No, I didn't run away or disappear! I finally found my stitching groove and started laying down the stitches on the first Banner block. I'm almost done with the basics. The colors are not showing up correctly in this photo. the patch on the far right is dark green and that line of chained feather stitch, a new stitch to me, is in bright chartreuse. It was looking kind of plain until I went back over it and added a straight stitch of gold metallic ribbon floss to each chain stitch. I still have a couple seams to deal with and then the fun begins: patch motifs & beads!
A lot of you know me as a fiber artist of sorts. I have been teaching crazy quilting and embroidery for years now, but I also love good food. I have collected and experimented with recipes for over 45 years. I have even edited a cookbook for our local garden club. I also am happy to say that I own my Mum's handwritten recipe book which contains recipes from my grandmother and recipes Mum collected since she and my Dad wed in 1925. When I was searching for a name for my recipe blog where I will be sharing a lot of Mum's recipes this blog name just popped into my head. When I was a child I used to hear ladies at church functions like weddings, potlucks & picnics ask "who is that little girl sitting over there all by herself?" Someone else would always answer "Oh, that's Lulu's Girl; she is very shy!" Some of you know that I've overcome the shyness, but, believe me, it took a very long time!
