Raccoon blanket almost done - 01/13/22 05:19 PM

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 strokesÖ she wanted to have it done by ChristmasÖ sheís about 95 percent back to herself,,,, I think she did a fantastic job!! [Linked Image]

Naw, although I usually do my own tanning,,, the sheet amount of time involved trying to break the skin was a luxury I just donít have. I sent them to tubari. Iím 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?

There are 30 3x coons in the blanket,, and I sorted them out ,, tried to make sure the colors matched,,, lots of dingy ones didnít make the grade,, lol. Iím thankful I catch lots of raccoon,,,
