Inauguration brings sewing time...

Since I live in Washington, DC and am a school teacher, I got a four day weekend!  Which can only mean one thing... uninterrupted crafting time! I have been as busy as a bee finishing up some projects from my resolution list and I even had enough time to celebrate the inauguration of our 44th president!  
First I'll start by showing you some projects that I have finished ...

The first picture is a door stop. I used Oh Fransson's tutorial.  I just love the way it turned out and it was super easy.  

The next two pictures are of a quilt I started probably 7 years ago (when I was still in college).  I had pieced it way back then but had never got to quilt it because it was so large (fits a queen).  Since my resolution list included finishing all old projects, I knew this would be my first to tackle.  I have to say I didn't quite piece it together that well (which I noticed as I quilted) but overall I love the way it has turned out.  I feel a sense of accomplishment and I still love the combination of fabrics.  Too bad it is too "girly" as my boyfriend likes to put it, he wont let me put it on our bed.  I will have to wait to get a bigger place and show case it in the guest bedroom.  I had another picture of a baby quilt but for some reason my computer is acting up... i'll have to show you another day.  

I also wanted to share with you my Obama cake that I made for my friend Anne Marie's bday.  Her birthday was today, inauguration day but we celebrated on Sunday after going to the massive concert at the Lincoln Memorial.  Unfortunately my computer isn't quite cooperating so I'll try tomorrow.  

Hope everyone had a great inauguration day!
