I was very surprised to receive a letter inviting me to attend a presentation ceremony by my local Member of Parliament recently. Along with 6 others I was recognized for my volunteer work overseas in East Timor. The other recipients had participated in varying projects to improve the quality of life in other countries and we were all very pleased to have our small contributions acknowledged.
I'm off to the US tomorrow where I'm attending the Houston Quilt Show with some other Aussie quilters. Then we are spending 3 weeks traveling in the US and meeting up with some internet friends. I've been hoping for this trip for over 2 years and it's hard to believe that the time has come.
Thanks for your kind comments on my blogs and Amanda I'll post a tutorial on my crochet squares when I return at the end of Nov. Sorry that I've run out of time until then. In the meantime I'll try to keep my blog updated with our adventures. One thing I know for sure is that we will be having fun as my fellow travelers are entertaining and lots of laughs.
Stay safe everyone.
Hugs Jan Mac
