When I was home at Christmas, Dad asked me if I could make him a trifold leather wallet. Of course I could, once I had either made the parts or obtained parts from a kit.  Dad showed me his wallet and expressed some urgency in completing his request.  

I just happened to get a chance to drop by Tandy Leather in Portland Oregon on Jan 3, so I picked up a kit. I made note that it came with supplies to stitch it up, but not with leather lacing.  It came with sinew thread. No worries though.  I'd grabbed a dark brown spool of leather lacing when I was home, and a few lacing needles.  

When I went home last week, I dug around in the workshop til I found the Tool Box (check out photos in the Leatherwork folder in my gallery if you haven't already). After I took several photos, I proceed to dye the wallet back and set it aside to dry while Dad and I ate dinner. After dinner, I buffed the back to a nice shine, then sat down to lace it up. Dad fussed with his wood stove while I laced, and soon he was watching me finish the last few inches of lacing.  Once I finished, I snapped a couple photos and presented him with the wallet.  He was all smiles!

And that's the story behind my photo uploads today.  I have many more leather tools and projects to share, and when I can locate the photos I took of the kits I did while in Austin TX,  I'll upload them.  

Have a great night my friends, and be safe out there.

It has been a pleasure talking with you. By the way, I did find one part of the leather tools, and I took photos. All I need to do now is find the upload option - hopefully without downloading the app for which I have so little space already. I did do a photo dump from my transfer drives so I can move photos from my phone to those, but even that's limited. And the provider app update has stepped up the annoyance level to multiple times a day as opposed to the once after reboot it used to give. I suppose a new phone will preempt a new laptop for awhile. Stay safe out there.

And talking with you! Emoticon: Bow
I am looking forward to seeing them, but am sorry you are having problems with the app.
And you stay safe yourself, my friend!

I managed to upload most of the photos last night. I don't have the app installed, and sometimes the browser doesn't always display all buttons/links, or it displays them differently in mobile version than normal. I just had to find where the button was.
