Picture Perfect Happy Mail.
Tonight we have a different kind of happy mail. A couple of weeks ago I put out a call on the Facebook page for some Aussie Postcards. I include a letter with every quilt or laundry bag that I send off but if I send a second parcel to someone or when I send off boxes of laundry bags or whatever I always like to include a postcard. I can't hand write much these days thanks to my arthritis but I can type so I type up a message,print it out and stick it on the back of a postcard. That way the recipient is getting a bit of a message (you can fit a lot on a postcard if you type it) and a picture of Australia as well. I used to love putting up postcards when I lived away from home and I reckon lots of our deployed folks like the colour too. Sometimes I know what their hometown is, sometimes I just choose a card from anywhere. They all seem to like them but a few weeks ago I ran out of cards. I usually stock up when ever I travel but still I had run out. So, I put out a call..... and you have all been so wonderful. I now have a lovely selection to choose from and some of the ones pictured are already winging their way around the world.
I can always use more if anyone still wants to send them.
I have already shared a few on Facebook but these are the ones that have arrived since then.
Thank you so much everyone. :-)
Jacky G sent a great collection from Poppy Park
This next bundle from Kim B came with this lovely message...
"I hope these warm wishes from beautiful Broome put a smile on some faces. keep up the good work - you're all doing a great job."
And another lovely message from a recipient accompanied these ones.
"thank you very much for your hard work, This is my way of showing my appreciation for receiving my own quilt. Amanda"
From Joan in Tassie - one of these is going off this weekend to a warm the heart of a deployed Tasmanian
From Sue P
From Debbie P including a spotlight card - big thanks for that Debbie ;-)
From Liesa at the tindal RAAF PO - big thanks for the huge bundle of cards. Very cool!!
thank you Katie L
from Liz and Peter, a recipient's parents.
from the mother of an HMAS Darwin recipient and also a quilter....
Thanks so much everyone. This might seem like a small thing but a colourful postcard is so much more interesting than a plain piece of paper and I would not have been able to afford to buy this many myself.
Back to "normal" happy mail next week. :-)
Till next time................keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
