This morning, the mudslides in Montecito slammed into my home. This is what remains of my workshop. Suffice to say, Rare & Sundry will be closed for some time. However, we are safe, and we will dig ourselves out and rebuild.

Ash all cleaned and added some basic organization that I can’t believe I didn’t do last year.

It’s funny the things you decide to grab when you evacuate. Food... documents... blanchards...

It has been a wonderful year. I feel like my skills have kept growing and I’ve met so many wonderful new friends and clients. 2018 promises to be even brighter! Happy New Year!

Looks like the #thomasfire is finally starting to give in to the will@of the firefighters. Should get to go home soon.

This was in Santa Nella on the far eastern edge of the fire on Day 6. The fire was so large at this point that I drove full speed past this point on the freeway for an hour and still didn’t find the other edge of the fire. #thomasfire

Since there’s no leatherwork photos right now due to the evacuation, I’ve been snapping photos of other things related to the fire that I’ll share until we get to move back in. #thomasfire

So we have been evacuated due to the Thomas Fire in Ventura and Santa Barbara (hence the lack of posts lately). We are safe and so is our home but many other people have lost their homes and people have died (one firefighter this week). Please take the time this holiday season to donate to the #redcross or other disaster relief organizations. They do incredible work.

A much better look at the Ostrich BiFold. You can see the lined wings, cash pocket, and the feel in the hand.
link


I might make another one of these for myself.
link


The ostrich as the folded french binding makes for a real interesting bit of character. There’s a lot of non-quill leather on an ostrich so I might do this on some other wallets too.

The interior of the Ostrich BiFold. Whiskey Buttero vegtan leather all lined with black ostrich.

Ostrich BiFold done! I cannot believe I finally got the chance to work with this beautiful leather. Black ostrich exterior with Italian Buttero vegtan interior and linen saddlestitching.

Drying edges.

All stitched up! On to the edges.

That moment when you nail the foil stamping. 👍
