Hey there

a long time ago someone asked me if I would be able to get them a goat skin for them to mount but I cant remember who (I thought it was a note but ive ever deleted it or it may have just been through comments somewhere)

Anyway, if that person is reading this I'm really sorry but things have been really slow in the goat department and I haven't been able to get anything. I assume they would have guessed as much already but I really just wanted to apologise.... We DID work with goats this week but had none die and even if they did, the pelts are pretty ratty at the moment because its been so incredibly f***ing hot this last month and a half (pretty sure our average would be about 42*C).

hope everyone is going well...... got a new camera for xmas so will probably be posting a bit of photography.... did a massive batch of tans with my 3 dog skins and a huge roo but am having trouble softening the roo since I have really never done anything that big before and don't have the time to soften it as it dries.... I put a lot of time into softening it but pulled up before it was 100% dry and it ended up going hardish again... fml... I need to do it because I promiced it for a friend of my boss... this is why I like just doing jobs for myself.... I think I need to invest in a fleshing machine because it was jusy wayyyyyy too much effort for a job that I'm doing as a  favour!!!

We've been having a few rainy days off this week (we sent the shearers home because we cant work in the rain. The mud clogs up our motorbike tyres so we cant muster, even though we are able to shed 1500 sheep to keep them dry and keep the shearers working) and we cant drive anywhere without destroying our dirt roads, so Ive started stitching together my fox blanket, but I have no idea what to with the back???
I cant really leave the back just leather because (a) green, chrome tanned leather looks pretty yuck and (b) it isn't exactly soft and silky to have it thrown over your legs... so anyone got an ideas? anyone had a fur blanket to themselves that could maybe offer some help of flick me a picture?

I was thinking of just stitching something nice and soft to the back but i dunno if i could/should just stitch it around the edges (like a quilt cover) or if I should stitch it properly, at a few places so it is acturally attatched to the fur and its a lighter blanket... I think a fur doona might be a bit of an overkill when it comes to warmth! haha

its really got me stumped... I had originally planned on making it a long term work in progress, so i could make it like a small rug first, then as i get more skins it grows to a single blanket for my swag maybe, and eventurally a big queen size for my bed, but that will take a lot of skins and I only have 15 useable skins atm. (i say usable because i have others that are too small/too big/slightly lighter or darker colour that would stand out too much.)

nah I don't get to draw much these days. Tried to get back into it but my laptop is full of viruses so i can't use my tablet anymore till I sort that shit out. Write a little but it rarely makes it past my notebook.

HELLO THERE! I would like to add you to my BLUE CANINE (+ fox) ARMY. it may seem stupid and pointless (which it is), but I thought it'd be fun to see how many Nushaa siblings exist!

thank you and have a nice day~ :heart:
