So I’m doing this custom camera bag for someone, and I ordered a tool to use for burnishing leather edges last week which STILL hasn’t gotten here.  I’m kind of wishing I’d just gone to Tandy Leather even though it’s not super convenient.  Eh, oh well.

Am getting excited about the camera bag nevertheless, and already want to make more.  I think I undercharged for this one and if I make additional bags for Etsy or something, will charge more.  Still getting the feel for how much to charge on things!

Last night, instead of doing anything productive, I played Skyrim and then sort of worked on some oak leaves while watching Seinfeld.  Mostly I watched Seinfeld though.  It was a relaxing evening.  Tonight I’ll actually be piecing stuff together though, which does count as being productive.  I thought about taking pictures of the process of making this camera bag and posting a bit of a tutorial, but that seems like a whole lot of work and I’m liable to forget to stop for pictures which would result in incomplete instructions.  Hm, that might actually not be bad.

Stupid Skyrim.  I wasn’t even thinking about it, until I mentioned it above and remembered where I stopped last night.  I’m doing the Dragonborn quest in Solstheim with ol’ Herma Mora.  This character (Bjean) is at level 40 or 41 or something, and I’ve been in Solstheim before (in fact, Talvas Fathryon – Neloth’s student – was my follower for a long time and is now my Steward back in Skyrim) but just hadn’t ever started the Miraak quest.  I like having a decent bow before I go into the Apocrypha…..  Last save was right after entering Apocrypha; I even have a handful of Black Books but haven’t even used them yet.  Blast.

But anyway.  Can totally save that for some other time when I don’t need to be productive.
