Happy Tuesday Friends!
Oh my, you are going to need to get the tissues out for this weeks blog.
Grab a cuppa, sit back and enjoy some well deserved gratitude!
Good morning Aussie Hero Quilts and Beverley F,
I am feeling the happiest I have felt in a very long time. I am writing to let you know that the quilt has arrived safe and sound along with a lovely personal message. You all do such amazing work and I can tell you with 1000% certainty all the boys and girls out here love every bit of it.
Please pass my unending gratitude to Beverley F for her amazing work. I can feel the effort and love in the detail.
I was told by my peers that my request was rather ambitious but what you have made Beverley, is truly next level. As soon as it unfurled, a biggest grin grew on my face reaching from ear to ear.
At 26 I find it difficult to know where I want to go in life so it’s refreshing to hear your voice amongst all the other noise. The stories you have shared are the stories that drive me to get out there and try something different and to take part in building up the people around me.
I thank you for making this quilt for me. Every time I look upon it, I not only remember the story of my deployment out here. I will also remember the stories of Beverley, the people back home and why I decided to join the Defence Force. Please know it will be cherished
I hope one day I can give back to serving members in such a meaningful way as you do now
Very many thanks,
I am writing to you because I have been blessed to have received your wonderful laundry bag. I have read your letter, and enjoyed reading about your children and grandchildren and how proud of them you are, your involvement in Aussie Hero Quilts and your experiences especially in Adelaide’s sister ship HMAS Canberra.
I have served in the Royal Australian Navy for coming up to 18 years. I have served on a number of ships including HMA Ships Tobruk, Perth, Darwin, Kanimbla, Ballarat (twice) and now Adelaide. My role onboard is interesting, it is extremely diverse.
I have a very young family; I miss them terribly when I am away, as they miss me. Coming home is always special. Your laundry bag will always remain special to me. It appealed to me as I have an interest in Motor racing. When I get the opportunity I will send you a photo!
I just recently received the Aussie Hero Quilt you made.
Thank you so much for all the work and effort you put in to making the quilt, I felt very honoured to have received it and love the design, Very appropriate for me as I like bike riding.
This is a wonderful thing people like you are involved for the veterans.
I retired in 2021 after completing 40 plus years of full time service with the Air Force and currently working as a Reservist, so have not completely left the Defence Force yet
Dear Bev L,
Good Morning Jenni S,
We are so grateful for you volunteering your time and money to create a little bit of cheer for Australian Military members on deployment! The quilt you crafted is fantastic quality and makes my cabin feel a little bit more like home!
Thank you so much for your kind gesture and support of our Military.
Hi Hilary P,
I have received both the quilt and Laundry bag that you made for me. I am extremely grateful, you have done an amazing job and they are better than I could have imagined.
I am reaching the end of my time at sea for a while at the end of this year and both items will make a great keepsake and based on the great quality, I’m sure will last me a long time.
I just want to say again how grateful I am for the effort that you have put into both these items, they are truly amazing.
You made a quilt for me and was delivered. I was in the Navy and served just under 5 years. I really wanted to say a massive thank you to you and all who take their own time to make the quilts and laundry bags.
I hope you are having a bit of a break from making the quilts.
Thank you very much.
I want to thank you, Dorothy, Lyn, Kerry and Philomena for the beautiful quilt that you made for us. It was delivered up to the Sunshine Coast on the weekend.
The Flanders Poppies are very special the colours are just beautiful ( had some happy tears) our son would have loved it.
Once again thank you all for making such a beautiful quilt in his memory. I will cherish it for forever
Until next week keep your letters, emails and photos coming in.
