Friday FOs - 11.08.2017

I have had a reasonably productive week this week. I have manage to finish four bears and a shopping bag, and here they are.

Trauma Teddy #27 for 2017
Trauma Teddy #28 for 2017
Trauma Teddy #29 for 2017
Trauma Teddy #30 for 2017
Shopping Bag #3 for 2017 in pouch
Shopping Bag #3 for 2017 out of pouch
I had hoped to get this week's teddy and the owl finished for today but it wasn't to be so you will get to see them next week if I remember to post.

That's it from me for this week. Until next time, look after yourselves and those you care about.

Richard.

Wednesday WIPs - 09.08.2017

I thought it was about time I posted some progress photos so here are some of the items that I have been working on recently.

Story Time Blanket
This one has seen the most progress this year as I have been working on it during crochet class. Fortunately, most of my students don't need a lot of help so I get plenty of time for this.

Tunisian Spiral Blanket
This one is still my goto project when I'm sitting in waiting rooms. It's almost big enough to start thinking about the border.

An Owl
I would like to make a few of these before my next market, which should be later this month.

That's it for my WIPs this week. All the other projects I have worked on recently are now finished so come back on Friday and you might get to see some more (if I remember to post).

Friday FOs - 04.08.2017

Forgive me followers for I have sinned. It has been 10 weeks since my last post, and I haven't posted a WIP update since the beginning of the year.

I have finished quite a few items since I last posted so this post is going to be quite heavy on photos, mainly of Trauma Teddies, and some of those look very similar to each other as I made several in Salvation Army colours.

Here is everything that I have finished in the last 10 weeks in the order that I finished them.

Trauma Teddy # 20 for 2017
Owl # 1 for 2017
Owl # 2 for 2017
Trauma Teddy # 21 for 2017
Trauma Teddy #22 for 2017
Trauma Teddy #23 for 2017
Trauma Teddy #24 for 2017
Trauma Teddy #25 for 2017
Trauma Teddy #26 for 2017
I have not only been slack with posting, I have also been slack with my finishing. I have the makings for 4 more teddies sitting next to me, so, if I manage to post next week, expect to see more teddies.

Until next time, have a good one.

Richard.

Friday FOs - 26.05.2017

Well, two weeks ago I didn't finish anything so didn't have anything to show, last week I had something finished, took photos, then forgot to post, so this week you get two weeks of finished.

Trauma Teddy #17 for 2017
The first one finished last week and still in Salvation Army colours.

Trauma Teddy #18 for 2017
I started this one on SES volunteer appreciation day so he is wearing orange in their honour.



Small Jug Cover
I think this is #4 for this year.

Trauma Teddy #19 for 2017
This is technically last week's bear but I didn't finish it in time for last Friday. I have started on this week but it's currebtly sitting on the table next to me waiting to be finished.

Jug Cover #5 for 2017
Jug Cover #6 for 2017
With these two jug covers I think I have enough small ones now so I will move onto medium size ones.

I still have a number of items that are close to being finished but they're still packed in boxes somewhere. I got news this week that the college I was studying through has gone into voluntary liquidation so I guess I will have a bit more time to sort things out and find all my projects now.

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

Richard.

Friday FOs - 05.05.2017

After a reasonably eventful week where I managed to lose 1.2kg and a tooth I also managed to finish another teddy. Here it is!

Trauma Teddy #16 for 2017
I might be sticking with these colours for a little while, although some may think a little boring.

That's all I have for you this week, I hope you had a good one, see you next week.

Richard.

Friday FOs - 28.04.2017

Another week has gone by and another Trauma Teddy (or Confort Bear if you would prefer) has been finished, and here it is.

Trauma Teddy #15 for 2017
I'm sticking with the Salvation Army colours with this one and will probably do a few more before I change my colour scheme.

That's the only thing I have completed this week. Until next week, have a good one, bye for now.

Richard.

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.
