Home Safely

I'm sorry for the long absence on my blog and plan to catch up on all my news and travels over the next few days. Unfortunately I brought home an unwanted souvenir from China- a chest infection. We arrived home Monday and I've spent the past few days just sleeping and waiting for the antibiotics to take effect. I have also been quietly crocheting more squares for blankets for the homeless as well as knitting a baby jacket to donate.
I received a lovely parcel of blocks from an anonymous quilter in Vic and they will make some lovely quilts or gifts to donate. Cat from NZ also sent some more wonderful orphan blocks as well as some more fabric from her clean-out of her sewing room and they will also make some more quilts to donate.
We had a wonderful trip although it was tiring and very cold with temperatures if -7 to -12 and I had a chest infection for the last 2 weeks so it's taking time to get rid of the cough. I plan to start sewing again very soon, hopefully tomorrow so I can get started on this year's donated quilts.
I've really missed my blogging friends and will post more trip photos soon.
It's great to be home again.
Hugs, Jan Mac
