First of all, we ALL already know it's MS Awareness Month...big deal...nobody WITHOUT MS seems to know this, but we do...so hey, celebrate? And we've all either seen or added our "faces" to the National MS Society Faces Webpage...I'll give 'em one there...that site is rather coolio.
I've been sitting around in my addle time of this most recent relapse wanting to "create something MS"...something that might bring the bloggers (and MS readers) together in a very intimate way. And what I've come up with is an MS Patchwork Quilt...I know, I know...the AIDS people already did this in the 90's! But wouldn't it be kind of cool if we all contributed a square to a quilt that we could call our own? And then maybe as a group decide to auction it off to raise money for WHICHEVER MS charity we decided was befitting of the benefit?
Here's how I imagine in my mind this project working (if at all)...anyone who wants to contribute a 5 x 5 square of cloth, decorated, painted, beaded, photo-copied on, "artworked upon" with your own, personal touches could do so...you would mail me your contribution to my utterly generic post office mail box that receives mail to "Linda D."...I would collect the squares and piece the quilt together with design assistance from YOU. I'd post photo updates here on CHEESE just so you didn't think I was collecting cloth squares to wipe my nose on...and we'd create something together...as an Internet community of MSers...with the same cause.
Anybody interested? Let me know you're thoughts and DO understand MY thoughts are a bit jumbled right now...LOL...
