Well one good thing about feeling under the weather and having crappy real weather to boot is that I have had a burst of indoor productivity resulting in filed taxes, baked breads, requested grant funds, and, more artwork!
Working with this new leather has really been encouraging. It's finally possible to make a product that is "finished" to a level of craftsmanship that I am happy with. Also, the idea struck me to use the stamps I carve for stationary to print the interior side of the leather before stitching it all together, supper diggin' the breakthrough feeling!
