Friday FOs - 21.04.2017

Another week has passed and I have managed to complete twp more items. I don't think it would surprise anyone to know that one of those is a trauma teddy.

Small Jug Cover
Number 3 for this set of jug covers. I need to make a couple more at this size and then I will start on some larger ones.

Trauma Teddy # 14 for 2017
Someone this week suggested that calling these bears "Trauma Teddies" is a bit harsh. The suggestion was that, instead of naming it after what it's supposed to help with, we should, perhaps, name it for what it is supposed to do. To that end I have been thinking that they should be called "Comfort Bears" as they are to provide comfort to children going through trauma,

That's it from me for this week. I hope you all have a good week and I will be back next week.

Richard.

Another week means another Trauma Teddy as well as a small jug cover, and here they are.

Small Jug Cover
I need to make a couple more this size before working on some a little bigger.

Trauma Teddy #13 for 2017
My CO has asked for a few bear in Salvation Army colours so you will see a few like this over the coming weeks.

That's it from me for this week. Haooy crafting until next week.

Friday FOs - 07.04.2017

Another week has gone and I have a couple of FOs to show this week, and here they are.

Small Jug Cover
Another Jug Cover to add to the stall. I think I'm going to be working on these for a while.

Trauma Teddy #12 for 2017
I'm still managing to finish one of these each week, even if they are a little later than I would like. This is last week's teddy. This week's still has a way to go before it's finished.

That's it from me for this week. I hope you all have a good one.

Richard.

Friday FOs - 31.04.2017

I have been trying to get this week's trauma teddy finished today but it's still incomplete. I have, however, finished last week's trauma teddy so I can show you that one, and here it is.

Trauma Teddy #11 for 2017
I have tried to do something different with this one but it hasn't quite worked the way I wanted. the shape on the chest is supposed to be a heart. I may try again sometime but I'm not in any hurry.

That's it from me for this week. I hope to be able to get two trauma teddies finished for next Friday. I will have at least one done by then. I also hope to be able to post a Wednesday WIPs post next week, but I won't promise anything.

Friday FOs - 24.03.2017

Well, I missed doing a Wednesday WIP post again this week, and I haven't finished this week's Trauma Teddy, but I did finish something, and here it is.

Small Jug Cover
At my last market I sold the last of my small jug covers. That combined with the fact that I only have one of each of the other two sizes means that I need to make more so other projects have been put on hold for a little while.

I still need to finish this week's Trauma Teddy and will do that some time this weekend so you will get to see it next week along with next week's teddy.

That's it from me for this week.

Richard.

Friday FOs - 17.03.2017

Happy St Patrick's Day to all that celebrate it.

I was a bit slack this afternoon and didn't take a photo of this week's bear while I still had daylight so the photo I ended up with is lightly out of focus, and here it is.

Trauma Teddy #10 for 2017
I'm hoping to have something a bit special for the next one of these. I just have to see if I can pull it off.

That's it from me for this week. My apologies for not showing off my WIPs on Wednesday. I will be back next week.

Richard.

Friday FOs - 10.03.2017

Well, I missed last Friday's post but I have managed to get this one in, so now you get 2 weeks worth of finished objects. Don't get too excited though, the only things I have finished in the last couple of weeks are trauma teddies, and here they are.

Trauma Teddy #7 for 2017
This is the one that should have been finished a couple of weeks ago but only got finished last week.

Trauma Teddy #8 for 2017
This is last week's teddy that I finished last weekend.

Trauma Teddy #9 for 2017
And this is this week's teddy so I am now officially caught up.

I really need to get stuck into my other projects but there just seem to be so many things taking my time away from crochet.

That's it from me for this week. Hopefully I will get my act together and have more to show off next week.

Richard.
