In the following email, the quilt is from Millie and the laundry bag from Julie.
Dear Madeline, (Maddy to us)
I'm writing to you to say a huge thank you for the lovely quilt, laundry bag and treats you sent over to me.
As soon as I saw my mate walk up with an overexpanded post mailing box I knew something special had arrived for me. Yes Maddy! It did bring a big smile to my face when I unfolded the quilt you made. I love the Aussie designed theme and praise your craft. The detail is just fantastic! As soon as I returned to my room at the end of my shift I spread my new quilt on my bed. My room now feels that bit more homely and comfortable.
I have been deployed to the Middle East for four months now and have roughly another four months to complete before returning home. My wife and i are building a new house which should be completed by the end of August. It's funny to say when I think of home, its not the home I will be returning to. I do look forward to the day though.
You and the team of quilters from Aussie Hero Quilts are doing a wonderful talented job providing us Aussie soldiers with your gifts.
Thank you again
