It's picnic time again and Melissa has popped her baby in her apron pocket to keep her safe while she sets up the picnic on my kitchen table.. She just plain refuses to venture outside - declaring she's from Peru just like Paddington Bear. She says it's quite warm in Peru and she's just not made for the cold.
Share a Bear or SoftieDo you have a bear, dolly or softie you'd like to bring on the picnic. Just pop your details into Mr Linky and join in the fun.
Fabulous Free ThingsWith so much rain the snails are out in force in my garden so I thought they may as well be inside too.
If snails can be cutie-pies then this little pair qualify. You can find them at Knotty's Amigurumi.
A sweet and simple snail softie at the Moda Bakeshop.
Hope Watthanaphand designed funny little Gary the Felt Plushie Snail and he certainly brought a smile to my face. The pattern is HERE at Squidoo
There's a bunch of gorgeous vintage snail embroidery designs at French Knots. It is a wonderful source of free vintage patterns.
Thank you so much to all the talented and generous bloggers who shared these delightful designs with us all.
