I HEART the Bloom Loom

Hey Y'all!  Hope your day was wonderful yesterday---we had tornado warnings and watches last night!  After soccer practice was over last night, we headed to eat Japanese food with some of our great friends--then headed to Wal-Mart to buy food items that I'm going to be needing to cook at school.  On the way home, we were right in the middle of a horrible storm.  At the Charlotte-Douglas airport, the winds reached 67 miles an hour.  We're not too far from there, so I know it was bad.  There were flying limbs and sticks and it was raining sideways.  When we pulled into our yard, I saw where the winds had blown one of my rocking chairs clean off the porch!  We sat in the van for about 10 minutes and waited it out but finally everything was back to normal.
About a week or so ago, I ended up finding this on Youtube:

So, I had to get me a bloom loom!  Ebayed that sucker right to my front door and this morning, I made my first one!
Don't tell Big Daddy that I spent $60 on materials to make more flowers online yesterday, ok?  Thanks!

Here's my first one:

And here's the actual Bloom Loom!  Hurry---go buy you one!  You'll LOVE it!

Have a great weekend Y'all!

I remember spending hours with that back in the...err, well, it was a decade or 3 ago. OK, it was back when I was in junior high!

This past weekend I thrifted myself a knit board. I hope to teat it out this weekend.
