Making a bag

So, I’m still circumventing my buying-clothing-ban by making things that I want instead. And it’s great, since I’m learning new skills, improving others, and getting to grips with leather. Might move onto making leather purses after this. It’s a nice material to sew with.

Just waiting on my leather and tools in the post now, and soon this bag shall have handles.

Pictures in print

A glimpse of images and text that are particularly working for me aesthetically at the moment.
What I can’t show you is the feel of the paper, the noise (or lack of) as you turn the page, the colours that pop in contrast, and the feeling that, for some reason, these things will last longer than images on a tumblr site.

The Travel Almanac, a paean to meaningful and beautiful travel

I am also reading at the moment, ‘About Looking’ by John Berger, and ‘The Rape of Nanking’ by Iris Chang (in paperback. Yet to get an e-reader).
