I received this ornament from Margaret Stedman from New Zealand. It is so pretty and my photos just don't do it justice. It is stitched on fabric that has metallic threads woven through it. It is finished as a pin keep with pink and white pins on it and a beautiful bow on the top. Just too pretty for words or pictures. Thank you so much Margaret! I have started (actually started, ripped out, started again, ripped out and started again) my first ornament. I am doing the blackwork ornie and the first thread I used didn't show up enough, so I am now using some Wildflowers in a really pretty purple color. Won't be as pretty as Margaret's but at least I am contributing finally. Keep up the great work!
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!
