Latch Hook Lassie

Ahh, latch hook.  I remember doing this craft as a youth.  My bff Kelli did this craft as a youth.  My husband did this craft as a youth.  It was so much fun.  Sadly, I can't tell you where any of my crafts went.  Mom was not a hoarder and I'm sure they got thrown away when I was not looking.

David wanted to buy Isabel a kit for Christmas, but he could not wait.  Impatient to see her reaction, he gave it to her in...early to mid November, I think.

The first attempt was difficult.  She got frustrated because she could not immediately do it and started crying.  Patience on daddy's end (he took charge) and more practice lead to her LOVING it.

I took a picture of her project when it was half-way done and ended up deleting it from my phone.

She diligently did 1-2 rows every day after homework.  On weekends, she'd do one or 2 rows a day.   Here she is, with about 3 rows left to go.  It's a cute puppy and kitty.  :)

When she finished last week, I sewed the back down and she was SOO excited.  She took the word "rug" in "latch hook rug" literally, and could not wait to display her artwork.  On the floor.  Cause it's a rug.

I love her.

I didn't even know they still made these kits. We were latch hooking maniacs.
