Bev U, Bridget, Gail, Clarissa and Ann came to work today and work they did. I now have a stack of about 40 quilts sitting in boxes waiting to be taped up once I have written the covering letters to go with them. I am on that now.
Additionally, they layered quilts, finished a quilt top, made a very special mini quilt for a very special purpose, layered quilts, quilted quilts and so much more!
Now just to get the quilts that we boxes taped up..... anyone free on Monday night?? Your assistance would be much appreciated.
For now on to some great thank you messages.
Thankyou for the Beautiful Laundry Bag I really appreciate it, as well as the goodies you sent me which won't help my fitness or waist line but will help with morale. I hope your son has a safe deployment and I have no doubt his deployment will be a lot harder than mine. I'm married with two young daughters who have birthdays while I'm deployed and are 3 and 7 this year - time flies as no doubt you know having now grandchildren to baby sit.
First of all thankyou so much for making my quilt. It looks amazing! Quite a few people have said its one of the best they have seen. When I put my wish list in for the quilt I never expected anyone to have found any old Bears stuff but you did. The chances of someone selling North Sydney stuff is rare as some asking for a quilt. Don`t worry I wont be going looking for any defects with quilt. I still impressed that you got made.
A little about myself. I`m 32 years old and have been in the Navy for 8 years come October. I grew up in Victoria. I was a Butcher before I joined the Navy. I have a partner, and a son who will turn one year old on the 16th of December. Just in time for when we get home.
I hope you enjoyed you tour on HMAS Darwin - it is one of Newcastle`s sister ships. So what you saw Darwin is exactly like ours. I am in charge of the Engine Room so The main propulsion Gas Turbines and all the associated systems that go along with it.
Once again thank you so much.
Back to work for me, more covering letters to write!
Till next time.... keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
