A Special Day And A Finish

OMGosh yesterday was such a special day. I went to my stitching group but I was glued to the TV. Watching the inauguration festivities. I don't think that I even got my stitching out. It was a day filled with hope for so many of us of a brighter future. Good luck President Obama....you certainly have your work cut out for you. We are behind your and are ready for the change you promised. I think that it is wonderful to see a young and loving family in Washington again. God bless the USA!
Now on to other business. I made the BOM Seasons from The Country Loft for a friend for Christmas. I finished it at the very last minute (as usual). I didn't even take pictures of it. So I borrow some from my friends blog. I have one for me almost finished too. I love it. Here are the borrowed pictures of it.

I have to finish the stitchery on the bird block and the words for the fall section of my quilt. I put two borders on my friends quilt instead of the scrappy homespun. I am not sure how I am going to finish mine yet. I am off to do some much needed cleaning today after my very loooong weekend. I will chat soon.

The festivities were something to behold. So many people were crowded into that area to experience the inauguration.
Good that you got to photograph the gift quilt that you gave away. Not only for your own records but for us to enjoy.
