Now how did I manage to post at reply 3 times?

 

Multiple posts is a really irritating flaw in the FPN software. Just edit the duplicates by deleting all the content and typing DELETED in the post. Then at least people won't have to read repeated content. That's what I do when it happens to me.

That is one nice looking pen wrap... Embroidered silk?

 

Yes, and the outside is a tan suede material (some sort of synthetic, I believe). It can be seen in the flap at the bottom.

I've noticed multiple posts often occur in a busy thread. You've uploaded your text and it doesn't appear; you do it again, thinking something went wrong... and there it is, twice! I think it happens if you're posting almost simultaneously with another member. I've learned to just refresh the page first, to see if my post magically appears... still not fail-safe, but it helps.

KBeezie, you might like the pen wraps that Lou makes. His username is Trillium here. He made a case that I bought at the Atlanta pen show last year, and has many oriental-inspired fabric choices. I love my wrap.

Wow! Would you happen to have a link for that? I tried some Google searching but "Chan's Handwork" (perhaps unsurprisingly) brings up loads of other things.
