Notes on block: I completed this block last night while watching television. It was a nice quiet evening of stitching—just lovely.
Today saw the inauguration of the United States’ 44th president, Barack Obama. The feelings of hope and excitement are near palpable. It will be interesting to see the changes and progress in the years ahead. I’m feeling pretty hopeful right now.
