A bit late...
Yesterday turned out to be a crazy day and I got nothing accomplished that I wanted to. The good news is that my first two tasks for today are out the the way and I'm working on #3- sharing my plaquette! It's a dark blue leather that has a finish on it that makes it a bit shiny as you can see. Although some of the shine has to be blamed on my tool work. I'm totally in love with it and I have another piece of pared leather to make another plaquette with. For the workshop on Tuesday night we were instructed to do angular designs as they would be easier to start with and we would all finish sometime before midnight. I thought K was a fitting first attempt, and another girl took the same idea and did an A for hers. Each time I pick this piece up I smile, the picture doesn't do it much justice- I'm learning that leather is not as easy as paper to photograph.
I need to get back to work so I can make enough money to start to afford the tools and the quality of leather I need!
