That is all
That is all
I am like really terrible sometimes at being human.
I kind of want to walk around and just squawk at people like a peacock and hope they will accept my invitation of friendship.
This morning, my class was cancelled so we went up into the woods, mostly to look at the bluebells, but we discovered an animal sett, we all argued of which animal, but probably stoat or weasel, but badger and fox were contenders, beside which lay a perfect but inside-out rabbit skin, minus legs. Which I joyously claimed, deciding I would tan in.
I don’t have any pictures of it as it was in the wood, because my battery died, but I have some of it slit at the shortest point and laid out in my garden.
I’m tanning it, and it will become a trophy of my days as an ecology & conservation student. I really hope to get over my squeamishness of dead animals and value them as resources.
After some googling, and a household lack of alum, I have left the pelt to soak in a salt/water/vinegar mix. I’ll leave it there 3 days then stretch it and anoint it with egg and hopefully that will produce something I can be proud of.
