Happy Weekend! ... with Maple Pecan Muffins!

Good Morning All

Well I can report that yesterday was such a success and so many people came to support the day.  I am waiting to hear what was raised but I know it would have been a good amount, people are so generous for a good cause and so many of us in some way or another have been exposed to cancer
whether or not it is us or a family member or friend.

Talking cakes I have been asked about my Maple and Pecan muffins so today I am going to give the recipe, these are really scrummy.

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend and as always Happy Stitching! XX
