Hi, Trammy. I think what you're doing is wonderful. Any time you want to post photos, we would love to see what you're doing.
Just today I found the CuddlesUK Knit Bear, which is a lot like the Mother Bear... only a little smaller and all one color.
Here in the U.S. the Fisher House in North Carolina wants toys for children in their hospital. Maybe I'll send some their way. Thanks for the inspirition!
