Thursday's Teddy Bears Picnic with Melody

Today I have The Raggedies who would love to come on the picnic. Andy has his hobby horse to share so everyone can takes turns. I told Sheila (of Sheila's quilt world) about my Raggedies and she expresssed an interest in seeing them...so here they are. I bought the pattern and the fabric to make them at a gorgeous patchwork shop in Cobram in Victoria while on holidays. I don't know if it's still there but they had beautiful country quilts and dolls and gifts and I was totally smitten with this shop. I remember I bought loads of fabric there too.
Raggedy Ann was a big part of our life as my daughter had one and wouldn't go anywhere without her. She still has her after 32 years. Her husband bought her a limited edtion anniversary Raggedy Ann but I think the original is still the most beloved.
Visit Melody at http://thehouseonthesideofthehill/ to see who else has their picnic rug.

Today is the last day to buy "Shades of Audrey" at the special price of $12.00 AUS
I will have some Christmas in July specials for you once we are into July.
Make some time to do something nice for yourself today,
Happy Sttiching,
Michelle
