Thank you very much for the quilt and laundry bag. I had not brought with me many creature comforts as I am required to travel a lot, so I was genuinely surprised with how happy I felt when able to place the quilt over my bed. I should not have dismissed so readily the effect something so homely could have, and the fact it is pink and pastels has actually lifted the room from an austere 'anyone lives here' to 'a woman lives here'.
It is great that you are putting your craft skills to such a lovely cause, and I hope that you continue to do so. My daughter will inherit this quilt as a memento of my deployment when I come home. Kind regards,
Hello Fran Thank you very much for my beautiful quilt and laundry bag. It brightens up my bed and it will come in handy when the weather get cold. The laundry bag with my initials was a pleasant surprise as I didn't notice it the first time I looked at it and only discovered my initials when I was showing it off to my boss who also loved it. Keep up the sewing because I know there are a lot of soldiers who are looking forward to receiving their quilts. Thank you again.
I am currently deployed to Kandahar Airfield with Rotary Wing Group 8. I am writing to thank you for kindly making me my new laundry bag. It looks brilliant and is a good Aussie reminder.
I just wanted to say thank-you so much for the beautiful laundry bags you sent over. I have had plenty of people come and pick them up to use while they are deployed and they are so grateful for all the time and effort you have put in to making these. Not to mention very handy when doing the washing as we don't want to get our clothes (which are very similar as you can imagine) mixed up with anyone else! I love the fabric and colours you used they will definately brighten up a soldier, sailor or airman's day.
And from the same fellow I received this email to thank me for my "Aussie Heroes don't wear Capes they were Dog Tags" Laundry Bag.
I recently recieved the laundry bags you made me. They're fantastic! They are a big improvement on old laundry bag (being a pillow case with a piece of chord threaded through the seem). I like the saying on the front and i'm pretty sure I have the best laundry bag in the ADF now. Thankyou for the second bag, i have given it to one of my soldiers as he also was without a bag. He is very appreciative of your kindness. I can assure you no one will steal my laundry bag it's one of a kind.
I am very proud to be serving our country on operations for the third time and even more proud that my wife loves me enough to ask for you to make me a laundry bag. No man ever had a better wife.
I can't thank you enough for your kindness. It's greatly appreciated.
