Managed to put poppers on a flash case and diana mini case yesterday. I get quite bored of hammering popper fasteners so try to put it off. But least some of it is done and two pieces are on my etsy shop.
1st is a diana flash case. Bronze leather with lime green stitching and a purple popper.
The 2nd is a diana mini case. Forest green leather with floral patches of fabric all sewn together with pale pink thread and pale pink poppers.
So that's them so far. I've nearly finished a diana case. I've popper'ed it already. Just need to make an extension bit (i know what i mean) so the case can be adapted for use on a 120 or 35mm diana. The 35mm back has a lump on the back that needs considering which does not appear on the 120mm back.
Will get that done later and photograph in the morning.
I have one more diana mini case ready to hammer poppers on which is made from tweed style felt.
Time to get ready to bugger off. Out for dinner tonight. Yum Yum. Though i better be good and stick to salad :(
Not written for ages. I kept meaning to but always got distracted or ran out of time. Not been up to muchos. Worked a wrestling event on friday gone and it was one of the weirdest things i've seen. I've never seen so many geeky looking blokes in one place. There was like 4 women and 300 men. Strange indeedy. Was like a sci fi convention or something. I felt very out of place and i was getting paid to be there. Took a hell of a lot of photos too. Why?? I don't know when i'm ever going to look at them. Maybe when i can be bothered to put them on the puter i will post a few. Don't expect anything exciting. The best part of the evening was recording mates doing mock wrestling moves then it all going wrong and them proper flipping over and hurting themselves. Obviously hurting themselves weren't too good, but all added to the comedy :)
I've been a bit slack with my craftiness at the moment. I've nearly finished a diana flash case, two diana mini cases and a diana case. I just need to add poppers to them. I was going to try get them done this evening but i'm shattered. I managed to get in my pjs and collaspe in front of the picture box. Finish work earlier tommorow so will try get them done. Don't know what's wrong with me. I'm on new meds that make me more tired but i shouldn't be this exhausted.
