Standby to Receive
Just to let you know that there are bound to be more requests coming in over the next two months as people arrive for the Christmas deployment. If you are working on a quilt, or have one finished, can you please let me know. To save you all from contacting me these are the ladies who I know have quilts finished and ready to go -
Lorraine, Alison, Hillary, Rae, Cat, Jill and Linda.
If you have a completed quilt and you are not on that list, or it you are up to the binding even, can you please let me know and preferably send me a photo. Additionally I know there are some of you who have made quilt tops and are not on the list but as some people take weeks and weeks to turn a quilt top in to a quilt (and that is fine) I don't count quilt tops as completed quilts so if your quilt top has turned into a quilted quilt please let me know.
Now for those that like to include a little extra in your boxes here is a suggestion. Chris from WA has sewn some Christmas decorations to include with her parcels and this is a great idea.
Last year I sent the lovely Warrant Officer (the first Aussie Hero) a small Christmas tree ($9 from K mart) and $8 for postage. I got the children from my son's school to make some decorations and write some cards and they were so gorgeous.
I will definitely be including some tinsel, particularly pink for the girls, in parcels that I send from October on. A little Christmas cheer is always appreciated.
This is just a thought - let me know what you think.
Till next time................keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
