Birthday gift for my father

Leather strap for my father
I made a leather strap for my father, as a birthday gift.
It took very long time for hand stitching. It's very simple.

Leather strap for my father
I usually feel difficult to make something for my father, because he doesn't put anything on him. All he has is his cell phone, keys and the wallet.
So I made it. In future, if I can make more detailed item with leather, I'd like to make a wallet for him.

Chicken ham
This is a salad what I made today.
I made the ham with breast chickens also. It's very easy.

Put a spoon of sugar and salt on two or three pieces of chicken breasts. Put them in a plastic bag and put it in the fridge for one-two days.
Then, wash them under running water and put in water for 30 minutes.
And wrap them well with plastic wrap making the shape of ham, and put them in boiled water. If you want to add some seasonings or herbs, put them on the wrap before roll the chicken.
After 5-10 minutes, turn off the stove and leave them in the pot till they cool down.
That's all!
I like them because they are healthy and very cheap.

Amazing your handstiching! Hard word and so neat!

Such a lovely little strap, more so because it is done by hand. Did you need to pre-punch every hole for the stitches or did you just use the needle with the thread and push it through each time?

I too want to wish your dad a very Happy Birthday. If my dad were alive, he'd be 100 in Dec.
Thanks for the healthy recipe and I agree that the strap is very well made.

It’s interesting how they will carry out the initiation of steps for proper implementation of the initiative for government recognition.
