I posted something in the Discussions and Questions forum asking if anyone was going to do any Breast Cancer Awareness Stitching this month in support of the Breast Cancer Awareness Month and kittykill suggested a Stitchalong!

Yay stitchalongs! (Yes I'm lame.)

So I'm posting this in hopes that others join in.  Maybe we can find an organization that might be interested in having them to display or something else?  Not sure.  I'm new at this.

Now that I've said all that...I KNOW WHAT I'M STITCHING!  At least the subject anyway.  Now to find some material, finalize the layout, transfer patter, get thread and STITCH.

I got 99 problems, but a stitch ain't one.

This is my first post, so if I get anything wrong, please be gentle with me Smiley

I really wanted to join in this stitchalong but couldn't find any patterns that did it for me, so I have just uploaded a Pink Ribbon pattern to my website, inspired by a lovely angel I saw in an online silent auction.

I can't post pics yet, but here's the pattern:

Hope someone can make use of it Smiley

littlemojo - Don't be discouraged by the lack of great patterns.  First off, LuluB has posted a preview of a pattern she'll be posting on CraftStylish tomorrow here. It's very pretty! --->> http://www.craftster.org/forum/index.php?topic=271611.0.

Secondly, if you can't find something...make it up!  It's one of the things I'm really liking about embroidery!  That it's pretty darn easy to come up with something if you can't find exactly what you're looking for!  To come up with what I'm stitching I did a search for web pages and images of "Breast Cancer Awareness" and "Breast Cancer."  I looked through pages and pages of images, sketched a couple of ideas, saved a couple of images and wrote down a bunch of keywords. From there I let it stew and came up with a couple of ideas.  I'm still in the sketching phase, but hopefully I'll come up with something fairly concrete soon so I can start stitching!

More than anything though, I'm having fun with it!  You should too!

Oh, no, I wasn't discouraged, quite the opposite in fact. The pattern I linked to yesterday was my response to not finding anything Smiley

Thank you for the link and the suggestions.

I'm almost ready to start.  I FINALLY finished the other piece I was working on (for a swap) and now I'm ready to finalize the design so I can start stitching.  Anyone else?

I haven't posted enough to be able to put pictures in yet, but here's the link to my Ribbon Angel.

I'm very pleased with how she came out.

I really like it!  That's awesome! 

I took on an ambitious project myself, and so I'm about 70% done but it feels like 30%!!  I LOVE the design I came up with, but if I were to do this again (I might) I would make some serious changes to my colors and how I'm actually executing it.  I will definitely be done before the week is out, it's just taking forever.
