  1. Hi there. I need help to find somewhere I can locate a Brother Foot for a Brother DB2- B714-3 Machine. And needles to take a med to thick thread. I am not having much luck as I do not have a instruction book that goes with it. If you can point me in a direction I would be very grateful to you all.

    Here are some leather roses I was playing with today. Kiwi.
  3. Hi there, Again. Here is another of my lastest work. I mounted it into a shadow box. approx 20" x 22" . Enjoy. taking a break. kiwi
  4. Darn you guessed my secret!!!!!. Could fool you could I . But it is l leather carving with a coat of colour. I just put some leather on the frame and now going to fit it. Currently working an other painting.
  5. Hi there All. I have been pretty busy, moving, promoting my work etc, and had no internet for a little while. But now things are getting back to normal. This is a leather painting that I have just finished. 12 x 14 approx. I am going to add some leather details to the frame to make it different, and then put it up for sale. Hope you are all carving great things and I am hoping to catch up with what has been posted latelt. Kiwi.
  6. Well I finally got the beading I did sometime ago into a belt. Hard to find the time in between other work to do. I used med brown dye and then applied antique. Turned out not too bad. Need to start finding the time to more beading again. Happy Carving. Kiwi.
  7. I noted that a few of you after my tiger post asked to see it uncoloured. That one no, no photos, but here is one for you to see the before and after. It looks a little strange because I add stuff, and sometimes the added items are not the same colour base as ther rest of the leather, which I really do not care about when it for a Painting. I do not generally let anyone see them before they are finished. I carve every detail, so that if it fades you can still see, and feel the details of my work. I get ideas as I go along, so half way through it sometimes ends up with different details to what I had planned on at the beginning. Then there are the ones that I end up not liking when I am finished. But everyone else does. The one here is an indian with deer and wolf. First is a picture of it before I add the finishing touches, second ready to dye, and then 2 of the finished picture. I always have everything on to it when I go to dye as I can see the finished painting as a whole. I had tried adding details afterwards, but the colours were off and blend right. ENJOY Happy carving. Kiwi
  8. Thanks to you all for the great comments on my tiger. I get a thrill do each and every one of my pieces. Kiwi
  9. Yep Firday the 13th was a bad day and I do believe in that stuff. I was called " a mad person, was never any good, like talking to a brick wall ", all because they forgot to tell me that the feed had changed on one of the horses, and of course it was my fault, and got yelled and cussed at. I should have told him to just go ahead and shot me if I am that bad. But I never said one word. They get me free to cover rent 2 hours a day. That made my day that is for sure, then my car battery was flat as a pan-cake and could not do my business chores. Then, joy of joys, my laptop decided to die on me. Thank goodness for my desk top. HP are helping me, via the internet, to get it up and running again. Think it is a virus in the hard drive. Lost everything that was onit. Will have to copy the needed photos, etc from this one to CD's and reload it when it decides to return to me. ( IF IT DOES). You know everything runs in three's, don't you now. So my day was really BLACK. Things will only get better now. Kiwi
  10. Thought that I would share another item I did and that is a Photo Ablum cover. The photo of the inside was too blurry to post sorry. It had a ring Binder in side. That shows you that before the item leaves check your photos for this reason. My camera is giving me problems getting focused lately. Happy carving everyone. Kiwi
