I have received several beautiful stitched pieces for the tree. Several have come from Janet Stanko. I will post pictures of these when I complete the ornaments. She did a couple of bookmarks also that we will sell with the tickets for the tree. I just received these two pillows from Jeneen Frey. They are so sweet. They are little pillow ornaments that have a stitched pink ribbon on the front and the cutest pink ribbon fabric for the back. Thank you so much you two! And to all the others I have e-mailed back and forth with. We are going to have a beautiful tree and raise lots of money! Donna
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!
