I have started stitching another ornament. It is the middle section of the Breast Cancer Awareness 2007 pattern. I am stitching it on hand dyed pink fabric. It will be finished as a flat fold ornament with the back being made of the pink fabric with flowers and pink ribbons I am showing with it. I am going to make it into a diamond shape of sorts and am going to use my crop-a-dile to put an eyelet in the bottom corner and then attach a locket to it. That way if someone wants to put a picture of someone who has cancer in the locket and hang it on the tree they can. We shall see how it all works out. Thanks so much for caring so much to help!
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!
