Saturday was made of even more flail than usual, although in the morning the little bins for the big green tool bin arrived, and we got the hardware re-packed into them. I seem to have made a mis-calculation, and ordered 1" wide bins as space-fillers, when I could have gotten 2" ones. But they're not too expensive, so I'll probably not worry about returning/exchanging the 1" ones, and just get 2" ones.
Yesterday, since I was going to be dyeing things black anyway, I finished cutting a chunk of leather up into softish pouch parts, and then went out and dyed a whole bunch of things.
I worked on the black purses, and then got a pouch ready to lace up during the MuseCon meeting. I could have finished it at the meeting, as well as hemming the top of the pocket for the rectangular purse, but I decided the pouch needs a slight modification that would be easier if I didn't finish lacing up the sides.
After the meeting I worked on the purses some more, up to getting the gussets glued in, so they've been drying overnight. Then I moved on to another pouch.
Today the plan is to get the pouches ready for final assembly steps - sewing the dee holders onto the gussets, and lacing up. I also want to go downstairs, cut strips for braided belts and any other black belts we need out of a partial side we have.
After that, the remains of that side come upstairs to be used on the current steampunk-ish project. Yeah, I'm doing it in black (sigh). Black sells. I'm hoping to also get that ready for final assembly today, which means I should quit yakking and get to work...
