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.

I love cross stitch! But you won't see any cross stitch stuff out of me for a few years at least... I kinda took on a cross stitch project that was a little bit on the large side. ;)

Mmmm murdering small animals. Sounds like FUN ;) *goes to college* *lots of squirrels there* *wonders how many squirrels it takes to make a furcoat* ;)

About three campuses worth of squirrels, in my expert opinion. ;)

but that would be over three thousand squirrels!

Well, yeah, but when you're using a latchhook to hunt the little buggers, you gotta take pelt damage into account. >.>;

Let me check my craft box. Hmmm...

Pencil darts? Blind 'em with bottled ink? Oh! I know! Drop a sewing machine on 'em from great height!

The possibilities are endless. I must go raid grandma's artillery. Enjoy your nuts, little aquirrels... they will be your last. ~_~
