Sorry it took a while

My DH came home sick from vacation with the flu and due to that I had to do everything here at home alone, so not much time behind the computer. I have been stitching a bit and have finished the birthdayexchange for the Robin's Nest. Now only finish it in a little something from fabric out of my stash. Also have to finish up the House exchange and than I can send them out next week. Now I am going to start the redwork exchange for SBEBB, I already know what to stitch and how I want to finish it. Now just finding the time to pic up the fabrics and thread and finish it.
Quilting wise: I have finished block h7 and g7 from the big dj and c3 from the pillow dj which is totally done from fabrics out of my stash. I will show pics later this week.

Now about my vacation. It was very nice to be with my family. Only if there would have been snow. There really wasn't much. We could ski and do some cross country skiing, but you get up high in the hills to do it. Most of the days I have played and walked with my little nephew. On thursday my father and nephew got sick with the flu. We decided to go home friday instead of saturday and on our way home my DH and brother became sick. So I had to drive all the way home and my DH was sitting next to me getting sicker and sicker. I have to say than a 11 hour drive is a bit to much for one person. Just called home and now my mother has the flu. I am likely to not get it as I got the flushott, but you never know. I am keeping my fingers crossed.
Also on wednesday one of the colleagues of my mother that travelled with us had a little break in her scapula (I at least think it is called scapula in english), so she had to go see the doctor).
But in all I had a restfull vacation in which I did a lot of reading. I have finished Deja Death from Kathy Reichs and also a book from Elizabeth George, the last one I think with inspector lynley.

I have to go now to be with the patient. Talk to you all later.

I'm glad you didn't get the flu! I look forward to the DJ pics, when you have time.

Hope your DH gets over the flu quickly. That can be so nasty and make you feel so horrible. Good luck with your projects.

Sorry for your DG....and sorry for you for the overload ! LOL.
The flu can be very bad, but I know how you may feel : when my DH is feeling bad, he's just "a poor little thing"... fortunately, women are stronger and can face (almost) everything ! Take it easy and keep working on your beautiful projects !

Smiles !

So sorry that so many people in your family have the flu. Make sure you take care of yourself too while you are taking care of them.
