Jill, Brutus and Biscuits.
You remember Jill? From the Wedding and the Beautiful House? Which was featured on THIS Blog.
Well- much excitement for Jill- her beautiful home has been chosen by Homespun Magazine to be the background for their next photo shoot. Which means in a Homespun coming up- (January I think, more details later) you'll be able to see more of Jill's House behind the Homespun Projects!! So keep an eye out.
We've been testing out some great new recipes for you, here at the Red Brolly Test Kitchen- some really yummy ones! So you'll have some super delicious stuff to go in the Christmas Baskets, Christmas Hangers, Jingle Cones and onto the Sugarplum Tabletopper. (All patterns can be seen under the "Christmas" button and bought at any good Red Brolly stockist).
These were supposed to be Santa's noses biscuits (on the right, it's dinner on the left)- Chocolate biscuit, Marshmallow on top, coated in chocolate- Yum! But didn't quite work out!
Maybe the oven was a little too hot.... BUT..... they now look like Bird Splat Biscuits. Oh well, try again!
All recipes can be found under the "Recipe" button- and will be updated regularly!
( Yes, you are quite welcome to use the recipes , even if you haven't bought the patterns.)
I like to support great causes when I can. There are two wonderful projects coming up to raise money for two great charities- of which I'm a part of the fundraising.
The first is the Addis Adaba (say that six times fast) Fistula Hospital in Ethiopa which is part of Quilt Aid- put together by Helen Stubbings of Pattern Press. This quilt will be released early 2011 and has such famous people designing for it as:
Anni Downs, Lynnette Anderson, Helen Stubbings, Sue Daley,Nat Lymer, Whimsical Quilts,Bunny Hill Designs, Bareroots, Brenda Riddle, Kathy Schmitz and Robyn Pandolph.
Brutus will be so upset when he finds out- but.. I put a D-O-G in the design!
He's really going to carry on!
I knew he'd be upset! So I've also designed another project for Homespun- and I put Brutus in it! Haven't told him yet. I'll let him get over the dog episode first.
I can't show you the whole of the designs, only bits- as they haven't been released yet- all Top Secret Stuff!
