When I got to the end of the quilt I had to roll back and unpick some of the terrible quilting at the beginning (tension problems and general wonkiness) but not as much as I feared so it didn't take too long to repair. I've now loaded on the next quilt which is the Blue & White China Quilt. This is an ancient project which I think actually pre-dates this blog so prior to 2007. I've never quilted it because it's a framed medallion style quilt and I always felt to do it properly, it should have special border quilting in all the panels and as it is enormous that would take the rest of my life. It's been on my guilt list for years and I've finally decided to just bung it on the frame and quilt an all-over panto pattern and then it will at least be done.
On the knitting front, I've done a bit more on my Latvian Mitten. I'm getting on alright with it now but still unable to achieve an even texture while stranding four colours in a row, so it's a bit lumpy. I'm sure once it's blocked and gets worn, it will look better. It's sure going to be warm because it's so thick with all that stranding. These aren't my colours, they are what came in the kit.
I've started building the next little scene-in-a-tin kit, this one is called Countryside Notes and is a summer scene. It has fewer elements than the winter scene I did first, so is an easier build. It's a similar theme: a building with furniture, in an outdoor setting with trees and flowers. This one has a little garden scene which will go on the right of the building.
