Call for Cakes

Im putting a shout out to all fluphettes, I NEED YOUR KNITTED CAKES!
oh god what is she up to now?
nothing, nothing crazy
We have been asked to do a knitted display for the Macmillan coffee morning, see its not crazy!

Macmillan is such a fantastic charity and i thought this would be a great way to help them get some publicity, plus knitted cake!

    "There are now 2.5 million people in the UK living with cancer. By 2030, it will be 4 million people, and we want to be there for them all.
One in three of us will get cancer, and it will be one of the toughest things we’ll ever have to face. Our goal is to make sure no one faces cancer alone. We provide medical, emotional, practical and financial support, as well as campaigning for better cancer care. And because cancer affects more than just those facing it, we’re there for friends and family too. We are Macmillan."

I am sure like me you have had a few people you are close to or not so close to suffer from the a**hat that is cancer and maybe some of you have used the macmillan nurses yourself. They do some fantastic work and i think we can honour that with our pointy impliments!

So the plan, the coffee mornings will all be held on the 25th of September 2015 this year, but because we are going to be pure celebrities and get our photie (well the knited coffee mornings) in the Courier we need it done before this so if all the items could be in my grubby mitts by

September the 16th 

that would be awesome.

What do you need to do
knit, crochet or craft something inspired by a coffee morning, for example;
sugar cubes,

what size?
roughly life size would be ace as its going in our big window so we need to fill it,  but i would be extatic with anysize.

where to send it?
you can drop it off at the shop, or post to
164 Blackness Road
and if you would like your item back include a little note with your address and they will wing their way back once we are done.

Need some inspiration, check these out!
