  1. Glad you liked it and the key chain too! Rockoboy. Got yours in the mail today. Thank you and all the way from Australia no less. Really like the dog and oak leaf motif! Nice looking stuff yintx.
  2. Tammy no worries I'm sure we all understand hope everything is better on your end! If halo can just send to yintx that will solve it with no worries . Long as he comes back from sausage and beer land ie germany
  3. If Halo hasn't sent yet we can just have Halo send to yintx.

    Oh, come on now. Seriously, Tiny Again?

    Looks wonderful me to. I have a hard enough time with full size carving. You are always learning and that is the best part. Keep making!!!! Ross
  7. Ok Folks Here is mine I chose the Oak leaf pattern out of Al Stohlman Projects and Designs book I carved it in the leather and did some petal lifting which is tough to see in the lousy pics. I then dyed the background black and the outside Brown. I did try 2 different colors on the acorn of brown but upon adding the pecard leather dressing and then some beeswax and neatsfoot oil it darkened to the same color. I chose to leave the leaves and stick alone so it stood out. I also added a backing of oil tan leather and then double loop laced with brown calf skin. The carving is ok and I still have so much to learn. Depth of cut and proper impressions still elude me at times. I did this one just by using a sray bottle to case the leather ....I have tried other ways in the past. I am happy with the lacing and sure had fun doing this project!
  8. Ok Folks Drum Roll please......... Based on response on this thread here is the list of who to send to and receive from...if you did not complete please let me know and I will adjust the list. The selection process was a arduous one involving slips of paper upside down on my desk and picking them up at random to build the list Please send a private message to your person to supply address etc. Also please post your complete pictures on this thread. I hope everyone had some fun and learned a thing or two. Enjoy the work of others and remember how special it is to receive someone elses efforts celebrate that!!
