About Me

My photo
With the help of my friends, I co-ordinate "The Craft Group" which is a place for women to gather and do craft! We share a whole range of things, from craft to the small things that matter to us right up to understanding the whole meaning of life! I learn so much from everyone, I thought a blog would be the perfect way to record the memories! The "Plus..." is all about extra bits 'n pieces that I have found and would love to show you. Welcome to our Craft Group. Please feel free to say hi, leave a comment or become a follower! Enjoy!

Shirley's football team

Here is Shirley's football team.
They couldn't decide on the colour of the team but the vivid colours might put the other team off!

Here are some of the team in the dressing room getting ready.

Here is the coach and manager, Shirley.

Her husband Don said this is the final photo before they all ended up in hospital.
No, seriously, they did all go to hospital!
Shirley makes Trauma Teddies for The Red Cross who passes them on to children in hospital or to children who have gone through some trauma. She has made bear after bear which have all gone on to bring comfort to children who I'm sure have benefitted greatly from having somethingone to hug and love. She makes them according to The Red Cross's strict specifications which includes a certain type of face so the kids don't get scared by skewiff expressions! :) Shirley's bears are very friendly looking. (I think Don gets a bit attached to them!)

Here is a pattern for making the bears.  Check with your local Red Cross for their specs.
