Amy's Ride

As promised, here is more information about the 'Ride to Conquer Cancer' fundraiser I talked about several days ago. My friends Marie Alton and Cathy Ross (who are sisters) are doing a wonderful thing to help their niece Amy raise funds as she participates in the 200 km bike ride from Toronto to Niagara Falls, with the proceeds going to the Princess Margaret Hospital Foundation. There is an excellent description on Cathy's blog (http://thedepthswithin.blogspot.com) and there you can see the wonderful jacket Cathy has up for auction. She makes THE most gorgeous clothing!! Please make a bid if you are interested!!

AND...as I told you before, Marie has some beautiful bead work available (for only $5 each!!) on her blog (click on the picture titled 'Amy's Ride') http://sredeluxe.blogspot.com. All proceeds from those are going to the cause, plus Marie is matching your donations! I have a couple that will be coming my way and, because I already own a few pieces of Marie's work, I know they will be beautiful. Please help if you can.

WHY OH WHY HAS BLOGGER DECIDED NOT TO LET ME LINK?????!!!! Sorry!
