Packing to go back to sea and I picked up my laundry bag!!! A big thank you to Jan-Maree and Aussie hero quilts. I love it, and will use it.
I would like to thank you for the quality Aussie Hero Quilt that you and your mother made for me. I love it and it means so much to me , it is a beautiful memory that I will take from this place and cherish for ever. I am so proud to serve my country and people like yourself and your mother make me more proud to be Australian. My mother also does a lot of quilt work and she absolutely loved my quilt that you have made.
Once again thank you with all my heart and thanks to your mother as well, I hope life treats you and your family well.
Good morning Ruth,
I received the Laundry bag in the mail today. Usually receiving anything in the mail is enough to put a smile on my face however your package has brightened my entire week. I absolutely love the Laundry bag.
I appreciate the difficulty it took for you to put a Carlton emblem on the bag, especially being a Port supporter :). Being a New South Welshman I grew up playing and watching Rugby Union, I was introduced to AFL by my Grandpa who played for Carlton reserves in his younger days. So by association I became a Blues supporter. It gave me an opportunity to spend time with him watching the games together.
Thanks once again for the bag it will remind me of my Grandpa and definitely brighten up my room and my deployment.
I am writing this email to thank you for sewing and sending my laundry bag (and the pen and Tim Tams too).
The feeling of receiving a package here is hard to describe and to have something hand made and with a personal letter makes it even more special.
I truly appreciate the effort you have made to make and send this package to me and the other packages that you no doubt have sent to other members over time.
I trust you are enjoying the pleasant weather in Brisbane, it is around 43-46 degrees Celsius here at the moment so I am missing the Aussie weather a bit.
Thank you again for your time and effort and take care.
Thankyou very much for the hero quilt it made my day!!
I'm currently serving in Afghanistan as a PMV driver otherwise known as a 'Bushmaster'
Thank you very much again it means a lot for us soldiers over here when we recieve things from back home and from complete strangers to go out of their way is awesome!!! I will truly cherish this quilt you have made for me. Also I love 'Billabong Hotel' it works perfectly with me because there isn't much I love more than sitting at the pub enjoy a few cold one's.
I would like to thank you both for the effort and the time you put in to give all the ADF members a gift. It has brighten up our days receiving our laundry bags and quilts.
We are excited for each other to see the wonderful work that you have been doing for each and everyone one of us and there are no words to describe what it has meant to me.
I am also sorry that it has taken this long to reply to you but I have kept your letter safe in my locker so that I could thank you guys. I love my laundry bag and all the colours, you have done a great job.
I am pretty sure that we will be taking a group photo soon but if not I will take a photo and post it on facebook ASAP.
I would just like to let you know that it has meant a lot to me and my fellow ship mates.
Thank you again and have a wonderful day
I am writing to thank you for making my quilt.
I received it about a week ago and I'm stoked. It completely exceeded my expectations. The other lads in the section have got theirs too and they're just as pleased as I am. I'd just like to say that I really appreciate the effort yourself and others have gone to to make me my quilt and laundry bag. It made my day when I received them.
Thank you again.
