The power returned just in time for me to finish stitching the rest of the quilt. Now to throw it on the quilting machine and do the actual quilting.
I love this piece...it has so much meaning for us right now:
We take a tree
Or many trees, as our own,
Respecting the stories they contain
And the lives they have led.
Of them we create a dwelling,
Made beautiful by their presence and strength
And we live within their warm embrace in a place called home.
