Our pup broke his old collar the other day and Hubby decided to make him a new one out of some old leather he had here. We let the girls stamp his name on his new collar. He is very proud of it and I must say it definitely looks better than his old one did.
Today was ladies bible study day. Our study today was about Elizabeth. It was a really nice study. We only have 2 more lessons in this book. We have decided to do Kelly Minter’s “No Other Gods” next. I will show you all a picture of the study book soon.
Hubby is gone to a deacons meeting at church tonight and I plan on watching a movie. A blogger friend of mine had recently watched this movie, “The Lightkeepers”. I rented it from Netflix and got it in today.
This is a picture of an old leather book bag I made when I was in college. It is roughly 35 years old (I guess I am really telling my age now). As you can see, it gets a lot of use. I’m not even sure what the stain is at the bottom but its been on it for a very long time. I used to work a lot with leather. I have made purses, moccasins, walets, lots and lots of belts. Hubby also has done lots of leather work. He more than me actually. He used to run a leather shop, back when we were younger. He made a knife sheath for our old pastor about 2 years ago. Other than that we have not done leather work in many years. We do still have our tools though. We have talked some about getting them out and working some with the girls. Teaching them how to make things. Leather is just so expensive but I think it would be lots of fun.
This is a picture I did. Once again, many years ago. I won 2nd place in a craft fair with it. Looking at these reminds me of how much fun working with leather is. Well, so much for my walk down memory lane.
