I am so happy to have received it. Now that it is drawing into winter I am soo happy to have it to keep me warm on these cold nights. As the person in charge as well I would like to extend my deepest thanks to yourself on behalf of my soldiers who have also received a quilt. I walked up the other day and saw them all draped over beds and people bragging about how good theirs is. You have definitely brought some smiles to our base!
I had just received your beautifully handcrafted quilt and laundry bag only last night.
I personally wanted to thank you and the other ladies of your organisation for all your time and efforts.
If you could only see the joy your patch working has done for morale. A bunch of grown men and women turn into kids on a Christmas morning is how I would best describe it.
And yes, the Eureka movement with its flag is a very inspiring story. Peter Fitzsimon's points of view on the movement and the flag are very spot on.
"Fight the Power" is just a modern take in a similar vain to what those diggers stood for those years back.
I am a little bit of a 'lefty' with views against corporate greed. But that's politics! Who wants to talk about such boring matters!
Also a Victorian, a Melbournian to be exact.
My best wishes to your family, which seems to be growing by the day!
Once again a big THANKYOU for your handicrafts for all of us. Your time and effort is greatly appreciated by all of us here in Kabul, Afghanistan.
Thanks very much for the quilt you have made for me. I am not sure how many of these you make, but I have the one with scissors in the back and Aussie slogans all over it.
It will be a welcome addition to my living space.
Thank you for the kind letter and for showing your support of the deployed ADF members.
We really do appreciate it

Till next time.... keep spreading the word and happy stitching.
