Here are my most recent creations and deviations. I took my shorter amigurumi and lengthened it as well as adding greater personality. Each of these crocheted friends have their own books telling you more about them. They are posted in my etsy shop-

Drixa the Relephant is a mix between elephant and rat.

Beau is a battalo with parts bat and buffalo.

Gaius is a cametan, mostly camel with some orangutan.

Mingo is a walruog, part walrus and part prairie dog.

This was something I whipped up today on my day off. I have some round travel tea tins and I thought it would be cute to put a drawing on both sides of the tin. Then I had to make a cozy critter to tote it around in. The eyes are clasps as well and it has a keychain loop.

I haven't written about books in a while, but I still am excited about them. The Invention of Hugo Cabret by Brian Selznick is wonderful! It has superb illustrations and a top knotch story that any one will enjoy. Lady Friday by Garth Nix caught me off guard when I saw it yesterday. I wasn't supposed to come out until March and the email alerts still treat it like it is still 3 weeks away! It is in the Keys to the Kingdom series by Nix. I am re-reading all of the Harry Potter books in anticipation for the release of the 7th book on July 21st. We are doing discussion groups at my bookstore each month before the release and we're going to have the best Harry Potter Party ever!
