Teddy Bears Picnic

Feel like coming on a Teddy Bears Picnic. Well today's the day...

Share a Teddy Bear
Many years ago I was a Shopping Tour Hostess (one day I'll make your hair curl and tell you some anecdotes) and most weeks we visited a gift-ware importer who sold these adorable little figurines which were made and hand-painted in Scotland. I bought quite a few.  I just love the detail in each piece.
This is the largest one and it is only 3" long.
Do you have a teddy, softie or dolly to share.  Please put your details into Mr Linky and we can all take a look.   

A Free Pattern
This weeks free pattern is a little friendship quilt. You could use it on a dolly's bed, as a table topper or hang it on the wall.  You can get the pattern HERE.  And the instructions HERE.  I was going through my suffolk puff phase when I designed it, but I think I'd substitute hexie flowers if I were to re-make it now.

Next week's pattern will be a matching chain of felt teddies which are also buttoned together with friendship.

Teddy Bear & Softie Bloggers

  I've got some fabulous blogs featuring the most wonderful bear and softie makers to share this week.

Please Consider Helping

If you are an animal lover please consider supporting the Free The Bears Fund.  I do and it makes me feel good to know that I am helping to give the bears in various sanctuaries around the world a safe, peaceful and happy existence.

PS to those who are waiting for their Share a Bear pressies to arrive, sorry I haven't had a chance to get to Gail B's yet, where I will buy your presents.  Don't worry I haven't forgotten, just running behind time.
