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.

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.

Friday FOs - 14.04.2017

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.

Richard.

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.

Richard.
