The beautiful blue tiger was one of his works .He sadly died this day 16 years ago and I miss him as much as ever.

My name is Diane Kennedy and I have been making collector teddies for 13 years now.I live in a tiny wee village in Scotland and share my home with my daughter (when homefrom uni) four lovely dogs a not so lovely cat and forty fish.
I make as many of my bears from vintage fabrics as I can and they are all oneof a kind.The bears are well travelled and I have them in 14 different countries now.Sadly I dont get to visit.
I would like to share my bear making days with any of you interested and post pictures of my inspirations as well as the bear making proccess and of course the end results.
I am going to attempt my first doll this weekend.I have ahd a lifelong fear of the wee scooters so this is quite an ambition.I always had furry babies in my pram as a child and feel so lucky to get to make and sell them for a living.
The bear on the right was made with 100 year old mohair which was a trial to sew but I like the end result.
I will sign off for today before I make any spelling mistakes.See you soon.
