An update after my short absence...........

Well, it has been an interesting month since my last post.  My sister Christine passed away after complications with Kidney  and other organ failure due to Type1 Diabetes.  It was a very sad and stressful time for my family as Mr J and I were getting ready to go on holidays. There was a lot of organizing to have the funeral before we left on the Friday, and mixed emotions when we caught the plane on Sunday morning (Mothers day).
Mr J and I flew to New York to start our months holiday, what a fantastic city. We had a hotel booked in 49th Street just around the corner of Time Square.  You can have a look at our Travel blog (link on this Blog page) for more info and photos and posts .
We caught a train to Lancaster to spend 4 days at Intercourse also known as Crossed Keys. I have a couple of photos of some Patchwork and Quilting Shops to tease you. All the shops are within 8km of each other.

Will catch up with more photos when we return home.

Until then Cathy

  1. Hi! I am pleased to discover your blog. So sad to hear about your sister - my husband also has diabetes and it is such an insidious disease. I only live about 2 hours from Lancaster (perhaps less!) and have NEVER visited the quilt shops there. I've been to shops all over the U.S. so your photos are showing me it might be time explore some close to home.


Thank you for visiting, your comment is appreciated.
