Good morning friends! I hope this blog post finds you well and doing the best you can through these days of uncertainty.
We are doing well here at our home in Cornville, AZ. We have been making leather and beadworks and I have been playing in my garden, mostly in the mornings because it is so very hot. River (our fur baby) and I play ball when it’s early morning and the heat hasn’t set in yet.
River is a real joy for us ! ❤ So grateful he is here with us. He has been part of our family about a year now. What a sweet boy! We love him so much! ❤
John and I are are staying busy with our leather and beads. We are so grateful for creativity 🙂 in our lives. Today I would like to show you just a few of our ready to ship items we have added to our Etsy shop. These small leather medicine bags can be found in our section Ready to ship pouches.

It’s a beautiful day with mostly sunshine after a few days of rain. What a blessings to hear the rain on the roof and the thunder beings were around too! I really appreciate it when the rain comes. We have needed it for some time now.
The parsley is still growing in the garden. It will be here all winter. That is also a blessing. This year I brought the basil plant in and it loves being inside. It makes the soups I make taste so good.
We got a lot of creating done this week. I did several beadworks. That was fun. Here are a couple small bags I did. Also a four directions beaded cedar bag.
These are all done in buckskin leather . The first two medicine pouches are beaded directly to the leather. The beaded cedar bag has a four directions beadwork on the front. It has double cut fringe off the bottom. Whenever I make these for my customers they choose where they would like the colors because for every tribe it is different.
It’s a busy week here at Thunder Rose Leather. This is one of the bags we finished up and sent out. I had a good time beading the Thunderbird on this pipe bag. As you can see this is a full set featuring a beaded Thunderbird pipe bag , a tobacco bag and a medicine pouch.
This pipe bag features double cut fringe off the bottom of the bag, a beaded Thunderbird and it is decorated with red glass crow beads. The closure is a braided double drawstring.
This is a picture of the sacred tobacco pouch and the medicine pouch. The tobacco bag has an antler tip closure and is decorated with red glass crow beads. The medicine bag is a double drawstring pouch and is decorated with red glass crow beads. For more information please follow the links to our website.
This beaded Thunderbird is all hand sewn by me. Once I have sewn the beadwork onto the bag I lace around it , as you can see in the picture. This gives the beadwork an extra dimension of standout beauty.
Wow ! What a month. First check this out. We have had 2 big snow storms this month. That is a record breaker for us. Yesterday, the sun started to show again. Once again, this fine morning, the sun has come in in all his glory.
Just to show you the second snowstorm looked like this. It actually snowed for 2 days. It does melt off pretty fast here in Arizona. 🙂
The little birds were waiting in the tree for the bird feeder to get full. I love watching these little winged ones. ❤
During all this weather we have been beading and sewing. Here a couple bags that are a little bigger than our usual medicine bags. They are 5 inches tall x 3 inches wide with a drawstring closure. They come in a variety of colors and if you prefer a neck strap , no problem. These are new in our Etsy shop.
It’s been a busy week of beading. Beading is an absolute awesome way to center your mind and focus your attention. When beading all I can do is the one thing, well of course I usually put on some background music so I do listen to music. It’s a blessing to be able to do this art. The journey started for me a little more than 30 years ago.
This is the beadwork work in progress I showed you last week. It started with a Thunderbird. I put the beaded Thunderbird on a small leather pouch.
This amulet bag would be perfect for a special stone, crystal , medicine or keepsake. There are as many uses for these kinds of bags.
My work in progress this week is a beaded rainbow turtle. I have finished the turtle and am working on the bag. The bag is also going to have linear beadwork down the sides. Coming soon! 🙂 Here is a picture of the turtle.
The beginning of a work in progress beaded Thunderbird bag.
This is the beginning of a work in progress beaded medicine pouch. I just finished this and love the way it turned out. It’s going to look cool on the saddle tan leather bag I make. I will show that finished work later on.
Another beaded favorite that I finished up is this beaded medicine bag that is ready to ship on our website.
This small necklace amulet bag is beaded directly to the leather. You can find it on our website thunderroseleather.com
