Pumpkin cupakes for this weekend's Harry Potter Festival - all Potter'd out by Sunday pm

A couple of grandad's onions from the plot - ready for our veg. soup

Homebaked oat and almond biscuits - yum!

Finally finished FP's new school bag!

Gorgeous new book - have begun a baby coat for a new baby boy in the family...beautiful Debbie Bliss yarn!

All done

Completed the little sailor man this morning, so cute!

Must just mention the delicious Plum cake I made this weekend from Nigel Slater's book - myself and the girls polished it off between us, perfect with a splosh of natural yoghurt!

Looking forward very much to a Fair on Sunday, I haven't done anything like this for a while and I'm hoping to have a lovely day, here are the details:

Cherry Events
Sunday 11th Sept
Uppermill Civic Hall
All proceeds to Oldham Cancer Support Centre
£1 Entry

A sample of my softie stock for Sunday's Fair!

Busy, busy at the moment, I am working on a Sailor Doll and hoping to complete it by Monday, I may well be stitching it at the fair, last minute as usual, a very bad habit of mine!

Obviously a work in progress, lots of stitching to be done over the weekend, good job the man of the house is away camping with the boys...
