5.0 out of 5 stars I love I Feel Love, December 11, 2012
Percussion is my favorite and this album is full of it. I also really enjoy Venus Hum. This is the album that got me started collecting their music.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great children's book, October 22, 2012
This book is a great book for children up to about age 8 or 9. It explains how cotton is grown, harvested, cleaned and spun, knit and sewn into a shirt. I use it for demonstrations with 3rd grade students when I spin cotton for them. I think it is important for children to understand that the items they use everyday have a history. It makes them appreciate what they have when they understand the work that goes into things, even in a mechanized society.

3.0 out of 5 stars Specialty information, August 19, 2011
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
The rating is more an opinion on how relevant this book is for my weaving than the quality of the writing. It is well written and many lovely examples are photographed. I bought it for information using energized handspun yarn. The yarn used for Ms. Field's class and the beautiful dress in the book are hard to buy commercial yarn used by the airline upholstery industry. I doubt I will ever use the information in this book.

I bought these for my 7 year old granddaughter to use. They are sturdy and colorful. She needs a little help to get the last loop in and has a bit of trouble crocheting the loops off to finish the holders as the loops are firm and right up against the loom. We do this together anyway so I do the last loop and remove it from the loom and we have some wonderful together time. The nylon loopers melt when used as potholders. These cotton loops make thick, sturdy and safe potholders.

I liked these earphones sound rendering and fit. Unfortunately after about 6 weeks the wiring didn't hold up. The sound in one earpiece started cutting in and out and finally quit. I tried to reinforce the wire so the sound worked which lasted another week while I ordered a new pair of headphones.

The 5X magnification makes it easy to see stitches, TPI, angle of twist. Measurements in inches and cm makes it versatile. Just what I needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Swift swift, August 19, 2011
My made in China swift was just too small for the skeins my niddy produced. This has such a wide range all my skeins fit. It also makes it easy to skein yarn without the niddy. It's a great tool.

The carafe fits and works just like the original. My husband bought the travel cup to replace the broken carafe. It came with the outer plastic sleeve already broken. The second one didn't filter the grounds and they stay in the cup while you drink the coffee. I'm glad to have my good press working again.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's the best, September 6, 2006
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I didn't believe what I thought was hype about this vacuum. I tried my kids vacuums first. It is everything advertised and more. I vacuumed with my 2 year old Hoover, then with the Dyson. You'd have thought I never had vacuumed. The carpet now feels soft and new, clean might be the reason. And I didn't have to scrub it. I like the hose length. I can do the stairs without carrying anything. I can vacuum the whole floor without moving the plug. I can clean the ceiling fans without carrying the vacuum up with me. Dusting is almost fun. Rugs that I had to hand clean now get a vacuuming. I spend less time cleaning and more time having fun making messes.
