An old friend

I got this design from Jay Griffith, the very first boot maker I worked for. I was hired to stitch boot tops, and for several months I only did simple one-row stitch patterns. The first complicated, multi-row design I remember was this one, and I shudder to think how it must have looked. My only memories of this design involve Marty Stuart–the first boot was for a friend of his, and the second was for a member of his band. I’ve always loved the design and longed to make it again, and I’m excited to finally be doing it.
