This is my third trip here and it great to see after all this time, we still have so much support from back home....
As the quilt was unexpected, I didn't know about the laundry bags.
I am so grateful for the quilt that I could not ask for a laundry bag. Its not that I wouldn't like one, I just think the time used to make one for me, could be used to make one for someone who has not yet received such a beautiful gift.
Thank you and keep up the great work.
Every thing is going well over here. We made it through the winter warm and safe (thanks to Gumnut Quilters). I have done two winters over here now and by far this one was the coldest.
My team and I are quite busy at the moment as we are getting ready to conduct a hand over with the new team. After 6.5 months, we are all looking forward to getting home. ( only to face another winter) When we return to Australia/Sydney, the four of us (he and his family) will make a visit to your club.
I cannot say thank you enough for all the effort you lovely people put in. Also a special thank you to everyone that has worked on my daughter's quilt. She was in hospital for most of the week due to an unknown virus. Its the first time one of my children have been admitted to hospital and I have to say it was probably one of the hardest weeks I have experienced over here.
You're trained to deal with a lot of things prior to coming over here, but when it comes to family back home, you feel so helpless. Thankfully I have such a beautiful and supportive wife who has helped put my mind at ease. My daughter is out of hosiptal now and recovering just in time for her birthday. She turns 1 on the 13th of May.
Attached are a few photos that I have been meaning to send, plus one of my little girl in hospital. Feel free to use the photos for your blog.
My wife knows about the quilt and she is also very thankful.
