One more Christmas order done. Thank goodness these people don't live far away. I'll still have to deliver it though. This was the first one of these I've ever done. All in all, it turned out really well. The worst part was the back, and I'm not even gonna put that pic up. Long story, but there's a dark spot of oil that soaked through from the underside. I was sick. Sent a pic to the customer, and they didn't think it was that big of a problem. Whew!! Hopefully, in time it will lighten some. Aside from that, it turned out pretty slick. Learned some things along the way too. Only had to unstitch the gusset once to make it fit...LOL. Anyway, take a look and let me know what you think. Stay blessed gang.

Thanks gang very much for the nice words. I've said it before, and I'll say it again, I've truly been blessed with this gift. From the man who showed me how the flow worked a few years ago, to others who have given me pointers and such along the way, those people have all been placed in my life for a reason. Included in those people, is Bruce Johnson who unselfishly sent me a pattern for the rope bag. I had no idea how to build one, and called Bruce and he sent me patterns for all the pieces. Thanks buddy. I'm truly humbled by your kind words, and so grateful for all of those who have become my friends along the way. Remain blessed folks.

That's incredible work! I really need to figure out how to draw designs like that. If you don't mind my asking, how do you keep the leather is original color? Before I antique, I apply neatsfoot oil and clear - lac and that darkens everything up considerably. It still looks good, but I'd like the option of natural color as well. Merry Christmas!
