Cutting...

But no sewing! :( And not the kind of cutting you're imagining either! Spent yesteday morning cutting and wrapping Tom's deer. He got a 4 point this year and it is delicious! We'll be eating good this year. Hopefully I can start sewing the Pippa dress this evening. My goal is to have it done by next Saturday so I can wear it to graduation. Perhaps giving myself a deadline will motivate me! :)

Ewww - that's why they have butchers! I'm not a huge fan of deer, but I do like Elk. However, I do admire anyone who is willing and able to provide for their family in that way - Enjoy! g

So, you're a seamstress AND a butcher? Impressive skillset. Enjoy!

We are really picky about how our meat is processed. Most butchers cut venison like beef and it's not as good cut like that. We take the time to separate all the muscles and remove most of the fascia that makes the meat tough. If you don't cut it across the grain properly, it also makes it tough. I don't trust many people with my meat. :)
