I am currently in of Afghanistan serving as a driver around the surrounding areas.
I have not been in the army for long so I am extremely lucky to have gotten this
opportunity to be over here doing a job that most spend their careers trying
to snatch. I was in the right place at the right time I guess. I am enjoying
it so much that I haven't even begun counting down the days till I am home
or anything like that.
Thankyou so so much for making the quilt for me, the design is rightful my
alley. Crazy how much a few colours and patterns can give you comfort
mentally. You definitely get sick of seeing green around here... The quilts
keeps us balanced and puts things in perspective I think. Just reminds you
of what to be greatful back home in the riches of opportunities and safety.
Well please thank your daughter for discovering the blog page for the Aussie
hero quilts, and even more thanks to you for chasing it up. You are doing a
wonderful thing for all you make quilts for.
Hope you and your family are living well and enjoying life,
And I loved these smiles too. Meet Maddy and Kylie. Maddy's father received a quilt and a laundry bag recently and so she decided that it would be nice if she could make a laundry bag to send to someone else's father whilst they were deployed. This is Maddy's first attempt at sewing with some help from Mum. Didn't she do an awesome job! And they didn't stop at one, they started a second laundry bag as well and are planning to come back to the next sewing day in Penrith as well!
