Chico Hayasaki was a Japanese foreign exchange student at our high school a bazillion years ago. The funny coincidence is that I stayed at her family’s house during a high school trip to Japan. Anyway, she is now an incredible artist, and she seems to be doing very well, exhibiting her artwork in Japan and New York City. Check out this cute little teeny bag of hers. I think she designed the fabric, too!

The bag is 5.75″ wide and just under 6″ tall.
And I don’t know how old this nutty little rug is, but my mother brought it over the other day and asked me to bind the edges.

We used to make these latch hook rug things when I was a kid. I wonder if this one is that old?

    Wow, that is one totally nuts latch hook. I’d be willing to be either the latch hook or at least the kit is from a fair number of years ago!

    I could never figure out what to do with the completed latch hook rugs. I occassionally see those little packets of short thread at the thrifts and I fantasize about connecting about 20 latch hook kits to make a giant ugly rug.
