My cousin, Raymond, is a job recruiter who recently wrote an article titled "How To Land and Protect a Job in a Down Market". From his article:

    "Apply for jobs in 'recession-proof' sectors like vice. People tend to gamble, drink and smoke more when theyre stressed."

With that helpful advice, here are my handmade vices:

The beer bottle is decorated with an oval pattern from Edie Eckman's book, Beyond-the-Square Crochet Motifs. The dice were stitched together from six square pieces each, stuffed, then embroidered with white dots. The cigarette pack has a firm cardboard box inside, and its outside is decorated with red yarn stitched around a plastic bone ring. Each cigarette contains a wooden dowel for support.

I rarelyif everindulge in these vices, but my alter ego, Woomi, has been known to overindulge:

He'll never land a job in that condition!

Love it! I love when vices are cute.

Science is crafty too.

Begin at the beginning and go on till you come to the end: then stop.

I love how when he overindulges, he overindulges a lot. He could probably bathe in that beer bottle  Grin So awesome.

Awesome (neato, brilliant, !!!) work, although may I be the first to suggest that Woomi needs an intervention?  He's a mess!  Wink

I so want a crocheted cigarette now! I smoke like a chimney, as it happens...

Amazing work, as always. I love seeing new posts from you :-)
