My little brothers have decided on going on a new adventure. They have taken a fancy to tanning hides. As you know daddy shot a deer, but they were able to get some more a couple weeks after that. So my brothers had a grand total of three hides. The first accidentally thawed when the freezer threw a fit and decided to turn itself off. They just fleshed and partially de-haired the other one two days ago. unfortunately, a beginners mistake made quite the mess of that hide. and the third is stored away waiting for the two to have enough spare time to work it.
Personally, I am excited for my brothers since it's always good to learn a new trade, and because this means I might get the moccasins I've been wishing for! :) It's also fun to watch them learn, not only from words on paper, but from experience as well.
