Soft cradle for Connor

need to add the inner lining and then a small band of edge roll beading at the very front...and maybe some more hanging things, but its nearly done.
Just received via inter-library loan Candice Greene's article "Soft Cradles of the Central Plains" published in Plains Anthropology (1992) with a nice discussion of the differences between Cheyenne and Lakota cradles and some details on construction (those would have been very handy but I came close; not bad since I had so little info to work from).
