Maisie sounds delightful! I have two small puppies waiting for me at home. They rule the house while my wife tries to maintain order. I truly believe I sit at the bottom of the household hierarchy.
I am one of the ADF members you recently made a Laundry Bag for within the Middle East.
Thank you so much for making this for me, I really appreciate it. It may not have been the most exciting laundry bag to make but none the less means a lot to me. My Corps is quite a proud Corps and we take pride in showing our colours, and I will do so with my new Laundry Bag.
Thank you for the Tim Tams, and yes Tim Tams are very popular over here - especially when we are trying to build relationships with other countries, we butter them up with a few Tim Tams. Also I enjoy (probably too much) having a few Tim Tams when I have a coffee. And just so you know, by some miracle the Tim Tams you sent did not melt! Every other lot of chocolates seems to melt!
This is my first deployment overseas and I had not heard of hero quilts so I was pretty excited to get my order in, a little bit anxious as well as I did not know what would arrive, but I can assure you that you hit the nail on the head. Thanks for doing what you do and taking the time to do this for myself and all the others you have done sewing for and all the future sewing you will do! I might encourage my wife, mum or Grandma to do the same.
Can you please pass on my gratitude to Rhonda as well for the embroidery.
Thanks again Anne, I will use the Laundry bag for the rest of my career.
I am so pleased to let you know that my quilt has found me safe and sound, as well as my laundry bag, They are both so amazing I will make sure that I thank both makers with a handwritten letter of appreciation.
I just wanted to drop you a quick email to say thank you so very much for the absolutely wonderful quilt that you made and sent to me. It really is a lovely quilt and has significantly brightened up my room!
It has been an interesting time lately with very cold temperatures and reasonably regular snow falls that have left a few inches of snow on the ground on a number of occasions. I still find it amusing when I see grown men in the military from various nations having snow ball fights!
Thank you for all that you do in supporting deployed troops through the Aussie Hero Quilts program. It really does make a difference to us over here, away from home, to receive such wonderful gifts from members of the Australian community.
Thank you again for the thoughts and the effort that you have put in to making the quilt. It is very much appreciated.
All the best,
This is my second time in the Middle East; however, the first time I was here we did not have the opportunity for Aussie Hero Quilts.
My wife and kids are doing a tremendous job back home in my absence and I am very lucky to have them. My family are all big into sports, mainly NRL, but my wife plays netball and we will watch almost anything.
I cannot express enough my heartfelt appreciation for the laundry bag you made for me. You have done an astounding job and I will treasure it forever. You absolutely nailed my request
and I love it. The laundry bag is amazing, especially with only 4 years practice.
Sounds like you have a truly beautiful family, and it is great to hear you running rings around the boys at the local golf club. Don't ever let life get in your way! Keep hitting those goals and improving your golf game.
Kind regards and the deepest thanks,
Thank you very much for my package, it arrived today and it was a big surprise as my wife had organised it so I had no idea it was coming.
My washing bag looks fantastic, you obviously found out that I'm a keen golfer when at home.
I joined the RAN at 18 straight out of school. I am amazed at how quickly the time has gone. I have made a lot of good friends along the way and enjoyed some interesting postings. On completion of my tour over here and I'm looking forward to spending some quality time with my family again.
Once again thank you for what you do, it is greatly appreciated, and I think you may receive a few more orders shortly as everyone else here though it was amazing too.
