It is always hard to see people we love go through something hard and extremely painful.  A well known visitor to the Pootie diaries and very good friend to many here, jwinIL14, has just been diagnosed with lung cancer.  He is scheduled to have surgery on Sept. 25, certain tests allowing.  He is hoping they will have to remove less tissue rather than more… Regardless, it will be a very major surgery.

Let’s make jwin14IL a colorful blanket full of loving messages that he can take with him to the hospital, something to remind him of how many people treasure his cheerful spirit and sense of fun.  Then, when he is home recuperating, he will have all your loving words to blanket him as he rests and gets his strength back.  This kind of community love is excellent medicine and it cannot help but support the spirit of our dear friend as he heals.

 This is a rush project for obvious reasons — we are looking for at least 44 messages of love and support and hope to get them quickly.  So please help us spread the word and get this quilt subscribed.  If “jwinIL14” is too much of a mouthful in your message, it is okay to address him as John.

What is a community quilt?  It is a quilt containing messages from you, transcribed by me in archival ink onto muslin.  My sister and I incorporated these messages into a colorful design, tailor made for the recipient.  Each quilt is unique and very personal.  They also have a strong vibe from all the words of love and respect.  Words have great power!  Believe me, they really do!  Leave a message in the comments below and I will {{{{hug}}}} you to let you know I have it noted.

It takes lots of time and material to make a community quilt and it is a living for me and my sister. If you would like to contribute toward the cost of this quilt, here is a PayPal link— or message me for an address should you prefer a check.  $20/message is suggested by no worries if you cannot afford to donate.  We still want your message!  This is a crowdfunded thing and some always give more to cover messages for those who are short on funds.

Please note, if you leave a message in PayPal or somewhere other than the comments below, please Kos Mail me to make sure I pick it up.
