Teddy Bear's Picnic

 For many years I was a shopping tour hostess, taking busloads of ladies on shopping trips around the factory outlets in Melbourne.  We often went to a gift-ware importer and every time we visited I bought one of these little Colourbox Teddies. They are so tiny and are hand painted.  This week I thought this little sailor could come on the picnic.  With the amount of rain we have had there are lots of puddles around for him to sail his little boat.

Share a Bear or a Softie  
Do you have a bear or a dolly or a softie to share with us all.  Please pop your details into Mr Linky and come on the picnic.

 Fabulous Free Things
 My friend Karin loves frogs so there are frogs bounding around on this blog and they are all 
Free Patterns. Thank you generous fellow bloggers and designers for sharing your fabulous patterns.
This hot frog wheat bag makes me smile and is shared by Tania at Myrtle and Eunice.  

How wonderful is this froggie washcloth, which is kindly shared on Frogiez Place and made and designed by Amy-Lynne

One for the crochet queens from mindnsoul.  Thank you Sue, you are so clever.

 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.


  1. Oh Melody, those are the cutest ever patterns. Your little sailor bear is just Darling! He would have followed me home too. LOVE the last bear photo. I SO agree with the cause!
    Thank you for sharing and hosting.
    Have a wonderful week,
    Bear Hugs to you,

  2. Little sailor bear is so cute and so tiny. I hope he doesn't get too muddy in all the puddles.That would have been a very dangerous job seeing all those goodies all the time.

  3. Your sailor bear is sweet and tiny too.
    Hope he has fun playing in the rain puddles.
    See you at the picnic.

So much detail too, just wonderful. Have a lovely Thursday and let's make the most of this delightful warm sunshine today. I have to quilt but will be taking lots of tea breaks to sit outside!
