Requests 25 July 2016

Hi all
Here is the request list for this week.  We have a bit of catching up to do but it can’t be helped. We will just have to do what we can.

Before anything else…Please please, please keep an eye on the blog.   This is my most effective way of keeping you all informed with what is going on and I really need your help supplying info when asked so that I can get the request list and other data sources up to date after the fire.

I am not yet able to write posts every night but I am working towards it. 

Just a reminder, if you have volunteered to make a quilt during the period 16 May to 13 June please let me know. I have lost those records and really need to reconstruct them. If you have already told Lisa then no problems. In the mean time please do not send emails to Lisa unless we ask you to again. All emails should now come to me at friendsofAHQ@gmail.com

Here is this week’s list.   Anything you are not sure of.. JUST ASK!

POST BY DATE

The post by date for the rest of the requests in this week’s list 29 August.  PLEASE note the date and let me know if you have any problems getting your quilt/LB away on time. In fact, if you are going to be late posting it please let me know BEFORE you post it.

PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE copy the ENTIRE line if you wish to nominate for a quilt or laundry bag.  This is really important to make sure that neither you nor I copy the wrong number which could lead to me giving you the wrong details for specific request.

B=both quilt and laundry bag (feel free to nominate to JUST do the laundry bag if you wish)
Q= just a quilt
LB = just a laundry bag

Requests in pink are for girls.

Please note, from next week I will start to allocate any random quilts and laundry bags you have made whilst we have been in reconstruction made but if you see a request on the list and your quilt/Laundry bag will fit it please let me know.

Remember, you do not have to include everything they have asked for.    Footy quilts do not need to have the logo or even the team name. Using the team colours is all that is required. Simple is perfectly acceptable.  A number of these requests have given you favourite colours as well as footy teams or other hobbies and interests.    It is fine to make a quilt using their favourite colours and include only one of their interests.  It is fine to keep it simple.

If there is more than one request on this list that you would be happy to do I suggest that you send me a list of requests and tell me how many you want to be allocated…. Ie one of the following please….  There are always a few requests that everyone wants to do (and I can never pick them) so if the first one you ask for is taken then I can allocate another from your list if I have a list.

A quick note… even if you receive the request list every week, please take the time to skim over this preamble.  I edit it to make it relevant every week and I know that many of you are not reading it by the questions I am being asked. It takes you just a minute or two to scan it but takes me considerably longer to read and answer the emails I receive ….. please give me a hand in this. Your assistance is appreciated.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Cheers and happy stitching!
Jan-Maree

NOTE
Aussie flags and sometimes Union Jacks, available at Spotlight
Words and names etc can be embroidered and sent to you to incorporate in your quilt to avoid you having to applique them.  Just ask me.
RED LEAD – this is a black cat associated with the history of HMAS Perth. I had the details but lost them in the fire – am working on getting them back. Please let me know if you need  them.
