I stitched this square for the quilt. It was made in honor of a friend of mine, Paula, who battled breast cancer and has won! She had a relatively new procedure and is completely clear! Woo hoo! She and her husband Donald live in a small town close by us and are the coordinators for our blood drive there. They both work so hard and are so appreciated. They were even our Circle of Life winners for last year. I have had several squares turned in now. I will be ordering the fabric to go with the squares soon and will send it all off to the quilter so she can start on it! Thank you all so much! 2010 is going to be a busy year. I have 3 Relay For Life relays and we are doing a quilt a piece for two of them and the pillows for the other one. So I will need more stitchers to do a few more squares. When I get it figured out what is needed I will leave a post!
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!
