That looks really great and there ain't anything to deal with regarding it either. Well done.

I made a satchel for TBG. I'll start another thread proving its ok for men to make stuff like that for their women. :)

Nicely done, St. Nick!  Are you sure it's for the wife?  LOL.
Is there such a thing as too many knives?

Yep, lace doily. The wife saw it on Pintrist and wanted one.
It's basically a leather envelope folded over and stitched up the sides. I soaked the doily in some watered down craft glue (like doing paper mache) and stuck it on there. When it was dry I used a more industrial adhesive on the edges and under anything that didn't quite stick. I was surprised at how well it actually stayed down.

I like it, but it's just not me........I'm thankful you didn't apply a doily to my journal :P

Nice job, Nick.  And I can deal with it.  LOL  Ever heard Hush's story of taking his knitting into this badass biker shop?  Priceless.

I don't recall but I can imagine.  Most of his stories are kinda priceless.

That's very nice. If it were 10 times bigger Wanda would probably want one too. Good work.

On particularly rough days when I'm sure I can't possibly endure, I like to remind myself that my track record for getting through bad days so far is 100% and that's pretty good.
