Last evening my husband even got involved when I started pulling outo fabrics for this block. We visited New Orleans back in March and had such a wonderful time. It was only one day, but we left saying we wanted to come back and stay longer. I hope we get the chance one day. This morning, when I started piecing, I managed to mis-read the guidelines and first made an 8 inch block - duh! This aging is SO much fun. But I was able to adjust things and spread it out onto a 10" foundation - don't look TOO close! Now onto the fun part - the Embellishing!
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!
