Teddy Bears Picnic

This week I'm taking the gorgeous little bear, that lovely Teresa sent to me, on the picnic.  I've named her Elsie and she has become firm friends with Dolores, so they are both coming on the picnic this week. They are also bringing a tiny little brooch bear, named Herbert, who was made by one of my friends, Jacqui.
 Share a Bear or Softie
Do you have a bear, softie or doll you would like to share with us.  Why not bring them on the picnic.  It's very easy - just pop your details into Mr Linky and play along.

  Fabulous Free Things
White Rabbits time is rapidly approaching again so this week I set out to find some cute free patterns, generously designed and shared by our fellow bloggers, featuring rabbits.  Here's what I found.

 This sweetie-pie at Free Patterns.com
Adorable little Honey Bunny HERE at Crochetville
 And this little cutie pie at Suse RevoluzZza
 I couldn't leave this one out.  It's not a free one, but the pattern is only $3.50 and it is so cute and made me smile -a lot.  Check out the details HERE 

I couldn't leave this little section of this post without mentioning gorgeous Shell at Raspberry Rabbits.  Pop over and read about the adventures of her dear little bunnies and share in free patterns, giveaways and all manner of delightful posts.

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.
