Virtual Cookie Exchange & Blog Hop 2019

It is day three of the: Virtual Cookie Exchange & Blog Hop at Just Let Me Quilt. 'Hope you are all enjoying the event. This tomte gnome is something that I have wanted to make for a while. 'Also learned some interesting information about gnomes as well. According to legend, they are active little sprites! 'Wonder if they like brownies... This one measures 13" tall and has a weighted bottom to stand. The body and nose are cotton fabric. His clothing is olive cotton flannel and his beard is white craft faux fur.

The recipe in that little blue plate is Chocolate Mint Brownies. They were quite easy to prepare, and do taste yummy. The filling is gel-based food-colored dyed green, and the topping is a ganache made of real chocolate morsels. The link to the recipe is below. Be sure to hop on over and visit all of the bloggers for all of their special recipes and projects. This is so much fun!

  2. Hi Danice: I love your little gnome. He looks very hungry and ready to gobble up those yummy looking brownies. Was it difficult to sew with the faux fur?

  10. Anything topped with ganache has got to be delicious, right? Make it a mint-topped-brownie and it'll be out of this world! I do believe your gnome is just waiting for your to turn you back so he can gobble up one or two! He's quite darling ... I'd love to know where you got your pattern, or if you just made it up!! Thanks for dropping by my blog, too! Merry Christmas! :)

  11. Hi Danice! I am 100% certain that gnomes like and actually love brownies. No doubt about it. I'm pretty sure there were four brownies on that plate until you set it down and got ready to take a photo. Mr. Gnome enjoyed it - you can see a slight - oh so very slight - brownie dust on the very edge of his beard. (jk) Thank you for sharing such a delicious looking brownie! Merry Christmas to you and your family. ~smile~ Roseanne

  13. Thanks Denise. For the gnome pattern, I just "winged it" to what appeared to look good. The body is just a simple cone-shape with a round bottom, weighted with walnut shredding.
