Cold and busy sewing

I have been busy sitting and sewing every evening and taking pictures along the way but neglected to posted updates on website.

Here are some pictures of the progress;

It’s been cold and it’s going to get colder 🌬❄️

Bottom front added;

I am sewing the squirrels on fur side. When I sew calf skin and squirrels furs together I sew from leather side. It looks sturdy and neat to sew the squirrels on fur side.

I am sewing the top arms together measure by measure.

At some point I will sketch the pattern together and post. I haven’t had time to write about the museum experience.

Happy new year!!!🎆
