First love


  1. That leather looks luscious! I have never worked with leather but I have a few pieces from swatches that I have been looking at, touching and smelling... can't wait to see what you make!

  2. Thank you for sharing such a great compact way of hauling your stuff around! I love that idea. I look forward to your new projects....
    And as ALWAYS I look forward to the beautiful photgraphs.
    Have a wonderful weekend!
    Take care!

  3. Oooooo, Leather! Yum! I haven't done much in leather... I can't wait to see what you come up with! Especially with your wonderfully fun combinations of elements and fabrics--whee! Have fun!

  4. I cannot imagine having the skills to work with leather. I have heard it is very tricky. You obviously have a lot of talent. Must be very rewarding to be able to create all the things you do!

  5. It's always such fun to hear from y'all and if you care to take a look, I have that Leather work tab up at the very top! some of it is pretty recent.

    Hope everyone is having a great weekend ~ we have had cold rain all day long, can you believe that!?!

  6. Isn't it funny how all these cases smell powdery? I have the twin of yours...Filled with "bits of things". {that is the scientific term ;) }
    I am anxiously waiting to see what you create!
    The weather here has been foggy and COLD too...Mizzle~ly?
    Hope this week is nicer for you both S & L.

  7. i never go into leather stores unless i am in colorado...the two go hand-in-hand for me. just looking at your pictures, i can smell it. and your bags are beautiful! i am in awe of leather workers...such talent!

  8. I LOVE LOVE LOVE leather, Susan, even though I haven't worked with it much myself. I love the smell of it and the feel of it. Anything leather! I would love to see what you're planning to make next. I recall some darling little purses awhile back, right?

  9. I am in love with Leather Mary. A teepee in the mountains? Girlfriend rocks it!

    And, you know what? You have inspired me and I am going to blog about it!

    My granddaddy was a charter bus driver, and for as long as I can remember, his travel partner was a brown Samsonite. I've been using it to store some of his belongings, but I think it's time I get it back out and on the road. I know he'd love that! Thank you, friend!!
