Pink Owls!

I've been busy with making lots of pink owls over the last couple of weeks.  Lots of pink suede and bright colors with the added fun of owl faces.  It's nice to work out of my usual comfort zone once in a while.  All of these are heading to their new home in Australia soon so now it's back to making pouches and billfolds for the next few weeks.

The End of First Grade!

Ciaran and I collaborated on a "Thank You" present for his teacher.  He drew a beautiful butterfly which I transferred to a piece of red leather.  I burnt in the design and then painted in the colors.  It turned out beautifully!  Ciaran autographed the inside cover and we sent it off today to his teacher for a last day of school present.  We hope she likes it!  Other than that, I have been making owl themed custom orders and have cut out a few more pouches to be sewn when my custom orders are all done.  I am looking forward to a Summer of LOTS of outdoor adventures with the kids, hopefully, they will let me have a few moments here and there to create and sew.  I have a whole pile of leathery goodness that wants to show itself off in completed form.  I hope they get to do that soon.  Happy Summer Vacation!
