In the pink.....

 and sitting pretty, as the saying goes *VBS* Feeling much better today, still some arm stiffness, but so much better.
 Best of all is that I can report and add UFO #3 (which is my 2nd finish!) to my NYE UFO Challenge list! It took all of my 'stick-to-it', but I finished up the binding around 9 last evening...and was glad to be done! Here's a peek at one corner and part of the backing. Four chunks of flannel got used to make the backing, and I'm glad it's gone! It's been in my flannel stash way too long!
 
Another look at most of the width and the other end of the backing. This one is a Christmas gift(family member) and is about 60" X 80". A little big for a snuggle quilt,but there is plenty to tuck under. I'm back to machine quilting another that I pinned on Monday or Tuesday, again, a smaller one. Looks like I'm leaving those two big ones for last.
The challenge is going well, with lots of you reporting finishes!! It's awesome to think about how many UFOs we could finish up in such a brief period of time. If you haven't noticed we got a new player yesterday *VBS* Yup, Sue, From the Magpie's Nest, decided she could finish a couple of things on her list, and jumped in with a goal of 4. There are 5 weeks plus left in the challenge, I'm sure we can all meet our goals and start next year with less baggage!

I like your use for leftover binding pieces. May use that myself. I keep putting them away in a shoe box, thinking I'll use them to bind a quilt, but very rarely put them to use that way.

I could do with a quilt like that here. Brrr and wet! Sorry to read about your flu jab. Sometimes they're fine and sometimes they're not.
