Hi All
So how is life in this new COVID era treating you. I hope you are all finding the silver linings and focusing on the positives.  I am reading some lovely positive stories on Facebook every night before I go to sleep and I find them so encouraging and inspiriing. Not being able to leave home because I am in self-isolation is frustrating as I can’t personally thank those who are making life possible for the rest of us so I am having to find other ways to express my gratitude. One of those is sewing for our serving men and women.  I  hope you are finding it a comfort and a positive experience through all this as well.
Here is the list for this week. 
The post by date for all items on this list is 25 May please. If you cannot make that date please let me know.
LET ME REITERATE, I DO NOT WANT TO ENCOURAGE ANYONE TO TAKE ANY UNNECESSARY RISKS WHATSOEVER TO CONTINUE SEWING FOR US. I DON’T WANT THAT AND THE MEN AND WOMEN WE SEEK TO SERVE DO NOT WANT THAT.
Laundry bags –
If you don’t have what you need to take on a personalised LB then please make a random bag or two.  I have a plan for the Random bags but you will have to be prepared to post them to me or to another Aussie address.  This is not free sadly.
I had hoped to have the details for you this week but due to the workload that COVID-19 has placed on so many of our service people it takes a while to get new processes set up. Please bear with me.
Quilts –
There is a great mix of quilts on the request list. I haven’t had time to separate them into simple and more complex but I think you will be able to sift through them and find something you like. There are plenty of simple ones on the list that just need a badge or crest or maybe a couple with some text that I can have embroidered and sent to you.
Some are team-based requests and just need the colours, maybe with a service crest added.
There are a number of requests that ask for a bunch of badges and some text. I can send you the badges and the text can be embroidered and then you can just create your quilt around them. Simples…
Your quilts can be simple squares or strips but please do not resort to quilting one large piece of fabric as a topper. If there is one thing we will mostly have in abundance over the next few weeks it is going to be time, so blocks and strips or other pieced designs are the order of the day please.
PLEASE note the date and let me know if you have any problems getting your quilt/LB away on time. In fact, if you are going to be late posting it please let me know BEFORE you post it.  Also, if this time frame is too tight for you, there are options, just email me to discuss.
IF YOU CANNOT GET TO THE POST OFFICE
If you cannot get to the Post Office and do not have someone who can go for you, then I still encourage you to keep sewing.  You never know, there may be someone in your area who can pick up your mail from your front door (no contact) and deliver it to the PO for you. We can at least try that.  LET ME KNOW
FOR ANY NEW VOLUNTEERS
PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE copy the ENTIRE line if you wish to nominate for a quilt or laundry bag. 
For example….
Marvel Theme. Ironman     M       LB      1
This is really important to make sure that neither you nor I copy the wrong number which could lead to me giving you the wrong details for specific request.  If you find it hard to copy and paste, please copy the line out as follows…  
The first column is the theme or preferences requested.
The second column indicates the gender of the recipient.
The third column is as follows.
B=both quilt and laundry bag (feel free to nominate to JUST do the laundry bag if you wish)
Q= just a quilt
LB = just a laundry bag
F= female
M= male
Please let me know if you have any other questions.
Cheers
