Wibbly Wobbly Juggling Balls

My niece and nephew are finally mature enough to learn how to juggle, this year for Christmas they will be getting juggling sticks and balls. Along with the new goodies they will be getting juggling lessons from my husband and myself.

Inside pics only, it's cold outside :)

Gear it Up

This weekend I went to a steampunk convention. I was a little nervous because I didn't have a themed costume but I pulled out an Victorian Gothic dress, a mini top hat, corset and hoped for the best. I worry too much, everyone at the con was super sweet and friendly and loved my get up (especially my coffin purse). I'm still waiting for some of the great shots from the con, I will be sure to share a few when I get them.

Anyway... back to crochet.
The lovely little gears would be beautiful as embellishments on costumes or starch them to make lovely steampunk Christmas ornaments.

Tea Bag Cosy

I am a tea drinker, (think Ramona Flowers from Scott Pilgrim) lots and lots of tea, all sorts. Although I prefer loose tea, when I travel I take along a few prepackaged bags.
Make the tea bag in any color (try the color of your favorite tea). Stuff lightly then whip stitch closed and it can be an amigurumi rather than a tea bag cosy.
