The 70s patchwork sheepskin has not left my back since I got it in 2013 (except in summer), which accounts for why the seams--the many many seams-- started separating. Once they'd started it just went on and on, and it's still going on. So I keep getting out the floss to oversew yet another gap. Eventually the whole thing will be covered in colored lines. I decided one side should be on the red spectrum, the other in the blues end. Doris here is showing us the reds. That's me wearing it when it was still entirely black. I call this frankensteining.*
