Thanks!

Thankfully I faced my fears about stippling and zips, and have stippled this table runner and now I just need to hand sew the binding on. I've practiced with zips in the hope I can make some cute little makeup bags for the boys to donate to the mothers day stall from this sweet pattern from Nikki.

Thank you for blogging friends with this stunning scarf and art card arriving from Catherine. Thanks Catherine! Maya hasn't pinched it yet to "make her bear cosy".

And thank goodness, the braces are coming off!!! I'm counting down to the Orthodontist appointment next month. Hooray!!

Although I free motion machine quilt I have yet to conquer the zipper! Great job on both. I think Maya must enjoy packages arriving as much as Mom does. :o)

Love the table runner - the colours are stunning and well done on the stippling. Glad you like the scarf and I love the photo of you and Maya. Guess you are counting down the days until the braces come off.

Yay! That's good that you've faced those fears! I should do zippers more often I think! The stippling doesn't scare me so much anymore. A photo!? Wow! It's a beautiful one! Hope you enjoy the countdown to no braces!

See, I told you it really isn't that scary! The stippling looks great and the zippy purse - woo hoo! Love the scarf too - lucky gals.

Your stippling is very even - I'm kind of jealous!

And an early congratulations on getting your bracers off. Your teeth will feel so weird and smooth once they're gone! But you must be counting down the days I bet :D
