Return of the pictures and how time marches on

Posted in General on January 13th, 2018 by The Cyberwolfe

The Wife pointed out to me that the pictures in a number of the earliest posts had somehow disappeared. Going back through from the admin side and editing those posts allowed me to recover what appears to have been minor corruption.

In doing so, however, I ran into a great example of how leather ages. Back in May 2008 I made my Pirate-themed needle case and left the project un-dyed. Here we are (most of) ten years later, and you can see how the leather has darkened.

The original photo:

Ten years ago

…and ten years after:

Pirate Needle Case

This hasn’t darkened as much as it could have in that time, since it generally stays inside my tool bag and doesn’t get a lot of sun exposure.

The big take-away here is that I built that ten freaking years ago.
