I found a couple of photos of toys I'd made recently and not posted here. The kittens, Gilroy and Archie, went off with my last order to Tiny People. Albert the monkey is soon to be included in "Softies", a book being published by Penguin Australia in September this year. His pattern will be in there too. It looks like it's going to be an interesting book, with a number of craft bloggers submitting patterns. I'm really looking forward to seeing it.
Also, I was wondering if I could please enlist some help from the baking inclined among you. The recipe for yo-yo biscuits in my last entry uses custard powder. A couple of people left comments asking what it was as they hadn't come across it. It seems as though it is either not a universal ingredient, or that what we know as humble custard powder here in Australia goes by another name in the US. I'm talking about a yellowish, flour-like substance that you add milk to, to er, basically make 'fake' (ie without the eggs and assorted palaver) custard. Any ideas what other name it goes by, or what might be a good substitute? Thankyou!
