Thursday's Teddy Bears Picnic with Melody & Finally Something Finished...

Well it is said "Sunshine and Showers bring the Flowers" which is certainly true here today. We have had both and had it at the same time here this morning. So that is why our picnic will be on the verandah again!
My little bear "Sunflower" loves wearing her litttle garland and is trying to make the picnic more Sunshiney with her sunflowers and her Snickers bars to share. I made her from mohair and it is the prettiest golden colour. I think she was a project in one of the Bear Magazines but I can't be sure.
Wait a minute is that a  wee "Irish" lad there on the picnic rug with Sunlower???? Sunflower tells me his name is "Ryan" and he wants to join in with the other picnicers......said he will even share is gold......Hmmm! I wonder can you trust the wee folk especially when it comes to their 'pot of gold'. Oh Dear! I hope he is not up to any mischief. Looks too sweet really doesn't he.
I am going over to MELODY'S to see who the other picnicers are this Thursday.

Finally I have finished "Angel of the Teaparty". She is ready to sprinkle icing sugar and chocolate drops all over your cupcakes anytime you are ready. I did end up adding the suffolk puffs and I like them. You will have to excuse the photo as the breeze kept blowing each time I tried to take the photo.
When I imagined this project it was to be a simple little wallhanging but as usual I couldn't leave it alone and I ended up drawing it within an inch of it's life and it took me a little longer than I thought to stitch but I loved creating her and I am glad I didn't rush. Anyway who can I complain to....the designer!  She is not likely to listen. Now all  that is left is writing the pattern..........oohh how I love that bit!

Ya gotta love a suffolk puff or three. I think they are pretty even though I was up past midnight getting them finished. Bit weary this morning I can tell you. Instructions will have to wait 'til I can see straight.
Must fly busy day ahead. Have a great something nice for yourself. Maybe drink a cuppa out of your very best china or wear a spray of your 'best' perfume even though you are staying home. ****You deserve it****
