Big Figure #7 Finished!

What a difference a week makes!  I am back to my normal self, and had a very productive week.

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 also managed to do some "office" work.  I have updated my website and have sent in entries to several shows.  All in all, a good week!

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!

That quilt is a beautiful creation. The aquas and grays are such a nice calm contrast to the bright red.

as usual your quilting stitch is mesmerizing. It lets the color and line shine.
