At the White House, under the portrait of George Washington and standing right next to our First Lady, Michelle Obama, it’s Judy Fardig, volunteer extraordinaire and chapter leader of Organizing for America.
She’s wearing the dress I made just for this occasion.
Next to Michelle is Mary Sorteberg, wife of Oregon’s Senator Jeff Merkely. At Judy’s wedding 45 years ago, a 5 year old Mary was the flower girl. Next to Mary, you know him, but I’ll say it anyway, our President, Barack Obama.
Beautiful Judy in a close up so you can see the dress.
Piecing, applique and beading, each and every stitch sewn with love and appreciation for our 44th president and first lady.
The White House was decked out in full Christmas regalia, the Marine Corps Band was in attendance. Beautiful!
Needless to say, I am over the moon!
Thank you Judy, it’s been such a thrill to have been part of such a wonderful event.
And to all of you who take the time to read my blog, thank you!
I send wishes for the happiest of holidays and a most wonderful 2017.
