Thanks to the Out to Lunch Quilt Bunch for donating this beautiful quilt to help raise money to pay Opal and Rider’s staggering veterinarian bills after the hit and run accident.

The quilt is called Greyhound Garden.

This photo doesn’t do it justice as the flowers are vibrantly colored and the back is a stone washed green and white pattern.

You can read about the accident and the miracles that ensued.

Thank you

The Arizona Animal Fair was a good day for greyhound vet bill fundraising.

We raised a whopping $561.00!

The bracelets glistened in the sun like a dazzling beacon singing – Come Buy Me!  They drew women in like a dark chocolate factory.

We lost track of the number of bracelets sold as there were many donations too.

People said they read about Lizzie’s story and the greyhound accident in the newspaper.

Thank you to Greyt Escape and Desert Dog News for allowing us to participate under your banner. It was a hot day, but well worth it.

Paws 4 a Cause was collecting money too.

Our next beading bee is March 8 and we’ll get another accounting and will post  an update at the time. I’m sure we’re getting near the fini$h line.

There are more bracelets for sale at Silver Sea Jewelry & Gifts, 330 N. 4th Avenue, 624-9954 and online at Etsy.com (scroll to page 2 and 3).
