Penny and Karen (daughter and mother)

We even had a good number of brave husbands who attended.
Del's husband Don who is actually the Treasurer for AHQ and Martin, Lyn's husband
Here is what everyone "volunteered" for - Hee Hee.
And just a warning to the others who attended. I know there are other photos floating around and feel free to share them but I reserve the right to remove any I don't like.
After all I hate photos! LOL

The other night Karen, in her Friend of the Day post gave us the following tip -
There has been a lot of interest in it and some people wanted more information so here goes.

Aussie Quilt Hero Makers,
I am currently serving with the 7RAR TG overseas.
Two of the members of my cell have received hero quilts and washing bags.
I wanted to take this opportunity to say thank you to you and your team for making the quilts and bags.
Both members were very excited to receive them and showed them around with great delight.
The effort you have put in has improved morale and made at at least 2 soldiers away from their families very happy.
One for Ruth.
I would really like to thanks Aussie Hero Quilts. It is a wonderful organisation, as are the volunteers. A special thanks to the quilter from Victoria for the quilt and laundry bag sent recently. It is very appreciated and it lets us know that there are people back home who think about us over here. It has started to snow near the mountains so it won't be long until that reaches us so the quilt has already come in handy with the minus temperatures.
The laundry bag I am keeping for use at home! Thanks again and keep doing what you are doing.
I really appreciate the fact that they obviously went to some effort to get this photo - thank you!
The handsome fellow on the right is the recipient in this case but the other handsome fellow on the left has also received a quilt in the past and sent in a photo.
