  1. You're a busy little monkey...as always. When I read you weren't happy with
    the quilting and unpicked it, I thought how I'm like that too. This baby blanket with
    248 sts has a rows unpicked several times now because I wasn't happy. I feel your
    pain....or gain. lol By the looks of your outdoor pics, you are having the same weather as
    us. It is weird today hey?
    Cheers, Anita.

  2. The quilt is beautiful, I can imagine how hard it was to unpick all that stitching but I can understand that feeling when a project just doesn't sit right, it's something I couldn't live with either. Love the sneaky peak at your secret sewing.
