MrsF is the first to jump in and help. (Thanks MrsF)

It has been exactly two years and three days since that photo was taken, it will be interesting to see what state he is in by now! That is one HUGE pair of dungarees that MrsC made!!! :stare:
