How special is this…..

Last week I received an email from Louise from the Dolphin Quilters from Old Bar in NSW and she had a good story to tell that I just had to share.  This is what she said….

“Just want to let you know that I met one of our recipients from HMAS Toowoomba this week – he received the attached koala quilt back in August 2014. 

Was on his way to Sydney  with his family where he has been posted for the next 18 months and realised he would be going past Old Bar where his quilt came from.  They came in to stay the night here and he went, with the quilt,  to the post office and the library to see if anyone could tell him how he could contact the Dolphin quilters. 

He was sent down to the Bowling Club where they know me and he obtained my phone no and called me.  I went to the club and spent about 30 minutes with him.  Was just so nice to meet and chat to him and to think of the trouble he had gone to to find me/us  to personally say thank you. –  my ladies were thrilled when I told them today.”

How awesome is that!   Told you it was worth sharing!

Till next time………………..keep spreading the word and happy stitching!

    Awesome to read. Just goes to show that Aussie troops not only appreciate your work and generosity, but that they also have good manners, too.
