I've spent the last two days playing with leather. I'd forgotten how much I enjoy working with it!

These are ready to have sari silk added for bookmarks, and rivets and key rings for key fobs.

Whew! I am happy to be on a roll creatively speaking. I always have worked best under pressure. Although I have had plenty of time to ask myself what in the heck I've been doing all summer that I don't have more of an inventory built up.

My mind of course is trying to tell me to make a dozen other things that aren't on the show to do list.

I must stay focused. But it's so hard. I have the rolling mill I want to play with. My engraving stuff is here, just sitting. I even ordered pnp paper to do some more etching.

(my studio is a mess)

There just aren't enough hours in the day.


  1. Ohh nice work , I enjoy working with leather too.

    I agree, where does the time go?

    Have fun, Ro

  2. Wow! You've been busy! Nice leather work!
    I can relate to having sometimes ideas spin out of control. There really aren't enough hours in the day when one is on a creative high!
    Have fun!

  3. yep where DOES the time go? It just disappear. Whenever I sit down at my bench I swear it's like a time warp. Swoooosh and hours are gone..

    Love your leather work, they look great!

  4. Most days...not enough hours; some days...too many hours. Love the leatherwork....especially that one with the blue flower peaking out from the center. Are these for your consignment shop?

  5. Yes- these are beautiful and so colorful!!
