Boxes were loaded in my car last night and this morning I got a park right outside the Post Office and all are on their way as I write.
I also want to say a big thank you to Angela who has been beavering away, largely behind the scenes, to ensure that our dinner in Brisbane goes according to plan. Hmmm, the plan was not to make it bigger than Ben Hur but I think we failed. Oh well! As well as coordinating the dinner, sorting the ticket sales, liaising with the venue, making up name tags for the night, Angela is also hand writing and sending off the 75 plus hand made Christmas Cards that Sandra P made. And she does it all whilst running a home, working in the family business and mothering two teenagers!
You are a star Angela and I don't know what I would do without you!
Another big thank you goes out to Joan who is taking charge of the raffle ticket sales. Your efforts and organisational skills are much appreciated Joan. It is people like you that make it an absolute pleasure to run Aussie Heroes! Thank you!
We have a couple of lovely messages that have come in ....enjoy!
Well I was extremely impressed the other day when the quilt you made arrived in the mail, unfolding it to see what you had created was far better than opening any shop bought present! The only mistake you made was making it so well that I'm scared to use it! Luckily it is getting significantly cooler around here so it serves as a perfect blanket to use when I read or jump on the internet at night in my room. It was in the 40's when I got here and now there has been reports of snow in the mountains...what a country!
Again I can't thank you enough for the time and effort you put into the quilt, and the presents (I am a chocoholic so the the chocolate disappeared very quickly!). I hope the weather has turned around for you, my friends in Canberra seem to be having a late wet winter so hopefully it has extended all the way north.
Good Afternoon Noeleen,
I wanted to extend my heartfelt thanks and appreciation in receiving my Aussie Hero Quilt today. I absolutely love it. The colours are beautiful and it will make a wonderful addition to my bed. Thank you very much for making this for me and sending it over. Anyway thanks again for making my quilt, I will treasure it for many years to come.
