Mail Day!

I swear I only get packages delivered once a week all at once...lol another day designated for junk mail 2 days of bills and the others nothing!.
Today was goodie day!
Becky is offering Haley's Roses, a sock pattern she designed to help raise money for the fight against Neuroblastoma, a solid-tissue cancer that took the life of her two-year-old great-niece, Haley Rose Minchella.
Haley was born in the summer of 2003, and diagnosed with neuroblastoma in November, 2004, when she was less than a year-and-a-half old. In spite of a valiant battle and the skills of some of the best doctors in the the country, the disease took her life in August, 2005. Please visit Haleyland to read more about her and her family. Please send her payal to 'bookgoddess02@yahoo.com' for either pdf file or hard copy in the mail. All proceeds go directly to the research she doesn't keep any of it.

What lovely suprises they were too! A neat notepad from the knitting zone top line on every page is check mark 'Order more yarn from the knitting zone'
