Karen stitched this beautiful ornament for the Reach For A Cure volunteers. I really appreciate it! I have also received many other stitched pieces that need to be made into ornaments that we are going to sell the night of Relay For Life. I have ordered some fabric (it is that same Hope fabric that Jeanine used in my previous post) that I am going to finish them with. I also stitched up the C is for Cure freebie by Lizzie Kate and Just Cross stitch magazine I talked about in my last post. I used Strawberry Milkshake lugana by Silkweavers and changed the color of the threads. I think it is really cute! Our last Relay in 2010 is on Oct. 16th. We will draw for the winner of the quilt at that time. Then take a deep breath and get ready for 2011! Thanks again for everything. We really are in this together!
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!
