Thank heavens for daytime Olympic coverage! It's keeping me firmly in my seat and moving along on the quilt. I've found the stitching is so much better if I work during the day, in quality and progress. Probably a combination of better light (even though I use my Ott light in daylight as well as evening) and me being a bit fresher. Finally all of my earlier quilting has been picked out and replaced and I'm starting to get some traction on this project. Molly should have it by the time the heat really kicks in in Dallas!
I love to watch the Olympics but I'm not a fan of the prime-time packaging in the evening, with their cutting back and forth between events, holding the *big moments* until the last half hour. I may be the only one who didn't realize this until a few days ago, but in the U.S., all of the figure skating events are on, live, in their entirety, on their competiton days at 10:00 am EST on NBCSports channel. (Which, I might add, I had never heard of and didn't realize we even had in our cable package of x-hundreds of channels that we are forced to pay for but never watch. Finally getting some return on that!!) Many other events are broadcast live throughout the overnight, because of the time difference, and easy to DVR.
Now that I've already caught the Men's Finals today, we can settle in this evening and get back to seeing what Congressman Frank Underwood's been up to. The upside to all of this snow and cold is at least I'm not feeling guilty about sitting in front of the TV for hours under a quilt. That said, I'm off to a late afternoon yoga class now. Ok, maybe a little guilty.
Stay warm this weekend!
