I have added a site to my ornament patterns listing on the right side of my blog. It is a finishing site. Once you get to the site, if you scroll down you will find several links to finish ornaments with. Hope this helps!
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
I want to wish each of you a Merry Christmas. I pray that you all will have a Christmas that is filled with joy and love. This next year as we work on this project together will help keep Christmas in our hearts all year. You all have blessed me so much by following this journey with me. Thank you all for your friendship and for your caring so much for this cause. I have received some ornaments already and will be posting pictures later this week. They are quite lovely. 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!
