11 quilts and 31 laundry bags for 2013 and
957 quilts and 1410 laundry bags overall!
Please note - I cannot take any more requests for personnel leaving Afganistan in March - it is getting too close to get quilts off to them as mail is too unreliable.
Now, on with the Quilts of the Week. Bearing in mind that this is still only the 4th of January and lots of people are still on holidays, and I shared some quilts on Monday night to finish off 2012, I think we have done pretty well this week.
Belinda - I just had to show you a close up of the quilting! This is Belinda's first Aussie Hero Quilt.
Great job everyone!
The thank you messages are rolling in as all the quilts we sent for Christmas have arrived. Please do not be disheartened if you do not receive a thank you message - lots of the guys have been extremely busy, long hours, little time off and often limited internet and email access - particularly the more junior guys and girls. Just take it from me that all our quilts and laundry bags are being appreciated. One of the reasons for sharing the thank you messages on the blog is to show how much our things are treasured, even if not everyone who receives one can send a message or a photo.
One for Lesley who made the quilt and Karen B who made the Laundry Bag
Till next time................keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
