Foxes in Love

At a time when I am not taking custom orders I was a bit hesitant to post pictures of this bag bound for a woman I love so much, but it feels forgivable
because it was part of what brought me my rolling mill:

a partial trade

with the understanding that due to my injuries it would take longer than it usually would.

She was patient, gracious and maternal, as she always is.

I am bursting with excitement about this one, because it was so inspired by caring about someone, making something for a friend...

When the riveting hours are long and the hands are tired, nothing nudges you gently toward completion quite like the mental vision of the piece in question tucked under the arm
of someone so beautiful and loving.

I told her a few nights ago that I wouldn't be able to contain my excitement, that I'd have to send pictures, and so I did....

I felt I'd regret it if I didn't also share them with you all, my dear ladies and gentlemen.

xoxoxo to you today,

Allison it is stunning! I love all the finishing touches you always put into your work - those little heart notches are what got me in the end (sometimes its the small things right?)
I love the two foxes caught in each others gaze.
It has your heart in every aspect of it.
