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. 9-4 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.
