We Love Crochet
|||||bzzzz-ing of my computer||]|
I haven't welcomed anyone new yet, because my computer has been fried, but now I'm back!
As you all know we have a breast cancer ribbon as a userpic. I haven't found a decent 'yarn' or 'crocheting' userpic yet, but I thought that since we were a female based community, that the ribbon pic would be an okay choice until another is discovered.
I would even like us to start a little something to deal with raising money for the American Cancer Society. I just recently did their Relay for Life, and it has got me thinking that next year I want to do something myself...as in have my own team. I had a really cool idea though....
I thought that maybe I could have someone there at the Relay with me and that person and I could stitch and walk in turns. Then I thought that the only other person that I know that would do this with me is my mother, and she (I know) has already devoted her time to another team. Then I had this idea:
I could have people and members of LiveJournal to crochet for an hour right after one another instead of walking for the Relay, and take pledges for the people who are participating! And not just crocheting either...they could quilt, knit, embroider, and crochet!!! Then we could raffle off the finished projects at a later time and still raise money... not just in the U.S., but in every other country as well, and not to the American Cancer Society, but to any other charity of your choice. I don't know, but I thought that it would be a neat idea to have an annual 'Stitch-a-thon' here in my hometown!!! Maybe I should get started!
Oh yeah and if anyone would like this icon, it was made by eyesthatslay!!!
