      Great work and patience needed to pull off these smaller toys. You did a fantastic job! I really like them.

      Nice precise work Alex, as always from you.

      I also find Celtic these designs fascinating due to their intricacy and geometrical symmetry but I doubt I have your patience to cut them!

      Well done!
