Thursday's Teddy Bears Picnic with Melody

First I just have to say......GO THE MIGHTY MAROONS....QUEENSLAND WOOHOO!!!! OK now I have that out of my system, some very sweet little friends of mine 'the Gollies' are really looking forward to the picnic with the teddies today. They have their favourite book (which was mine too when I was a little girl) by Enid Blyton and some of their special "Beechworth" peppermints to share. They are all wearing their jackets so they'll be warm enough.
The large golly was made by me and the others have been purchased at various bear shows the tiniest one is 1 inch tall. I love gollies and I loved that story as a child. They're off to see who else is there over at Melody's at http://thehouseonthesideofthehill.blogspot.com/ and then I am off to the sewing room as I have a ton of work to do and a few deadlines to meet.
Happy Stitching,
Michelle
