First, I finished quilting Big Figure #7, which had been in progress when I got sick. I even finished the facing! My New Years resolution is to do the finishing work right after I finish quilting. Otherwise, I get ready to show a quilt and arrrrgghhhhh! It needs the facing, sleeve and binding attached. I'm going to try very hard to avoid those little crises.

I have discovered that it is much more fun doing the finishing work, which I find very tedious, if you have something fun on the television. I am fully immersed in the Olympics. And thanks to my DVR, I can enjoy the non-headlining sports (like biathalon, ski jumping and cross country skiing) at my leisure. Ahhh, technology! It's grand!
I'm linking this post to Nina-Marie's Off the Wall Friday, Richard and Tanya's Quilts Link a Finish Friday and Crazy Mom Quilts Finish it up Friday. Go see all the wonderful work there!
HAPPY VALENTINE'S DAY!
