Weekly Despatches 6th April 2018

Hi Everyone!
I cannot believe we are in April already.  It is so nice having cooler evenings to allow you to sleep more comfortably. There have been hot sticky nights that we have had for months here in Sydney.  

I guess the hot and cramped sleeping conditions are all part of what our deployed defence personnel have to endure and worse for long periods of time.  We tend to forget that the luxury of our own comfortable bed to crawl into every night is what everyone has.  

Thank you so much for the wonderful work this week.  It is spectacular!

So far for 2018 we have sent off 393 quilts 

 Bringing our total since we started to over 8,808 quilts

 876 laundry bags for the year 

 Which brings us to a total of 17,416 since we started…

Thank you all for the wonderful bright, inspirational and thought provoking sewing.  I’m sure that the recipents will treasure their gifts.

Jan-Maree’s home is busy, busy,busy.  Of course the wonderful materials for sewing going out along with the personalised orders, and beautiful gifts coming in, posting going out and all this as well and the impending move for her family.  It is a logistical nightmare that she handles in her stride, while the rest of us are just “gob smacked!”

Have a safe and full week,
See you round like a rissole
