It got a lil chilly last night,, so I swiped the blanket my wife has been working on for me,,, it just needs the backing. She had a lil setback this past year due to a series of strokes… she wanted to have it done by Christmas… she’s about 95 percent back to herself,,,, I think she did a fantastic job!! [Linked Image]

Wow! What a beautiful job. Has to be nice to be married to someone with that type of talent.
Good to hear she's doing well.

Naw, although I usually do my own tanning,,, the sheet amount of time involved trying to break the skin was a luxury I just don’t have. I sent them to tubari. I’m very pleased with them

I like it. How many raccoons did it take?

Your raccoons have nicer color than most of the coons around here. Did you select and match them by color?

Curious myself actually,, but I’m pretty sure she has something pretty cool lined up. She’s quite talented with her sewing skills. Maybe I’ll post some pics of some shirts she’s made me in a future post

There are 30 3x coons in the blanket,, and I sorted them out ,, tried to make sure the colors matched,,, lots of dingy ones didn’t make the grade,, lol. I’m thankful I catch lots of raccoon,,,

Beautiful. I’ve always loved the look of raccoon fur always thought it was a shame it was sold fur in. Eric
