Bless you, M. E. Williams, bless your every keystroke and text doc, bless your computer and your desk. Were I not to be getting my tubes tied on October 1st I'd totally have your babies. Well, and if I didn't hate children. Or if I weren't so skeeved about being pregnant. Let's not even talk giving actual birth. I am a wussie. Hello, Essure coils! But I digress. You rock, M.
(For the curious among you, Mr. Garth Johnson over at Extreme Craft comes in at a very close second.)
"This year's most irreverent take on the crafting trend may be F+W's AntiCraft: Knitting, Beading and Stitching for the Slightly Sinister (Dec.). Writers Renée Rigdon and Zabet Stewart prove that no subject's too icky—they offer a how-to on creating beaded necklaces with skulls—or sticky. Their “duct tape corset” may not be typical, but then, a woman cannot live by cotton alone."
I ordered the Quilter's Set of looms from Hazel Rose Looms last week, and they arrived on Monday.
Since Monday, I've barely been able to put them down long enough to draw breath.
My brain is a-flutter trying to be the dark and scary girl with these things, but they make me want to do nice things like make presents for my grandmother (Happy Birthday Nana!) and a big cozy flowery afghan for myself.
I'm sure soon the darkness will take over, and I'll come up with wicked things to do with them, but until then, I'm enjoying the respite of loving my little looms.
Quick review: Well made, rounded corners, perfect nail spacing, wide variety of wood options, and super fast shipping. I give this website five gory stars of joy and consumery goodness. Came with a nice little tote bag too.
