Happy Tuesday Friends!
I would like to say the biggest and most heartfelt thank you to you for the wonderful quilt and laundry bag that I was presented with yesterday.
Wow – I feel so honoured that you have taken so much precious time and energy in creating something so beautiful for me!
It was presented to me at our Australian Defence Force Support Chaplain’s Course, alongside 8 ADF course Chaplains who were receiving their Laundry bags through Aussie Hero Quilts. Jan Maree is in the back ground of the screen behind me!
Having completed 20 years full time Navy and 17 as a Naval Reserve undertaking days, this is definitely my most treasured recognition; to have not only been nominated, but to then have someone as special as you to make it for me, is truly wonderful.
Once again Jacqui, thank you, thank you , thank you, it will always take pride of place in my home.
With warmest wishes
I have received my quilt and absolutely love it. Thank you so much Barbara for making it for me, I really appreciate it.
Hi Ellen,I’m just writing to extend my sincere thanks for sewing a marvellous laundry bag which has been of great use during my current deployment to Malaysia. I suspect it has been some time since you first sent the bag off, however I wanted to let you know it has indeed found a welcome home here in the tropics.
To give a little history about myself, I’ve served in the Australian Army for 19 years now, first as an Ordnance Corps officer and for the last eight years as a doctor. I remember with some fondness (albeit a lot of tiredness) my time as a medical student and junior doctor in the public hospitals of NSW and ACT.I am the proud father of two girls, 7 and 4 years old, and am extremely fortunate to have a phenomenal wife who navigates the trials of a periodically absent spouse and parent with strength and grace. I have found throughout my time in Army that the partners, children and family of serving members very much serve alongside them.All the best to you and your husband in your travels exploring Australia, and I wish you both many more years of spectacular scenery (with maybe a fish or two thrown in 🙂 ).Kind regards.
Thank you so very very much for my Laundry Bag it has been very well used to this point. It is absolutely beautiful and I am so very appreciative of the work that you have done in making it for me.
My time in Defence is also coming to an end and your Laundry Bag will be one of the few things in the last couple of years to brighten my day.
Unlike you I have just started my journey as a grandfather and look forward to the years ahead watching my little one grow into a big strong man.
Once I retire I will have the time to do that and with the way and the quality of my Laundry Bag I will pass it on to him.
Again thank you
A quick email to thank you for the wonderful laundry bag I have received this week from yourself. The colours are excellent, and brightens the corner of my cabin on board the ship.
I hope you are well, and surviving the unprecedented and dreadful floods.
Yours aye, and enduring thanks
Thank you! I was delighted and surprised to receive my very own Hero Quilt. It is fantastic. The imagination, skill and hard work is outstanding. In a long collection of memorabilia over my career, it will be the stand out. It’s comforting composition makes it all the more personal. It represents memories with unique touch and feel. It’s something I know already that will be a centre piece of when I rest and relax for the rest of my life.
Thank you again – this is very special.
