I live in Buffalo, N.Y. with my husband Vinny, my 17 year old son, Ryan, our 2 Airedales, Henry & Augie and a plethora of cats. Henry is 2 years old and we have had him since he was a puppy. Augie is 5 and he joined our family in April, 2006 from Airedale Rescue of Western NY. It has been a long journey for Augie and he has settled into our family wonderfully. Henry & Augie are great pals and love to play and cuddle.

I spend my free time painting pottery (Airedale themed of course!), scrap booking, watching my son play hockey and spending time with Henry & Augie. I also volunteer for Airedale Rescue of WNY doing home visits, transports and manning information tables at events. I just made a career change and began working as a Cosmetology Educator for The Salon Professional Academy. This is a big change for me and I’m looking forward to a new phase in my life. 

   This will be the fourth quilt that I have worked on with the Bee. I enjoy doing the hand appliqué and consider it artwork. It’s amazing how each of these beautiful quilts can be completely planned via the internet. The Conformation block I have sewn is based on an adorable drawing by Darle Heck. I believe that it shows the fun loving personality of the Airedale Breed.
