Be careful what you ask for..............

.......some of you on here will have noted me jumping in and accepting the leather offcuts kindly offered by melb's wife Lin.  Weill I went across today to collect what I thought would be a small box of pieces of leather.  I found two large plastic bins, which together I almost struggled to carry to the Land Rover. I am sure half a dozen cows contributed to what was in them.  I have only looked at the topmost pieces and there is some very usable leather in there. I will sort it through in the next 6 months..... yes there is that much and anyhting I cannot use I will put on here and post free of charge to any member who can find a use. Small amounts only which would go in a large envelope.  Watch this space.

Thank you Linda, hope you enjoy the walnuts.

Is there enough...perhaps...to make a medium sized posing pouch? Ahem. For a friend of course....

And for the lady wife maybe a selection of different colours so a small ladies purse could be made for her from two skins? Or perhaps a couple extra (if they'd fit in the envelope) so she could have the same small purse but made from four....?

You're very welcome to the leather nev . I reckon she's got enough here to make a leather coat for every member of pigeonwatch . It's a shame that we don't have time to go through it , but theirs just too much of it. More boxes will be coming soon if anyone needs it.

Thankyou for the nuts , Lins old fella has already been stealing them 😅.

I'll drop a bag of walnuts for him personally in the next few days.

When I saw that, I thought of the number of people on here who make knives, and stacked leather handles.

Always interesting to see what others make out of things we consider offcuts, castoffs and waste.
