- Anna writes :As the whole country started to put Teddy Bears in their windows I felt a little left out as my teddy bears left home years ago.
My passion is Māori weaving so I wove the attached bear from harakeke growing in my garden. When I created him, Easter time was approaching. I made him so that an Easter egg could be put inside him and he sat in our front window receiving many smiles.
Weaving has been my saviour and I was so grateful for the ability to create during lockdown, something that appeared to bring joy to many.
