Valentine's Day 2002

It was an especially quiet day today. I made chicken pot
pie from las tnight's leftovers and then chicken noodle
soup. John went over to the other house and did some
cleanup. We lost several of the big cottonwoods down the
driveway but I mourn most the loss of the hawthorn which I
always considered my tree. I took photographs of it last
year when it was in full bloom and often used cuttings of
the red berries in fall bouquets. I'll miss it.

I finished the eagle block and sewed all of the blocks I've
made together for the American Spirit quilt. Next is the
border with flowers, leaves, vines, stars and "united we
stand" appliqued on it followed by a narrow blue border and
then a wider red one. I have focused on completely
finishing this top before starting another as I don't want
to add to my store of uncompleted tops. I have finishing
quilting Millennium Garden on my list for this month too.
