Despite my good intentions, I didn't finish the "green" hackamore last night. Fortunately, I was able to make quick work of it this morning. I'm very pleased with the final results.The rest of my day was devoted to the boring parts of tackmaking. I dyed a lot of leather...
and prepared more than a dozen feet of lace.
My studio is awash in leather scrapings. No matter how hard I try to be neat, there are always far more on the desk and floor than there are in the trash can!
Prepping leather is even more tedious than prepping models. However, it's one of the most important parts of tackmaking. I'm pleased with my day's work, and I can't wait to turn all that prepared leather into something pretty!~
