    Great stuff, Mike!

    I have one that you made last winter. Simply a fabulous piece of gear.

    thanks. there have been further refinements, some things as small as fabric-matching thread, and others more important like better differential construction.

    also, some ppl like opposing-color thread, like silver thread on black fabric and visa-versa. its pretty cool.

    A squirrel fur winter coat is high on my wish list. I'm hoping to have one for my snowshoeing trip scheduled for January.

    Yay you! The opposing-color thread detail pretty much rocks btw.

    I wonder how many squirrels it takes to make an under quilt?
    don`t leave the CREATOR out of the creation!

    Seriously? Haha, that's incredibly odd. I was trying to think of people I hadn't seen post on HF for a while, and for some reason, mikeinfhaz stuck in my head, but I couldn't remember what the "fh stood for. Fountain Hills just wouldn't stick in my head.
    Good to know you're not gone!
