I should have told you where I got the pattern for the tea wallet in my last post. This gal really makes it easy, and has pictures!  http://www.handmadetherapy.ca/2011/02/03/tea-wallet-tutorial/

I finally got to make a tea wallet. A particular family member who loves HK, will get this one. It was so fun, easy and fast.
Here's the inside. Holds 4 teabags. 
What do you think of this? Are you a tea drinker. Would you carry something like this???  Maybe not HK, but some other lovely print?
The only thing I would do differently if make a flap to come around to front with a plastic snap.

Scandinavian star ?????

For some strange reason I was thinking of Pam over at:  Gingerbread and Snowflakes blog (http://gingerbreadsnowflakes.com/frontpage)
as I made my first crocheted star ornament in red and white! Does it look Scandinavian to you? 
 Pattern at:  http://www.petalstopicots.com/2012/12/granny-star-pattern/
A red tropical hibiscus flower for you all this morning. Our lovely gardening season is just starting down here in south Florida! 
Have a wonderful weekend everyone!
XOXO- Julie

My grandson playing in a concert at school!

He is a bass player, along with his best friend!  Top picture is Donovan (age 9), in the 4th grade orchestra.
 Best friend, a fellow bassist!
 The two clowns!

They did a great Halloween show for us called Boo Bash, where one person read parts of a very descriptive book about a bat in the forest, and the orchestra played descriptive music to sort of set the scene!  It was really a great show, and glad this ol' grandma was invited!!!

A crocheted cup of dark hot chocolate

Is it me, or does the marshmallow look scary??? I think it still turned out pretty cute! I love these quick and easy projects! This will be a set of food items I am making for my youngest granddaughter. I used safety eyes.
