Teddy Bears Picnic

I love teddy bears and I love teddy bear buttons too. Here are a few of my favourites.  
Imagine how small their picnic basket would have to be.

 Share a Bear or Dolly.
It would be wonderful if you would bring a bear or a dolly or a softie on the picnic. To share in the fun just pop your details into Mr Linky.
Everyone who brings along a little friend this week will get a special collectable Teddy Bears Picnic surprise.

Fabulous Free Patterns
Time to start getting ready for Christmas, so here are some really cute little free patterns which our wonderful fellow bloggers have kindly shared.

One for the knitters - the most adorable knitted holly.  Thank you so much to Julie at Little Cotton Rabbits.
And one for the cross stitch enthusiasts from Kreinik Manufacturing Company who make wonderful threads.
North Pole Christmas has a wonderful collection of Snowman patterns.  This one is really worth checking out.
And Bronwyn at Red Brolly has the most gorgeous stitchery which she is kindly sharing.

Please consider helping the Free The Bears Fund.
Extend your Christmas cheer to the bears
