Stitching for a cure

I have started a blog for 2009. I am asking anyone who would like to join me in an effort to help stamp out cancer to go check out Stitching for A Cure
We are going to be stitching Christmas ornaments for a decorated tree that will be auctioned off and money donated to American Cancer Society. Please join me in this adventure!

2009 - Year of the Sampler SAL

Beth at Crossed Purposes is making the following announcement.

I am making 2009 "The Year of the Sampler." I've mentioned it a couple times on my blog and there are a few people interested in joining me. Personally, I have WAYYY too many samplers in my stash, so my intention is to stitch as many as possible next year. Samplers come in all shapes, sizes, and levels of complexity, so it should be alot of fun.

Me, Myself & I Round Robins #1 & #2

These Round Robins are being sponsored by Vonna. Round Round Robin #1 and Round Robin #2 are all a flutter with what people of chosen as their neighborhoods.

Here are the Rules:

Start Date:
Shall be December 31, 2008

This is the only rule to the Me, Myself and I Round Robins: Please do not start building your actual houses or towns PRIOR to Dec. 31, 2008.
- Blueprints may be drawn up
- Fabric should be purchased
- Flosses should be gathered up
- Borders may be stitched
- Stitching Baste Lines may be stitched in
But no homes or landscaping should be stitched prior to Dec. 31, 2008.
So there is still plenty of time to get your permits, blueprints and waivers needed to begin construction on your neighborhood.

Once you have your theme determined e-mail the Head Contractor so that you can get your Neighborhood under the Themes Title in the sidebar!

Looking for

Looking for any current or proposed or perpetual SAL, Stitching Challenges or events to post here.

I am always having a hard time finding a new way to make myself stich, so am hoping if there is a page where people could look for these events it would make it easier.

Thanks for your help.
