New desk

The new desk has arrived, the delivery men were very nice and helped me move the old desk into the back room (it’s free if you’ll come get it!!), and the wait was worth it. Isn’t it pretty?

The best-laid plans

These boots are ready for soles, and the soles are prepared.

But instead of laying soles, I’m waiting for my new desk to be delivered. I had asked for ample time to unload my old desk and they assured me they’d give it, but they called this morning to say they were on their way with the desk. I jumped up and literally just dumped drawers in boxes so I’d be ready.
That was well over two hours ago…
Now I don’t know if I should go get in the middle of laying soles or continue to wait…

Inseaming

I broke away from unending computer work today, went back in my shop, and inseamed a boot. Plus, I experimented with a new way to attach fishing line bristles. It was fast and easy, and they stayed on!

New shoes!

My shoes are finished and I finally got to try them on. They fit beautifully! I can’t wear them home though, because I want to take good pictures in my lightbox before I wear them. This episode of successful shoemaking is brought to you by Steven Lowe and Dominic Casey of Lastmaker House (www.lastmakerhouse.com) and the Bonney and Wills School of Shoemaking.
