Teddy Bears Picnic.

Today is a picnic day here at the House on the Side of the Hill and dear little Dora is coming along.

I found her sitting on the bedside table waiting for me to wake up, that's how keen she is to have her turn on the picnic. She was made for County Threads quite a few years ago.  I still love her.
Share a Bear or a Softie
Do you have a dolly, a bear or a softie who would like to come on the picnic today.  Please pop your details into Mr Linky and join in the fun.

Fabulous Free Things
 Again I've been hunting around the web for some fun free patterns. A picnic in a field of flowers is always a delight and I thought that with Mothers Day coming up, some flower patterns would be a good idea.  So here goes.
 A lovely felt flower pin from the very talented Laura 'Lupin' Howard at Folksy.  Laura gives detailed step by step instructions for this very achievable project.
 There's a mini felt flower bouquet brooch at Free Felt Patterns and Tutorials.  This is a brilliant site with lots and lots of wonderful free patterns,
including this Dahlia felt flower too.

I fell in love this this amazing knitted felted vase, which I found here at The Daily Knitter.  If you like to knit this is a fabulous site to visit.

As I've said before, we are so lucky that there are all the wonderful generous designers out there who share their patterns with us.  Thank you to each and every one.

Can You Help?

 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.
