I hope those of you who are in the Sydney/NSW region survived the weather today. This is one of those days I was happy to be able to enjoy the weather from INSIDE looking through my windows.
Tonight might be a good night to grab a cuppa and enjoy some of these messages.
Joan and Robin,
I just received the laundry bag you created, thank you very much, it is much appreciated and has gone to use straight away.
I must admit I had started to see a few of them around throughout the ship and heard everyone talking about their quilts and laundry bags and was starting to feel left out, then wouldn't you know it, mine shows up in the next mail run ashore.
I do enjoy my motorbikes and have a bit of a passion in restoring them, seeing the old classic bikes on the laundry bag will inspire me to start another project when I get home.
I think the ship is organising a large photo of everyone and there quilts and laundry bags so we (Arunta) will post something up then I'm sure.
Thanks again, you and your Husband do a terrific job.
Just a quick note to thank you for the most fantastic quilt - it really is something special that I will treasure and definitely be taking home with me!! I cannot describe to you the emotion I felt when I received it in the mail. I wasn't expecting anything like it and hadn't received any mail for a long time. When I opened the box I was moved by how you put so much effort into personalizing my quilt and all the effort contained within - sincerely thank you and it made my day and much more.
I think when I get home I'll 'lend' it to my son, who is three and missing his dad immensely. He has decided that when he grows up he wants to be 'an Army boy' and I know he will wrap himself up in that quilt every night.
Thank you again for my quilt and all that you do to remind us that there are wonderful people back home that appreciate what we do.
All the very best,
Till next time... keep spreading the word and happy stitching!
