I was so overwhelmed last night watching the election coverage. I couldn’t hold it in. The tears started flowing down my cheeks at about 11pm and didn’t stop till after the President elects’ powerful and amazing acceptance speech. I cried for Mr. McCain who fought a good fight and was so humble and poised. I cried for all of the people who worked so hard for the Republican campaign and how disappointed they must feel. I cried for African American and minority citizens of this great country who must be feeling triple of anything that I was feeling. I can never pretend to know what this election means to them.
Okay I AM a Republican and after MUCH MUCH MUCH painstaking deliberation voted as such, but who can not be moved to tears and so very proud of Mr. Obama and his family? When they annouced last night, ” Ladies and Gentleman, the new first family of the United States,” and this was the image we saw:
There are just no words. I am in awe. History in the making and to be alive to see it!!!! May God bless this man, our new President, and his family. May God guide him and be with him. Amen.
On the quilt-y front. I worked on machine quilting a new Christmas table runner. I used a pattern out of American Patchwork and Quilting magazine and Peace on Earth jelly roll from Moda.:
FABULOUS NOTIONABLES #6
For this project I used these little 2 1/2″ Stripers rulers, perfect for jelly roll strips. You can make many different blocks with the three templates included. Love em! I will put them up on the Quilt N Go website when I go into work tomorrow if you want em and can’t find em.
I also tried my hand at “echoing” around the letters in my Let It Snow quilt. Yikes it’s harder than it looks!!
HAHAHAHA it kind of looks like I tried to quilt left handed with a blind fold on!!!! Go ahead laugh…get it all out. =)~ Guess I better stick to meandering for now. hehehe
Have a great day people! Later Gators, Melissa
