A REVOLUTIONARY INVENTION!

EEEEWWWUUURIKA!! I've finally hit the big one folks. While doing my househusbandly duties, i suddenly and quite serrindipitiously (too excited to check the spelling) found a true way to make a simple household appliance perform an important secondary duty.
And being the sharing kind of person that i am, i have decided to let you all in on the discovery.

You're saying, "Sure Jimbo, aren't you the patent guy? Aren't you going to run and patent this marvelous invention and make yourself fortunes?". No i say. Out of the goodness of my heart, i'm going to share this wonderous invention with YOU.

Ok... now a bit of background. You know i make hooks. You also know i'm quite an accomplished crochetier. ... Well ok, that might be a bit of an exaggeration. But i do keep a little yarn around just to test hooks once in awhile.

And that test yarn is stored in a little box on the floor. Well this morning while i was vacuuming, this wonderous epiph... er idea struck me........ well i'll just let you see for yourself.






Course i had to frog the whole thing before cleaning the rest of the carpets, but you get the idea?

Go ahead, feel free to use it yourself.

Hmm, I have a variation that includes the miniblind string...

Oh, and have I shown you the artpiece I call "Vacuum Hanging from Miniblind"? It's a masterpiece.

I made a version of that about a week ago myself. Unfortunately, mine included fishing line. Who knew my hanging material for Christmas ornaments could cause such chaos? The vaccuum's still in the shop. *sigh*
