We're Incentive Winners!

The Airedale Quilting Bee recently had a drawing for the quilting bee ladies only to win this beautiful A is for Airedale necklace.
Guess what?
We won and all we had to do was to donate to this years gorgeous Home at Last quilt!
We feel very fortunate to win it because the "A" block is one of the blocks that mom made for the 2010 Airedale Quilt. 
Which one of us do you think should get to keep this awesome necklace for our very own?

This is the 2011 Home at Last quilt and it will be raffled next month and someone is going to be one lucky winner!  Mom made two blocks for this quilt!  Our paws are crossed that it's going to be us!
You need to check out the bonus quilts that you will have a chance to win if you donate.  Each one is a superduper work of art!  This one is called "My Bunny".  Isn't it just so cute!
This is only one of them.  There are 4 of them that you have a chance to win if you donate. 

And please check out the video that our friend, Lesley made.  Make sure you have a tissue handy!

If you can, please donate.  All of the monies helps out the doggies in need!

Thank you!

Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch

Hem. I'm afraid I have to vote for the Mom to keep the necklace, but I'm sure she'll let both of you borrow it if you promise to take good care of it.

The quilts are amazing! Your work is beautiful! We think Autumn should wear the necklace, cuz she probably won't catch it on anything. Just sayin'...

Sam said...

Hi Maggie and Mitch, beautiful quilts. All the ladies are very talented, but your mom is the best.

With all the hard work she does, Mom should be the one who owns that necklace. But we think she should let you each take turns wearing it for special occasions.

You're on a real winning streak lately. Send some of that good luck this way.

We think Autumn should wear it. She will put the least milage on it and that way you can both look at it any time you want to.

Congrats on your pawsome win!

I think there would be less fighting if Autumn wore the necklace!

The quilts are just beautiful. Mom loves handmade quilts. They are very expensive though. But these quilts are like the prettiest EVER!

woos, Tessa

I drew the pattern for the My Bunny quilt. Eli, the happiest Airedale ever, was the inspiration. For eight years his favorite toy was this big stuffed pink rabbit. He had to grab it to greet me when I came home and he would prance around carrying it, bobbing his head back and forth (does anyone else's Airedale do this). The bunny went through the wash many many times and I thought it was going to disintegrate years before it finally did.

My darling Eli went to the Rainbow Bridge this morning. Maybe he has been reunited with his bunny there. He will be missed by everyone who know him. Make a donation in his memory or in honor of the special Airedale in your life. Maybe you will be lucky enough to win Eli and his pink bunny.
