Code Pink Alert!

OK, so you've got a jillion (?) projects that are not finished, the laundry pile has grown feet and teeth and you are about to give it a name, the garden needs weeding/planting/watering (pick any and all that apply) and your kids can't remember the last time they were looked after by a babysitter......take heart, Mothers' Day is coming up sooner than you think!
In the meantime do any of these statements apply to you?
  • Am a Mum/mom/Mummy/Mother or Mama?
  • Planning on being one?
  • Identify yourself as a woman?
  • Care about peace and liberty for all women?

If you said yes to any of these pointers you qualify to join A Radical Act of Knitting in honor of Mother's Day!
From Code Pink - Women for Peace,
"We are creating a beautiful, quilted cozy to cover the fence in front of the White House to honor Mother's Day. The message will be “We will not raise our children to kill another mother’s child”-inspired by Julia Ward Howe’s Mother’s Day Proclamation. We’ll be piecing it together from individual squares knitted by YOU as part of the 24 hour Mother’s Day vigil for Women who live in War Zones. The best part is you don’t have to be an experienced knitter to help! This is perfect for knitters of all skill levels—and a great opportunity for those who want to learn! Celebrate the time honored tradition of the radical act of knitting!
