Friday FOs - 13.01.2017

As promised, I have managed to finish another Trauma Teddy, and here it is.

Trauma Teddy #2 for 2017
I still haven't unpacked my other projects but I'm sure I will have something to show next Wednesday. Until then, keep stitching.

Wednesday WIPs - 11.01.2017

I still haven't unpacked my projects after moving just before Christmas but I did find some cotton and I need to make some shopping bags so I figured I would make a start.

Shopping Bag with Pouch.
It doesn't look much yet but will start to look like a bag with a few more rows. I plan on making quite a few of these and may even use some myself just so that people get to see them being used.

That's it from me for now but I won't point you to the links in the sidebar as I'm not sure which actually go anywhere. I will be updating them as soon as I find some suitable links. I should have another Trauma Teddy finished before Friday so check back then to have a look at it.

Friday FOs - 06.01.2017

It's the start of a new year and one of my aims this year is to make one trauma teddy every week. With that aim in mind, here is the first trauma teddy for 2017.

Trauma Teddy #1 for 2017
I do aim to finish other things but I have to finish unpacking first.

That's all I have for you this week, but I'm sure others have something to show off, so check out the links in the sidebar to see what they have made.

Richard.

ETA: It looks like I may have to look into those links in the sidebar a little closer as they don't appear to go where I thought they would go. It may be that people have stopped hosting link parties.

Wednesday WIPs -

Another week has gone by with only a little progress. Here are the projects that I have worked on this week.

Story Time Blanket
I have actually gone backwards on this one. I discovered a mistake that I had made quite a way back and it was a little too obvious and the only way the fix it was to frog back and redo it.

Tunisian Spiral Blanket
I took a friend to the doctors the other day and took this with me so I would have something to work on while I waited. I got through another couple of colour changes.

Trauma Teddy
I wouldn't normally show this one at this stage but I will be moving house soon and don't ecpect to finish this this year. Lots of packing, moving and unpacking will mean that I will be too busy.

I did work on Block #23 in the Moogly CAL this week but forgot about it when it came time to take photos. Hopefully I will be able to show you the completed block next week.

As usual, check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have been working on.

Wednesday WIPS - 23.11.2016

I'm still struggling with getting any crochet done this week. I haven't worked on a Trauma Teddy at all, so don't expect me to post anything on Friday. I have managed to get a little bit done so here are the projects that I have worked on this week.

Story Time Blanket
One of my students decided to start a more complex project last Friday so I had to spend a bit more time helping her and didn't get much done on this one.

Moogly CAL Block 22
I managed to get this block finished but haven't worked on the latest block yet. I will still be making blocks when everyone else has finished putting their blankets together.

Tunisian Spiral Blanket
I was at the dentist today so I pulled this one out and did a bit while I was waiting. Unfortunately, I didn't get a lot done because I ran out of the pink I was using.

That's it from me for now. Be sure to check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have been working on.

Friday FOs - 18.11.2016

Well, I did manage to finish this week's Trauma Teddy as well as the one I started two weeks ago, so you get to see two Trauma Teddies this week. Here they are.

Trauma Teddy #30 for 2016

Trauma Teddy #31 for 2016
I'm quite a bit behind the one a week target I set myself when I first started these. Maybe I will manage that next year.

As usual, check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have made.

Wednesday WIPs - 16.11.2016

Well, I'm trying to get my crochet act together and have been a little more productive this week. I have lots of photos but only three projects, and here they are.

Story Time Blanket
My students didn't need as much help this week so I was able to give this project a little more of my time and made pretty good progress on it.

Butterfly Square - side one
Butterfly Square - Side 2
I managed to finish another butterfly and took photos of all the butterflies I have made so far.

8 Butterflies- side 1
8 Butterflies - side 2
Moogly CAL - Block 22
I almost got this block finished, just a little bit of sewing to be done.

That's it from me for this week. I have finished the Trauma Teddy that I started two weeks ago so I will be able to show that one on Friday and I should have this week's done by then also, so check back then to have a look at them. In the meantime, check out the links in the sidebar to see what other people have been working on.
