The Last Finish And Post of 2014

I managed to finish this up very late last night during a marathon of The West Wing. I adore that show. It is very well done and honestly, I really do wish more TV had that kind of substance. 

All told, I am closing out 2014 with a total of 19 finishes, which beats my non official yearly goal of one finish a month. This pleases me and give me hope that I will be able to do the same next year :). Of the 19 finishes, 6 are Mirabilia finishes. Yay!
