While Attending the Inauguration

I spent most of the day attending the inauguration but from time to time I worked on machine appliquing two different sets of blocks. Just did a couple of the ones below the other day and added some more - most of them still in need of centers. I like the colors in these. Below are some of the batik blocks that have been hanging on the wall in the basement for quite a long time now in need of applique. Most of them are finished now and will be ready to be sewn into rows and have a border added. Altogether there are twenty of these blocks.Tonight I also spent some time at the Neighborhood Ball. Did you see Barack and Michelle dance as Beyonce sang? They look like they are very much in love - a beautiful couple. I think this has been a very emotional day for so many people. It's like there is hope in the air - people are anticipating change. A truly historic day. (Click to enlarge)
