FINAL QUILT RAFFLE TALLY IS IN!

The final quilt raffle tally is $15,510!  Great job, everyone!

The final combined amount raised for National Airedale Rescue, Inc. during this quilt fundraiser period consists of both quilt ticket donations of $15,510 plus another $563 raised by Lori Taylor with the sale of CalendAIRE wall and desk calendars and HATitude notecards. That combined total is $16,073.  Thank you, Lori, for coming up with the wall and desk calendar idea and donating the calendars for sale.

Check the blog within the next few days to find out how you can have a "piece" of CalendAIRE by purchasing the calendars. Since CalendAIRE is a calendar quilt, it was perfect for 2016 calendars with each month represented by the corresponding quilt block.  I have one of each myself.

MAGIC & GUS (VA) - ATRVA


Magic
MAGIC - Melinda Costa of ATRVA wrote: Eleven year old Magic came into rescue with ATRVA in December 2014. His owner sadly had to find a new home for his beloved Airedale. His daughter and grandson had moved in with them, but his grandson had developed severe allergies to the dog. Magic's owner had even moved to an apartment with Magic to help his grandson and still keep his dog. But he knew this wasn't a long term solution and contacted ATRVA. Magic had been loved and cared for, but he did need extensive dental surgery upon entering rescue. After his successful surgery, he was back to acting like a very playful male Airedale! He looks and acts much younger than his 11 years. He was adopted by a previous adopter and now lives with her two other dogs and a cat.

GUS - Melinda writes: "Nine year old Gus entered rescue with ATRVA in June 2014 after being relinquished by his owners to the local shelter for running away. That truly was the best thing for him as he needed love and medical attention! He had had no vaccinations for about five years; no HW testing or HW preventative (thankfully, he was HW negative). He tested positive for Lyme and was found to have broken, rotted, infected or loose teeth. The dental disease was so bad, it caused him to have a bloody nose for almost two weeks. After two successful surgeries, he ended up with no teeth, but instead has bone grafts and tissue flaps. Gus is now happy, eating and playing bitey face (more like gummy face). He was adopted by a family who adores him!!"

NO. 9-1 WOOLIE DALE "OLD WOMAN IN SHOE"
Donated by Sue Senerchia
Made by Carol Usher of Woolie Dales


   

The tag says "Old Woman in Shoe" is # 407 and was made in 2005. The black boot is 10" high and 11" long. It's a real work boot. The woman stands 10" high if you remove her from the work boot. This is truly a "one of a kind" piece made by the wonderful and innovative fiber artist, Carol Usher. Carol passed away several years ago so those of us who have one of her creations treasure them even more.


NO. 9-2 THE LINDA RONSTADT ALBUM AND SHEET MUSIC
Donated byJeri Langman

   
The album cover features Linda Ronstadt and her two Airedales. It is highly collectible and hard to find both.



















NO. 9-3 AIREDALE FAIRY DOG MOTHER QUILTER'S KITCHEN WITCH
Made and donated by Terry Stevens
www.blackheathfars.com
Facebook: Terry Stevens



Legend says that a Kitchen Witch will keep roasts from burning, pots from boiling over, and the hearth stones toasty warm. This Witch makes sure a quilter need never rip another seam!! Measures 7" long.



NO. 9-4 STAR QUILT
Donated by Donette Loehr



This lovely non-Airedale quilt is machine quilted and measures approximately 50 inches by 50 inches. Christine Sheffer wrote: A dear friend has given me a quilt to help the Airedale Rescue quilters. She thinks your work is terrific. She doesn't have a dog. This isn't an Airedale quilt, but she hopes it can help as an incentive.

She tagged it with her name and National Airedale Rescue on the back. Donette Loehr doesn't own an Airedale, but she is a friend to them. When she heard me rave about the marvelous ladies of the Airedale Rescue Quilting Bee, Donette immediately offered a quilt to support the efforts.  She described this one as a happy favorite, but also a bit stubbon and challenging when she was creating it.  Hmm, happy and challenging - just like the Airedales we know and love.  The quilting on this lively piece resembles dragon flies buzzing around. The star and edging are made of pieces that include themes of fresh vegetables, happy insects and gardening suppies along with beautiful flowers.
