Here is another version of a shilling coin ring. I made this one by punching out the center and hammering it into shape on a mandrel. It is a size 7.5. It is sterling silver. Made back when currency was actually backed by precious metals.

I just finished a cute pair of bloomers. I started with Simplicity pattern # 2777, but made quite a few adjustments. The waistband and leg bands are elastic with the band on the inside of the leg and in the waistband. I added a cute little black bow and some lace down the front leg seam.
These are a size 22, and suprisingly not too bulky like other ones I have seen. Sometimes they can end up looking like giant diapers.

I have finished the leather tool kit that was a trade with my cousin Steve for an Indian Head ring ring. He makes beautiful one of a kind jewelry seen here here. The leather was originally white, bit
I dyed it mahogany. I used a recycled leather belt, also dyed, that has
"super star" embossed into it, and a zippered pouch for what-nots.
I kinda love this thing. All sewn on my indusrial machine.
