And then there is this message that I received from Lynda from the MUC Pilgrom Patchworkers.
We were delighted but mystified how he knew we were there and had been involved in Aussie Heroes. Apparently an email is sent each morning detailing things happening that day on the base. Our visit was mentioned.
Thank-you so much for the quilt and laundry bag you have made for me, I am completely astounded by the level of quality and detail you have put into making both of these. I was happy to see Linux enjoyed the Greyjoy quilt above the rest (great name by the way - I'm a computer nerd myself so I appreciate the name!). I have a cat back home - Nina, whom I am hoping will enjoy it as much as Linux and I have. We have a cat fanatic onboard so I have left the photo of Linux with him for his collection (he has an entire wall of cat photo's in his office!).
All of your efforts with producing these gifts have been greatly appreciated by the crew if you haven't already been told so, so on behalf of all of us I would like to thank you again for all of your hard work and wish you and your family all the best for 2017!
Thanks and Regards,
First off, thank you so much for the time and effort you have put into making me a laundry bag. I love it! I am using one my partner sent over for me because I forgot mine haha. But this is fantastic! And it makes me so proud to serve over here for you lovely people back home.
We have been pretty busy over here and it's always a great feeling when you receive a care package in the mail...especially if there is a letter inside. I'm only in my 20's but still quite old fashioned and love reading letters. I also love old cars...I am currently restoring a 1975 Dodge ute and I also own a 1975 Chrysler Galant. So you can probly guess I'm a Mopar man through and through. I come from a family of mechanics, each brother has a different taste haha.
I have so much respect for what you nurses do and the battles that you face day to day would make regular people give up, but you are extraordinary in your ability to care for and heal people. Good luck in your career and I hope you go far and have wins everyday!
Well I think it's time that I sign off now, you're probly sick of reading this email now. Thank you so much for your care package and the laundry bag you made me. I will take it on every deployment I find myself on and think of you and your lovely family. Have a great time in Ulladulla and I hope this email finds you well.
Thank you so much, this means a lot!
I just wanted to say a big thank you for the amazing laundry bag that you made for me. It is a great and unique laundry bag that will make finding the elusive laundry that much easier. The work that yourself and everyone apart of this great initiative do an amazing job. The effort that you have put in during your spare time is great. Although you don't get to see it personally all these items bring smiles to our faces knowing that there are people like yourself who give so much.
I wanted to say thank you for your work as an Emergency nurse as well and am amazed that you have the time to do something like this, just shows how much of a hero you are.
This laundry bag is something that I will cherish and be using for the rest of my career.
Thank you so much,
