Here are some new ornaments from Jeanine. She has the most beautiful, most unusual ornaments I have ever seen. Did you see the turtle? She used the actual stitching as the shell of the turtle and then made a stuffed turtle to go with it. SO, SO CUTE! Then do you see the little pom pom one? It is stitched over one. I tried several times to photograph it but could not do it justice. These are so nice and what's more, they are done by another person who just wants to help with this project. Thank you so much Jeanine! I have stitched some other ornaments and am in the process of putting them together. I will have another educational blog soon. And I have heard from more friends that more ornaments are on their way! Check this blog frequently. There will be lots of activity soon!
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!
