Today I received a wonderful surprise in the mail! Inside a well-wrapped & fabric-padded pizza box I found the fulled wool block that I embellished back in 2002 for Cindy Thury Smith for an article she did for American Quilter magazine. It was on page 52 in the Winter 2003 issue, in case you're a subscriber and want to see the article. Some time ago she mentioned that she would be returning it to me and I'd forgotten all about it. I still love it; it makes me smile. I plan to have it framed and put a label on the back with it's story.
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!
