I've been so quiet this week, I'm sorry! I have finally finished and caught up with all the custom orders I've had, which is now leaving me time to start working on fall things for the shop! There are now seven new pouches in the shop, I had them all cut out and ready to sew for a few weeks, and this morning I had a chance to finish them up. My machine is also back up and running, I had taken it in on tuesday to be fixed, so all is well now - the machinist was actually much nicer in person than on the phone (as I had previously mentioned) and I think I'll send them a thank you card, as he took a lot of time with me.
This weekend we hopefully are going up to cranes beach with some housemates, which I'm looking forward to. I've want to get up there all summer but the weekends are just so short that it's hard to do everything you want to do.
I have a ton of bags to make and I have a ton of leather on my shelf that has been neglected. For the rest of August I'm taking a break from a custom orders (though I will try to honor requests!) so I can prepare for a new season. Please email me if you want to be added to mailing list for any updates.... see you soon!
