Leather work

In the midst of quarantines, curfews, and lock-downs, I suggested to bored, house-bound readers to go beyond their TV screens and indulge or discover a hobby. I offered to post pictures of anything folks sent to me as examples of the talent among us and as inspirations for others.

Tomy from the blog Tomy's wife sent me some shots of wood and leather work he has done. It is an impressive combination of shaping, stitching, AND embossing! Enjoy:
