They have sent us a donation which was raised at their last meeting to help with the costs of Aussie Heroes. Of course I will be writing to them personally to thank them for their donation but I wanted to share it with all of you here as well.
They also said "the work you are doing is tremendous so keep up the good work."
Thank you so much to all of the Waverley Patchworkers Inc. We appreciate the support for those that sew for Aussie Heroes but it is also lovely for the serving members to know that there is such support for us, and therefore for them!
If ever you want to go back and find something on the blog, be it a quilt you have made or a laundry bag or even the above information on the labels there is a box at the top of the page on the left hand side of the blog like the one on the left. Just type in what you are looking for and you should be given a choice of posts to look at. For example if you are searching for a quilt or laundry bag that you have made search on your name and you will find a selection of posts will come up. Now I haven't attached labels to all my posts from the very start of AHQ because I didn't know I could or should so not everything from the early days will come up. I have been doing labels for ages though so lots will come up. Hope that helps!
Down Under Quilts
How exciting that we made it onto the front cover!
We scored four pages inside. I wrote the information and chose the photos for this article months ago but these flag quilts by Marg from WA are still a great representation of our Aussie Hero style.
Just a funny detail - the first photo shows the quilts on the side of Marg's house, not as is stated in the magazine, around the mess tent in Afghanistan. I am not sure where that came from but I certainly didn't write it.
The last page shares some of the feedback received from the troops and I am so glad that made it in as it shows why we do what we do!
So now you should all rush out and buy the magazine so that you can read all about Aussie Heroes and the other bits and pieces in the mag.
if you don't to buy the magazine you can send me an email and try and be one of the first three people to contact me with your name and address as I have three copies to give away.
The only requirement is that you have to have sent off at least one quilt for Aussie Heroes.
Don't forget, if you have posted off a quilt or a laundry bag this week please make sure you send me a photo and a confirmatory email if you want to be included in this week's Mega Quilts of the Week!!!
