sticky sinew

moccasin 2

Here is the beginning of my first pair of moccasins. Hubby and I both received a kit for Christmas (thank you!), and after cutting out the pattern realized there was only a spindly beading needle included! We searched all over town and finally found a leather needle.

This was as much as I could do before taking a break, the sinew is sticky and the needle needs to be pushed and pulled at every stich. Seeing how I am labouring, I doubt hubby will attempt anymore and I will likely end up finishing them for him for next Christmas.
