Lab Puppies  
There's this really cute story that some of my friends know about how I never got to make carpets. I was in boarding school in 6th grade, and all the other girls in my dorm were older, so they got bigger allowances than me, so one day they could all go out and get themselves little latch hook carpet making kits. They looked so happy and friendly, sitting there in the dorm livingroom, on the floor, making them. I couldn't get one because my allowance was only $3 a week, and I couldn't afford it. I was sad.

But I got over it, tranfered schools, lived my life happily. It was my then-8-year-old brother who suggested a latchhook carpet kit as a present for me for Christmas one year. I was just extatic when I opened it! I remembered all about how I couldn't have one in 6th grade.

This is it. I'd made it in the following year. My mom had finished it by sewing canvas on the back. It lies in my room now, in front of my bed, and it's very soft. My feet like it very much.

awww, hun, it doesn't take talent ;) at all. Just sitting down and doing it.

But it's neat how it turns out in the end, a picture 'n all. And something I made. Something unique (even if it's from a kit ;)

Now if I could only finish all the OTHER such things that I've started ;)
