Something to think about

I've been following Donna and her stitching for a cure tree for a while now. I'm also following her personal stitching blog too. She's got a great idea for raising money for cancer. She's doing a stitching tree. She has links in her sidebar for all the free patterns that can be used to make ornaments for this tree. In November the tree will be raffled off and the proceeds will be given to the Amercan Cancer Society.

I recently finished LizzieKate's Peace, Love and a Cure and although it isn't what she needs for the tree I've told her I want to donate it to her cause. I'm also going to stop what I'm currently stitching and pick one of those free patterns and stitch up something for her tree. I've lost several family members to various cancers over the years and I need to do something to help. If I can help by doing something I love, like cross stitching then I say GO FOR IT!

How 'bout it? Is anyone else out there up to the challenge? Can you take a couple hours of your time and make a beautiful ornament for her tree so we can help fight the good fight?! I dare you, no, I DOUBLE DOG DARE YOU to pick up the gauntlet and run with this. Who's with me?!?!?

Oh and I forgot to mention the absolutely awesome finishing website that she has in her link on there too. She has everything you need to start the ornament except the floss, needle and cloth.

One more thing; it's a favor that I'm asking of all that read my blog. If you could possibly take a minute or two and just put something on your blog that directs people to Donna's Stitching for a Cure site so they can read what it's all about. The more people who see this, perhaps will mean more people willing to stitch an ornament for her and the American Cancer Society. Thanks!!!

You are the best! I mean it, the absolute best!
You asked for suggestions for the peace, love and a cure. You could do it as a flat fold and I could auction it off. Last year I did this piece and it brought in $75 alone. If you need help, I can help. Thanks so much for the mention!

Sounds great. Im a member of this yahoo group http://groups.yahoo.com/group/Quiltsforbreastcancer/
which is always looking for cross-stitched pieces - they are made into quilts by a few people and sent to people with breast cancer

I'll put a note up about Donna's blog. What an easy way to help, just one more WIP for me, but it could mean the world to others.

I am planning on visiting her site later and picking a design for the tree! I think it is awesome what she is doing!
