I confess - this is who has occupied some of my time lately. I'm a happy new Doll Mum! This is my newly arrived Gunhilde doll who has been named Izzy after my youngest granddaughter Isabelle. Izzy is a little over 9.5" (24 cm) tall and came dressed in this cute outfit because she is the "Summer" doll in Gotz Doll's 2005 line. She is #27 out of an issue of 555. You can't really see well enough in the photo but she has the daintiest hands, hazel glass eyes and don't you just love her little shoes! She is holding her dainty crocheted hat because once taken off, we can't seem to get it back on! I can't wait to make her some more clothes. Our nights are getting chiling and I think she is telling me she needs something warmer for Fall.
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!
