Aussie Hero Quilts Request List 4 Feb 19 - and start at the Knees please...


Hi all

OK, it is time for some news…. Five weeks from tomorrow I am heading to hospital for a double knee replacement.  I have waited a long time for this and by the time I have the surgery I will have spent 12 months preparing for it.  This is not something to go into lightly. This will require me to hand over the running of Aussie Heroes for the first time in 7 ½ half years. Fortunately, Gail has volunteered to step up and help with the administration and emails etc.  Bless her cotton socks, I am not sure she knows what she has volunteered for but she has been with me since 2012 so probably has a pretty good idea.   I will let you know when she is set to take over for me, but suffice to say she will be grateful of your support and understanding as there is a lot, A LOT, for her to learn in a short time.

Also, we have a huge number of requests on the list at the moment and March is not really a good time for me to take time off.  I usually do a lot of prioritising and shuffling around etc to get as many quilts made as possible in the time available.  If you are able to take on an extra quilt or laundry bag in the next couple of months or so that would be  great help.

Now on with this week’s request list….

Please, please, please read this preamble each week as the info does change. I am receiving a lot of questions from people who have not read this info so you would make it easier for me too if you took a few minutes to read it.

The post by date for ALL items on this list is 11 March  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.

 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…  

Decoding The Columns
The first column is the theme or preferences requested.
The second column indicated the gender of the recipient.
The third column is as follows.

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
F= female
M= male

The last column with the number is a simple registration number for me to use… it is only relevant for this week only and will change if the request is still on the list next week. Once you have received the recipient’s details you will need to use those to refer to the recipient from then on if need be.

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.
  
If you don’t understand what people are asking for or where to get some of the bits and pieces then please ask me but the following might also be helpful.

Australian National Flag - you can buy panels at Spotlight – ask for them if you can’t find them.
Afghanistan flag – I can send you one.
Rising Sun, RAAF Crest, Navy Crest, Coat of Arms, RAEME 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 may be able to get it embroidered and sent to you to be sewn on the quilt or sewn into it.  Just let me know what words you want, what colour fabric and what colour thread… keep it simple please.   Also include your address in the email to save me time please.
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.

Please let me know if you have any other questions.

Cheers
