Requests 13 March 17

NOTE... our new email system should be up and running today but please allow a couple of hours after you see this as I am not doing it... my off-sider Clarissa is, and she will do it as soon as she gets this info from me.

Hi all

We have a relatively small request list this week but that is because we had such a good response to my call for help last week!  Thank you all so much.  We cannot afford to rest on our laurels though as a number of these requests are from HMAS Arunta and we need to get them made an in the mail so that they receive them safely whilst deployed. Mail to the ships is so slow we need to make sure we don’t miss the boat… pun intended. 

HMAS Arunta Perente Lizard..

A number of there requests for HMAS Arunta have requested the Perente Lizard.  You can more or less get away with any large lizard silhouette for this and here are a couple of examples of what has been done before by Helen Godden.



Also many of their requests want some combination of the following included on their quilts.

HMAS Arunta, Operation Manitou, Rotation 64, Conquer or Die

I can have these embroidered and sent to you to add into your quilts if you like.

NOTE – if you receive this via email DO NOT try to reply to me via email. You need to use friendsofAHQ@gmail.com

A quick note… even if you check 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, PLEASE, PLEASE copy the ENTIRE line if you wish to nominate for a quilt or laundry bag.  
For example….

Marvel Theme. Ironman
M
LB
1


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.  If you find it hard to copy and paste please copy the line out as follows…   Marvel Theme. Ironman  M  LB  1


Decoding Column three

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


Novelty Stars

The novelty stars are great! 
Please continue to use the tutorial shown here…. 

There are no limitations regarding colours but please make your stars colourful and cheery.  The reason I have called them NOVELTY stars is because I would like you to use a novelty print of some sort in the middle of the block if you can please. If this is a problem and you do not have novelty prints then please make your blocks on footy team colours.  If you need some suggestions as to what colour combinations to make just email me and I will give you the run down.   We would love some Aussie ones or red white and blue flag ones if you can please but all novelty are great! 

Please post them to PO Box 248, Cherrybrook,  NSW  2126

Random Quilt tops/quilts

I am not calling for quilt tops or completed quilts specifically but if you have one and are waiting for me to give you a name for it please let me know. 

Post By Date

The post by date for all items on this request list is 17 April please.

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.  Also, if this time frame is too tight for you, there are options, just email me to discuss.


NOTE
Australian National Flag - you can buy panels at Spotlight – ask for them if you can’t find them.
Rising Sun and other badges – ask me about them, I can often send you some to include if your request needs them.

If they want some text and it is too much for you to applique I can get it embroidered and sent to you if you like to be sewn on the quilt or sewn into it.
I can help you with football colours and logos of teams etc. Just ask me. Most of the logos are simple or you can just add team names if you want to … team colours are enough also.
Please think about what the request involves before you take it on. Google, ask questions, email me, make sure you can complete it to your satisfaction before you commit to it if possible please.

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.


Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Cheers and happy stitching!
Jan-Maree
