Before happy mail a couple of announcements.
Firstly, don't forget our dinner is coming up next Thursday the 11th. It looks like being a good night with some special recipients (well aren't they all special??) coming along. I know I am looking forward to seeing them and they are looking forward to meeting the quilters and laundry bag makers. It is not too late to put your name down if you are interested in attending. That is part of the reason that I hold these events at my home. No need to collect money and finalise numbers. Our dinner in Brisbane last year was wonderful but this is much less stressful and easier to include last minute guests. Remember, you don't have to sew for us or be a recipient, As long as you support Aussie Heroes in some way, even if that is reading the blog, or the facebook page regularly, and cheering us on that is good enough. We would love to meet you.
The dinner is at my home in Sydney and starts at 630 for 7pm. PM me or email me (friendsofAHQ@gmail.com if you are interested in coming along.
Also, don't forget the laundry bag challenge. Tamsin from Berrima Patchwork has just arrived home from America and a HUGE quilt show over there - soooo jealous and she had donated some prizes for us.
If you are planning to bring your laundry bag along on the night can you please send me a photograph of it beforehand so that I have it for our records. I may (just may) be sending some of the bags away with one of our guests to give to some of the members of their unit and wont have time to take photos of any bags on the night.
now for our happy mail. everyone must be busy or something. Anyone would think Christmas is coming or something! Still we have a few hardy souls sewing for us still.
Thanks muchly ladies!
Over to Caroline!
