I cannot believe that it has been 10 days since I posted last. So much has happened.
First off, I am stitching on several ornaments at one time. I have run out of mat board to mount them on, as well as double sided tape. Speaking of tape, I use Terrifically Tacky Tape that is found in the scrapbooking aisle to mount my ornaments on the mat board. It is acid free, double sided and is seriously the tackiest tape I have ever used. The last ornament I stitched (the black one) was a little hard to get to stick, but I made it work. I use the 1/4" one instead of the 1/8" one.
Second off, I am completely blown away with the support of this project and of me in the past few days. My Cross Stitch Addiction group threw a challenge out to it's members (you must be a member of this group to participate in the challenge).
Jess, the group owner said that whoever stitches the most ornaments for the project by July (I don't remember the exact date) will receive a $20 gc to their fav online needlework shop. Several of us threw another $20 in the hat and now it is up to $80.
Amazing. I have also received the nicest, kindest messages from you all about this project.
I know we can do this. I know we can make a difference. Thank you again from the bottom of my heart for all you do. YOU ARE ALL AMAZING!
I want to write a book about this project. So if you are "stitching for a cure" for someone special can you shoot me an e-mail or enclose the reason in the package when you ship your ornament? I have heard so many stories and I just want to get it all down.
Thank you so much for all you do and thank you for sharing your amazing talents!
Christmas in July
