Monday Mayhem 17.01.2022 - 2021, the year that was.

Hi all, I almost forgot to post this again. I would normally do this on the first Monday of the year so I'm a little late. 

Firstly, here is a list of the projects that I completed last year. 

43 Comfort Bears (a little short of the one a week that I usurping try to make).

3 blankets (knee rug size) 

2 bunnies

2 bags

1 produce bag

1 drink bottles cosy

1 dog coat

That list is a bit smaller than other years but it has been a bit of a different year. 

I currently have a few projects that I'm working on. They include 2 queen bed size blankets, a cot blanket and a bunny as well as Comfort bears.

Normally I would give you my to-do list but I have scrapped it. I have decided to close my shop and don't need to make anything more for it at this time. I will be trying to sell everything on Facebook so check my pottage over there if you want something that I've made. 

The other thing I usually tell at this time are my targets for the new year (Idon't make resolutions). They are to finish the year with no more projects than I started with (something that I have failed to do most years) and to lose weight (something I have managed to do the last few years, I'm currently 117.2kg).

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

Wednesday WIPs - 11.01.2022

I've not really made a good start to the year, I haven't done my wrap up for last year yet and haven't completed anything but I have started something. 


2022 TCAL Square No 1

I started a Tunisian Crochet ALong that I found on Facebook and this is the first square. The TCAL will have 25 different squares but I will be doing extras as I want to make another blanket for my queen sized bed. 

I still intend to do a wrap up of last year's finished objects and give details of my plans for this year (I don't make resolutions) and hope to have that posted on Monday. 

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

Richard.

Friday FOs - 31.12.2021

Well, it's the last Friday of the yearand I have a finished object to show off. It has taken a few weeks because I was playing Santa Claus for a while but I managed to finish a bear that I started at the end of November, and here it is. 

Comfort Bear No 43 for this year. 

This is my last Bear for 2021 and the last that will go to the doctor's surgery. My CO has asked me to make them and give them to her so that she can send them overseas. I will be using donated yarn and stuffing from pillows so all they will cost me is time. 

I will try and post a summary of all the things I have completed this year and the projects I have yet to complete on Monday. 

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

Friday FOs - 19.11.2021

I have managed to finish another bear this week and here it is. 

Comfort Bear No 42 for this year 

I don't expect to be making many more of these this year as I will be working for the next 4 weeks. 

That's all I have for you for now. Until next time, have a good one.

Friday FOs - 12.11.2021

We have come to the end of another week and it is time, once again, to show off my finished object, and here it is. 

Comfort Bear No 41 for this year 

Another Comfort Bear ready for service. I have a bag full now so I will need to deliver them soon. 

I had hoped to have a blanket finished today but only got the crochet done. I still need to sew in all the ends before I can call it done, so it should be ready for next week. 

That's all I have for you for now. Until next time, have a good one.

Friday FOs - 05.11.2021

After forgetting to post my finished object here a couple of weeks ago and not finishing anything last week, there are a few items I would like to show you this week. 

I will start with the object I finished two weeks ago which is ...

Comfort Bear No 39 for this year. 

Another Comfort Bear ready for service. 

These two objects were finished this week. 

Snuggle Bunny

I made one of these for a lady at church a little while ago and her cleaner saw it and requested one of her own. I was given two weeks to make it and that is one of the reasons I didn't finish a Bear last week. The other reason is an appointment that prevented me from spending the time on Thursday afternoon crocheting as I would normally. 

Comfort Bear No 40 for this year 

I started this Bear last week and only managed to finish it yesterday. 

That's all I have for you for now. Until next time, have a good one.

Friday FOs - 15.10.2021

Another week has gone past and I have managed to finish another bear, and here it is. 

Comfort Bear No 38 for this year 

This Bear will be added to the collection ready to be delivered to one of the local medical clinics at some time in the future. 

That's all I have for this week. Until next time, have a good one.
