Teddy Bears Picnic

It's a beautiful day, the picnic basket is packed, I've filled the thermos, I've got a quilt for us to sit on, the teddies are in the car waiting to go - so do you feel like coming on a picnic?

 Share a Teddy Bear

Today I thought I'd share this teddy quilt as part of this week's Teddy Bears Picnic.  I received the kit as a birthday gift from John a couple of years ago and made it as a gift for a friend who likes teddies and cake as much as me.
The pattern is by Liz Stanway of Teddlywinks .
I hope you have a teddy or softie to share this week. Just put your details into Mr Linky and we can all share in the fun.

A Free Pattern
I must apologise that Max's pattern is still not up and working.  Hopefully I'll find a way around my technical difficulties and it will appear soon.

Teddy Bear and Softie Sellers on Etsy
I love looking at the beautiful things that clever artists sell on Etsy.  Here are some teddy and softie finds.

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.

I was going to join in on the picnic today but I dropped my camera as I was about to take the picture and it pushed the lense in and I can't get it back out , i am so mad at myself as I don't think it can be fixed :-( ,somedays you get up on the wrong side .
