kittykill-those bunnies looks so delicious!  I thought they were real chocolate at first glance!

gaudiknight-Thats a lovely knit blanket.  I love the smokey grey color. 

I'm still slowly knitting some socks.  If they turn out as lovely as i am invisioning they will be sent to my mom for mothers day.   I had no idea how skinny sock yarn would be though!

Love the star wars bag and the baby blanket is so pretty!   Cheesy

Thanks for the pattern link!  I just downloaded it.  I love that its worsted and ankle length!   This might be the pattern that gets me over the fear of sock making.    Cheesy

Just started rooting my Dunmer doll for a break from swap items. Starting back on swap items though so I can send them out by next week.

Thanks everyone for the sweet comments!  Smiley It keeps me making more hehe.

Kittykill love those chocolate bunnies! They look so real and delicious!

Gaudi - that blanket looks so luxurious, the baby will love to be wrapped up in it.

So I have somewhat sad news. It seems I have developed a case of carpal tunnel in my right wrist  Cry Probably due to a years worth of intense bag making among other things. Guess I'll need to slow down on that a bit. So annoying to want to craft but not being able to because it hurts.

Oh, sheepblue, that sucks!
I was beginning to suffer from that, enough to occasionally wear a support brace, then I changed jobs. I'd been a register jockey/shelver for years in a busy bookstore. And now it doesn't bother me anymore. Maybe a good rest will help? Any way for you to just work on the patches, and draft someone else to sew them together and make the straps? Not the same, I know! I hope your wrist feels better soon.

hi guys

I "purchased" a class on craftsy during a free week trial, so have been spending my spare time watching a free motion quilting class. It was great, but I had heaps to catch up in here!

Love the choc bunnies and the TM bag. Every time I see one of those bags sheep blue I want to make one too, but I can't think what theme I want to do. I am a nerd about so many things... Books, tv shows, movies.

I did make a dress for me to wear to hospital when I have the baby. I have a bit of adjusting to do and I'll take a pic.

Looking for teal/turquoise/aqua, grey and white (or a combo) fabric for a quilt.

Gaudiknight, what an elaborate and elegant baby blanket.

Waggonswest, I like your Irish quilt. It is bright and lovely.

Sheepblue, this bag is wonderful. I adore the Ewok. I'm sorry about your wirst. My husband had it and "cured" it with rest. He noticed that he has to pay attention not to bend his wrist when working on the computer. I hope this helps.

Carolmb, don't sweat the small stuff. Who cares if you tied the knots inside? They won't remove it to inspect the inside and it's very pretty on the outside.

I made some Easter Lace eggs.
