Pot Luck Dinners
A Special Thank You
I think I have shown you a picture of this beautiful quilt made by Bev and Geoff Coates from poppy blocks Bev made. Last week I posted it off to the parents of a Fallen Warrior. This afternoon I received a phone call and a very heartfelt thank you from the father. I won't say any more to protect their privacy but I thought you should know that much.
The Other Thank You Messages
My quilt has arrived and no you cannot have it :-).
(I told him I would be happy to take it off his hands if he did not like it! LOL as it that was going to happen!)
I am amazed at the quality and workmanship that Pennie has put into it. As I have put down in a letter to Pennie - it is a work of art. The detail and combinations of all things Australian are mind blowing. I am one very happy camper - Thanks.
I did do a tour of my work place showing it off and I can tell you there were a lot of offers to take it off my hands - not a chance. Pennie also enclosed a photo of herself, husband and grand children making the gift that much more personal. At the risk of repeating myself you and your organisation are a godsend to service people deployed away from home.
In closing please pass on my "Good on Ya" and appreciation to Pennie and all of your group. Its people like you guys and girls that make me proud to be an Australian Soldier.
Till next time...............keep spreading the word and happy stitching! JMxx
