This week's requests


Hi all

I am away in Canberra this week so please bear with me if I am a little slower at getting back to you on Facebook or via email. 

As those of you on Facebook know, I had a night away on Saturday to attend the wedding my one of my recipients and his gorgeous wife who happens to also sew for us.  No, I can't claim any match-maker's rights because they were engaged before the sewing began.

I have just a couple of photos for you - LOVE the cake!!


And here you can see the inspiration for it.  This was a union of a Maltese family and a Scottish family and all the fellows wore kilts.  


Okay, so on to business ....

Just for something different I thought I would put the request list on the blog tonight so more of you can see the sort of requests we receive.  The pink ones are for females.  The number is only relevant to the request tonight.  B= both quilt and laundry bag.  Q= Quilt and LB = Laundry Bag.

if you are interested in making one of these quilts or laundry bags all you need to do is copy the entire line into an email to me so that I know which one you have volunteered for. 

Please note, if you are new to Aussie Heroes and wish to take on a request I do not hand over the recipient's details till I have received the name, address and preferably phone number of the quilter.  Hope you understand.

The requested date that these quilts and laundry bags need to go in the mail by is 29th of December.   If we could get the quilts and laundry bags for requests in the mail earlier than that I would appreciate it as they have less time on deployment. 

I also have some "your choice" laundry bags if anyone has time and as always they can use some more laundry bags in Dubai.
