Thank you from a recipient!

I received an email today that I just had to share with you - if this doesn't warm the cockles of your heart and encourage you in your sewing nothing will.


I just wanted to send a massive thank you to everyone one involved with the Aussie Hero Quilts. I am the very proud owner of a lovely quilt and a new laundry bag. The quilt is fantastic, with lots of different pieces of fabric, my favourites are the lizards on one panel and kangaroos and koalas on another. It has really come in handy lately, as the heater has stopped working and the room is freezing during the night. The laundry bag is much better than the one I was using previously. It has seen better days on previous deployments. It really stands out amongst the other plain pillow cases and green bags. I have even started seeing other laundry bags that are similar to mine, so there are a few other guys over here that have them too. It is the best feeling to receive mail, but when it is such a lovely gift from the people back home that do not know you but support you, the feeling is even more special. I will treasure both my quilt and laundry bag and they will follow me everywhere for the rest of my military career. Again, words will never be able to express how special I felt to receive these beautiful gifts. All I can do is to say a heartfelt thank you to everyone involved.

I think that says it all!  

Till next time...............keep spreading the word and happy stitching!

That is just fantastic feedback for you Jan-Maree...it's so nice to know that the guys 'n' gals appreciate the work...and mention was even made about 'others' having bags similar to his (I presume it's a he!) so we'll have to really make sure we don't send too many laundry bags the same hey? lol
