Our Home our Haven

                                       I get by with a Little help from my Friends.

The gorgeous Jan-Maree from Aussie hero Quilts put out a call this week for some children's clothing because of a request from a Chaplin in Afghanistan.
We are not positive of what is required at this point but a local lady gave me some beautiful handknitted  items and they are off to the Chaplin along with  some other boxes of lovely mixed clothing...9 boxes in all...This was right up my alley as I am co-ordinator of  our little op shop and we are happy to supply whatever we can,all the clothes are as new so it is not anything shabby.Also our shop decided to buy the boxes needed and also another 25 ready to do some for the troops in Egypt.Did you know we even had troops there? well there are 7 ladies and 18 men so we are going to spoil them,Jan-Maree and her wonderful quilters are doing them quilts and we are doing Care Packages,these will be lovely to do as we do them for Afghanistan and it is a joy and an honour.

I know I am supposed to be slowing down but I cannot do nothing and it is no strain to do  and a joy to do these things.So here are the 9 boxes ready to be taped up(now done) forms filled out and they will be posted tomorrow.Hopefully the Chaplin will let us know of his needs,and hopefully we can help him,These boxes are mixed summer and winter,girls and boys.
Jan-Maree and her wonderful ladies are at Aussie Hero Quilts  go across and have a look at the wonderful things they do.
Have a blessed evening.

  4. I think I may be sending handcuffs to Bob, so he can hold you down for a while. So, relaxing is off the menu!

  7. What a lovely post Carole. Everything you do is much appreciated. I am going to forward this to the lovely warrant officer and the chaplain so they can enjoy it too- thank goodness for modern technology!
