Friday FOs - 01.12.2017

I remembered to take photos today but almost forgot to post them. Here are my finished objects for this week.

Shopping Bag with Pouch (#4 for 2017)
Shopping Bag in Pouch
I keep thinking that I should make some of these for myself and use them when I go shopping as a sort of advertising of my wares, but I already have plenty of reusable shopping bags.

Trauma Teddy #47 for 2017
Now that I have caught up with my production of these bears I'm going to do my best to keep up. Something that is going to be a little harder now that Craft'n'Cuppa is finished for the year. I guess I'm just going to have to set aside time each week to sit a crochet without distractions.

That's it from me for this week. I think I should also resurrect my Saturday posts and let everyone know how I'm tracking with the tragets that I set at the beginning of the year. I also need to update my to-do list. I'm sure I have more to add to it.

Until next time, have a good one.

Richard.

Wednesday WIPs - 29.11.2017

I thought it was about time I posted some progress shots, so here they are.

Appliques
I'm half way with this project having completed 4 ladies and 4 butterflies. I will be starting on the next set tomorrow.

Butterfly Square side 1
Butterfly Square side 2
I have been to a couple of markets recently so I got this one out to continue.

Rose Corner to Corner Pixel Square
I decided to get this one out at the last market.

Shopping Bag with Pouch
I kinda need to make a few of these as I seem to be able to sell them.

Tunisian Spiral Blanket
I have spent a bit of time in waiting rooms lately this has been added to. A soon as I have squared it up I will switch to black and go around once more.

That's it for the WIPs this week. I have at least one itme finished and, if I remember, I will show it off on Friday.

Friday FOs 24.11.2017

I have finally caught up with my production of Trauma Teddies. What that means is that I managed to finish two teddies last week and one this week and don't have any more that are partly finished. I have also managed to finish something else. Here are all the items that I have finished this week.

I still have quite a few projects that need to be finished and I will get to them eventually, but there are a few things that I need to get done as a priority.

If I remember, I will post some progress photos soon and you will be able to see that I have been working on quite a few things. until next time, have a good one.

Friday FOs - 10.11.2017

I have manaed to finish two bears this week, which means that I have almost caught up. I just have this week's bear to finish now. Here are the bears.

Trauma Teddy # 42 for 2017
Trauma Teddy # 43 for 2017
That's it for this week. I hope to have more next week but we will have to wait and see. Until next time, have a good one.

Friday FOs - 03.11.2017

I managed to finish one of the two bears that I had started last week, and here it is.

Trauma Teddy # 41 for 2017
I still have the makings of the bear that I started last week sitting next to me, as well as the bear that I started this week. Hopefully I can get past all the distractions and get them finished for next week.

Until next time, have a good one.

Friday FOs - 27.10.2017

I am still having trouble getting my act together as it has been four weeks since I last posted. Not only that, I have only finished three bears in that four weeks, and here they are.

Trauma Teddy # 38 for 2017
Trauma Teddy # 39 for 2017
Trauma Teddy # 40 for 2017
I still have the makings for two more bear sitting next to me as well as several owls, a few blankets and a number of other projects that have moved from WIP status to UFO status. I will get to them eventually.

That's it from me for now. If I mange to get my act together there will be more to see next week. Until the next time, have a good one.

Friday FOs 29.09.2017

I thought it was about time I posted some more finished items, especially since I forgot to do it last week. There aren't any surprises here, it's all bears.

Trauma Teddy # 34 for 2017
Trauma Teddy #35 for 2017
Trauma Teddy #36 for 2017
Trauma Teddy #37 for 2017
I'm not quite caught up with these yet as I have this week's teddy sitting next to me waiting to be finished.

That's it from me for this week. I will post again soon.

Wednesday WIPs - 20.09.2017

I thought it was about time I updated all my followers (is anybody still following me?) on a couple of the projects that I have been working on, other than the trauma teddies that I have been finishing most weeks. Her are a couple of items that I have been working on recently.

Tunisian Spiral Blanket
I have managed to get a bit more of this done just this week as I waited for my podiatrist appointment.

Appliques
Here are the first of 16 appliques that I have been commissioned to make.

That's about it for my WIPs. There are a couple of other things that I have worked on since my last post but I hope to be able to show them finished soon.

Richard.

Friday FOs - 01.09.2017

Well, I'm still as forgetful as ever. I took photos last Friday and forgot to post them, so you get two weeks of FOs this week, and here they are.

Trauma Teddy #31 for 2017
Trauma Teddy #32 for 2017
Trauma Teddy #33 for 2017
Three mor trauma teddies ready to be distributed and one more under construction. I'm struggling to catch up with the one per week target that I set at the beginning of the year, but I'm not far behind.




Progress on my WIPs has been a bit slow due to having a vouple of extra students to teach on Friday mornings and having been commissioned to make appliques. Once I get working on the appliques I will be getting photos so you will get to see them.

That's it from me for now. Until next time, have a good one.

Richard.

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).

Richard.

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.
