I hope to write a better post at some point to show you around the new Aussie Heroes HQ but this will have to do for now. This is the new set up in my temporary home. It is not perfect and nowhere near as well set up as my old sewing room was but it is lovely and light and airy so youtake the good with the bad. Huge thanks goes to all those who have contributed funds to the Go Fund Me account or to Aussie Heroes in general, as I would not have been able to arrange much more than a desk without your help.
Big thanks to Selena who bought me a new sewing machine. Your kindness and generosity just blows me away. Also thanks to Daryl from Horn Sewing Furniture, Shane from Chatswood Sewing Centre, the wonderful team at Bernina, all of whom have looked after Aussie Heroes and myself with wonderful prices for items we have bought. Thanks also goes to Rajiv Chaudhri, Chairman at Alive 90.5, Chief Executive Officer at Stayconnect, who donated my new laptop and to Bev Jordan from the Hills Shire Times who connected us.
Special thanks to my mate (a friend from the RAAF all those years ago) who spend three hours assembling my sewing table for me. And a huge thank you to my lovely husband for his countless trips to Ikea to buy furniture and so on.
And because I still receive lots of emails asking how we are going with our house, here is a brief update. As of last Friday the house has been completely demolished. All that remains is our spa and some of the paving... the rest of gone. Not quite a CLEAN Slate but now the way has been made for a new house. I don't expect things to move too quickly. Plans, discussions, council and all have to come before the building starts and I expect the earliest we will see bricks and mortar make an appearance will be sometime in the New Year. If I am wrong that will be a bonus.
Every step forward is a step in the right direction. :-)
And now for this week's messages...
Till next time.... keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
