Weather inspiration...

They are turning... despite the current grey skies...
These are swelling fit to burst, because of the grey skies...
Inbetween the heavy showers yesterday, I looked like this...
And during the heavy showers, I sat on my front porch with this on my lap...
Being read to... a story of a little pony called Merrylegs (not unlike our own Cocoa) with big dreams...
BUT today, I am procrastinating... on a grand scale.
Hatching new plots and schemes... cross your fingers and toes, because its going to be rather nice if I manage it, but more on that later.
Cutting jet black leather into tall Moonshine boots, a birch bag, pan purses and drip pouches...
Sorting piles of already cut leather into coloured piles ready to stitch...

Time to away to the workshop and get on, or should I contnue with a lap full of colour!
