Found this super nice crocheted cup of coffee on Linsy's blog
tried to replicate it, here is what I think looks more like a cup of tea but still has this cuteness about it
the way I did it
I used this tutorial : "flat circle with single crochet " to make the bottom of the cup, ending with 18 sts.
Then crochet the first row inserting the hook only on the inside loop
For each row sc in each st, sl st in the last one , chain one
I do this about 10 times
Crochet the "yellow circle" representing the tea, the same way as the bottom of the cup
Fill the cup with filling material
I then attach the "tea cover" to the cup by crochetting bother of them together with the green yarn.
I finish off with a round of sc in each st.
Knit an I-cord for the handle and sew it on the cup

I recently came across this book at the library: "Hæklede firkanter" from Bente Lavsen, where I found this idea of maknig a cube out of crocheted granny squares
So I first tried to do a cube and stuffed it with the usual white stuffing I use for amigurumi, but it didn't look too good, although it doesn't really show on the picture.
Then I filled another cube with a fabric cube
Here is the final version

After the new year's party ended here is the mini balloon I made for my son :-)
This is a trick I learned from my mother to prolong the life of a balloon, using the remaining pieces, creating a vacuum with your mouth so as to shape a mini balloon, twist the end, tie a thread and voila
