A few weeks back, mom learned of a quilt that TART was raffling off. TART stands for Texas Airedale Rescue Team. Mom fell head over heals in love with it and couldn't wait to send in money for tickets in hopes that she would win it and even if she didn't, it's for a good cause - Airedales in need!A lady named Miss Becky wrote to mom and sent her the raffle numbers and asked her for our email addy just in case we win. On May 1st, we got on our computer very early as we always do and we found an email from Miss Becky telling us that we won the StAireway To Heaven quilt! Mom couldn't believe her eyes! And she kept pinching herself the whole day through to make sure she wasn't dreaming.
The quilt was made by Kathy Patterson and mom has received a few emails from her so it's for real - mom wasn't dreaming! whooooooooohooooooooooo
We also found out that the quilt has raised $1230.00 and that's just awesome!
Would you guys like to see Kathy's Dales?
Meet Ruby and Sam! Aren't they cuties?!
The quilt has arrived at our house and we can't decide if it looks better on mom and dad's bed~Or on the bed in the guestroom.
What do you guys think? Which bed should get it?
Of course Mitch thinks the quilt looks the best on him!We can't tell you how many times mom has run up and down the stairs just to stand in the doorway and stare at this beautiful Airedale quilt and smile! It truly is a work of art!
Thank you so very much, Kathy! You are one awesome Airedale quilter!
So until next time................
Love ya lots,
Maggie and Mitch
