Hello all! This is Jen, Donna's daughter. I am helping her set up this blog and all the computer aspects of this charity venture. I want to personally thank all who have volunteered to stitch ornaments for this cause. I know my mom has great faith that this will turn out to be a great event! It was brought to my attention that some were having problems printing the '2007 Breast Cancer Awareness Pattern 1'. I looked at it and realized it was due to the fact that the picture was far too big to print on normal printers. I have resized this down for printing so you now can click the resized link and print that! I hope this helps you.
What is stitching for a cure? It started as a year long project to help save lives. We were stitching ornaments that decorated a tree that was raffled off on Thanksgiving 2009. The money raised went to American Cancer Society.
We have raised over $1000 with that project. We went on in 2010 to stitch quilt blocks and to make 3 quilts. Those quilts raised over $2000. Amazing. My focus has turned to a new cause. Juvenile Diabetes. I am not sure what our next project will be, but I am sure that our stitching will play a big part in this adventure. Come join us by stitching or simply following us on our journey!
I hope to educate anyone reading this blog on Juvenile Diabetes. But mostly, we want to stitch for a cure!
I am 55 glorious years old and married to a wonderful man. I have one daughter who lives in Houston and 2 grandsons (ages 12 & 14).
I love traveling locally and chatting with friends.
I am retired and loving it!
