Usually I have every detail planned in my mind, but I was uncertain about the beading color on this pair for quite a while. I normally wouldn’t bring in another color that’s not being used for inlay somewhere on the boot, but this pair has multiple rows of stitching in an avocado green color that’s exactly the shade of the leather I decided to use for the beading. 

Now I gotta stitch them. I can skive for hours — I find it endlessly fascinating and meditative — but multiple rows of stitching bore me. I’d rather be skiving like the leather working definition OR skiving like the goofing-off definition, but progress requires that I stitch a whole bunch of leaves now.
