Hi Janet H,
Thank You so much for your lovely artistic laundry bag which I received from our Chaplain. (Indigenous dot style with the Sydney opera house)
We really do appreciate the time you have taken to make these for us and the letters sent along with them. Its the little things like this that make being away from home a little more comforting.
Kia Ora Sue,
Firstly, Thank you!! I am a now the proud owner of an amazing quilt you crafted as part of the Aussie Heroes quilt organisation.
I have been meaning to write to you since I received the quilt about 3 weeks ago. The end quilt is amazing and has been displayed proudly on my bed ever since.
A little about myself. As you guessed in your card, I am a Kiwi. I grew up in the Palmerston North, Home of the Manawatu Turbos.
Now I am a Chiefs supporter, but follow rugby though at every level all the way to the All Blacks.
I joined the New Zealand Navy after finishing High School in 2011. I am currently halfway though what will be about a 4 year exchange with the Australian Navy.
I am in the Navigation Role of the Navy and will be on my final Navigation course in Sydney next year before returning to the Australian fleet for consolidation.
My Partner (also a kiwi), moved to Perth with me last year and now has a really good job as a nurse in Fremantle. Both of us are really happy living in Australia.
Again, Thanks for the time and love you put into my quilt.
