I had a special finish last night. It marks the first of a group project that I'm pretty excited about. For the last little while I've felt the need to do something positive. Run for the cure was a given but I really wanted to do for Junior that was cancer free because Cathey was so much more than a fighter. Members of our local stitching group have wanted to do something as well but being 6 hours away an involved role is just a no go.
So welcome to Project Junior, the goal of this project is to ensure that there is a stitched ornament every year until he is 20. For the local group it also means attempting to use some of his mom's fabric and fibres to create these ornaments (where I will be coordinating sending the ornament out I will not be sending our supplies outside of the city). The goal is to hopefully create enough now to disperse throughout the years. However, one ornament a year in the event there isn't uptake from the group isn't a huge thing to take on. Luckily there are a couple of people I know will help me make that happen ;). It is quite possible that there will be more than one a year, but with any child related project, it has to be has to be a full on commitment. The response so far from our group has been overwhelmingly positive so here's to many years of keeping Cathey's stitching spirit alive.
Now on to this year's ornament that's popping in the mail tomorrow:
