Highlights from Hong Kong
Thank you all for your kind words and best wishes. I am improving now that the antibiotics are taking effect and I have stopped trying to cough up a lung. I'm catching up on sleep too so will soon be busy with the donation quilts again. If the heavy rain and floods continue in NSW and Qld again then quilts may well be needed very soon.
I'm also busy knitting beanies for adults as there will be a Homeless Connect Day in Melbourne in early March and I know that Sydney and Brisbane are also holding them again. The homeless are encouraged to attend and are able to find out about what services are available as well as being able to receive warm blankets, beanies, gloves, scarves and toiletry bags etc. The numbers required are fairly large so if anyone has time to knit a few beanies it would be a huge help. I'll be making more crocheted blankets to donate as well and I make the squares at every opportunity and can usually finish a blanket a week. I also have some fleece to make into quilts for the homeless and will get started with those very soon.
In the meantime I thought I'd post a few photos from our trip. We spent a day at the Flower Market in Hong Kong and the variety of flowers were amazing and they were so colourful. The orchids were fabulous and so large that they must be in ideal conditions. We also visited the Bird Market but didn't stay there long as we really don't like to see birds in cages. Birds and fish though seem to be popular when there is limited space for pets.
More to come soon.
hugs, Jan Mac
