    Still have a lot of it left!


    Starting to run a bit short on large, case-sized panels, though.

    Very nice color combination here. It's going to be a real attention grabber whenever your client who commissioned the piece pulls it out.

    Thank you! Sometimes there are color combinations that surprise me, this was one of them. It was very nice.

    Happy owner of that card holder here. It is great. Also just received another nilo croc card holder and passport holder from Parker also great. I got a dangerous habit of exotic SLGs going on right now. Below are parkers pics of the card holder and passport holder. I will snap some more pics when i get a chance. Thr navy is slightly darker than those pics. [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG] [​IMG]

    this one looks like 0.6 or 0.7 mm thick, whereas some of your other threads look thinner around 0.5 mm thick. the 0.6 / 0.7 looks better in my opinion. the 0.5 mm thick looks a little thin for the substantial leather work you do

    You have a very keen eye!

    I do use slightly different thread thicknesses in different instances - there are certain variables that all change in tandem to meet an aesthetic that I'm after. I've got a few different ways that I stitch, and they have different advantages and disadvantages. One isn't 'stronger' or anything, but they lay differently, and allow for different thread thicknesses.

    Sometimes it helps to have a thread that blends in and sometimes it's better to show subtle variation. Sometimes the back & front of the stitch needs to be a certain way, visually, and sometimes it doesn't.

    All have some advantages and disadvantages, and usually craftspeople tend to settle into one or the another. I just find use in all of them, so I practice both. I see a few others do the same, but most only stitch one way and keep it that way (which I respect and admire all the same - there's beauty in the repetition of a solitary action over a lifetime, it's where the battles of mastery are won.)

    I could go on and on about stitching - but perhaps it would keep me from the actual stitching :)

    Love the input though! The difference in thread diameter rarely is more than .1mm from piece to piece - usually somewhat incomprehensible to most. It's usually just below the range of perception for most - not that it's impossible to see. Very interesting that you picked up on it.
