A couple of weeks ago, I mentioned that I was gettign some Horween leather. Well, it came in and I made my first project with it! I absolutely love working with the Horween. It cuts and stamps beautifully, and leaves almost no waste. My first project was a drumstick bag my brother-in-law suggested I make. Thanks, Bob, it came out great! Please check it out in the listings portion of the web site. Thanks! And, I appreciate your well-wishes during the government shut down. This is day 29 of no pay due for us, even though we are showing up for work every day. If they would let me stay home, I'd have more new leather items to show you!
