Birchbark Canoe

Yes, I'm posting this at 4:30 am.

Some days I wonder about my sanity.

Yes, I laced the seats. (Cotton crochet thread... I'm not nuts enough to use rawhide.)

Can you tell which I did first?

Pretty obvious, isn't it?

Is it perfect? No.

Is it awesome? In my opinion, yes. If my cousin doesn't agree, I sure hope she sends it back.

And now, to bed. Good night!

PS: If you ever need to lace a (miniature) canoe seat, this site is useful.

"Impressed" doesn't even begin to describe me.

Thanks everyone! :) (It's safely on it's way to Kansas now, assuming no problems at the border and no traffic accidents... of which I hope there are neither, for my parent's sake!)

Carebear: Thank you!
