Boot making as therapy

Today I practiced a little bit of the Self Employed Person’s Physical Therapy (suck it up and do it anyway). I tore up several things in my left arm a few months ago and this stitch requires spreading the arms wide, which isn’t easy for me right now. By the time I finished I had a little more range of motion!
Typically an average man’s pair of boots takes me about 45 minutes per boot to stitch. The first boot of this pair fought me every step of the way and took a good hour and a half. The second boot was a little lamb and was finished in 35 minutes. Maybe my arm was better or maybe that’s just life.
