630 for 7pm.
t's close to the train station for those travelling by public transport and it has lots of parking.
We can chat to our hearts content and won't disturb anyone.
How about some thank you messages seeing as I can't show you pictures - first for Julie Ann
Thank you very much and your ladies do a great job.
I just received my laundry bag in the mail, with the assorted goodies.
Thanks very much - it's awesome.
Was shocked to see it had my name on it, very touched as well.
Can you please pass on my thanks. It is truly one of the nicest gifts I can recall receiving....ever...it really is that special.
One for the Fabric Happiness Fairies..
Do you remember Diane's bright beautiful double sided quilt?
You can refresh your memory but checking it out here if you like.
Dear Dianne I received your quilt today, it's beautiful.
I can appreciate the work you put into it even though it is not one of my strong points. The patience that would be required is mind blowing, personally, I would be lucky get out a small napkin. I love the colours too, while the landscape is beautiful over here it is exactly what you see in pictures..
My job is logistics in country, it is constant day in day out routine keeping up with requests from our dependencies. Never a boring day had so far and the challenges are ongoing. Having come from the top end I am freezing, I expect to look like a Michelin man shortly when the coats and pants come out.
It is a great honour to serve the country and the thoughtful gifts the many women/men sent are appreciated. As a soldier and a mother I can't tell you how fortunate I feel being born in Australia, grateful everyday.
Thank you again
For something a little different, Cat recently made a couple of gorgeous Stack and Slash Star Quilts and an interesting modern quilt. If you want to know what I am talking about you will need to go to her blog, but you should go anyway as she has been kind enough to write tutorials for both of them and they are worth checking out - here and here
Thanks so much Cat.
Seeing I can't show you any pictures I thought I would paint some pictures for you - some pictures of the appreciation for what we do that comes across in the requests I receive.
. Some people here in my work place told me about the quilts and laundry bags they have received from you, and I am very interested. They quilts are just lovely and would come in handy as it is really starting to get quite cold here, and I still have 4 months left on my tour.
Anything you could send over would be lovely, as well as a nice reminder of my time here.
May I please request one of you spectacular Aussie Hero Quilts. My boss and a couple of workmates received them and they are awesome.
And sometimes, not even a request but a thank you without asking for anything. This in response to one of Michelle's gorgeous quilts.
I work with XXXXXXXXX and just saw the fabulous quilt and laundry bag that he received and would like to compliment you and your team on such a wonderful gesture. XXXXX raves about the quality and workmanship on the quilt and laundry bag.
He doesn't usually brag much about anything, however, XXXXX is extremely proud and humbled by the wonderful gift that you sent him.
Anyway, I just wanted to pass on some feedback to you that you have made XXXXX's deployment that little bit easier knowing that there are people thinking of the guys and girls over here.
Kindest regards and thanks again,
Photos tomorrow night I hope.
Till next time..............keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
