Yea! I've finished something else! This is the first of two blocks I am making for the new banner that the Rocky Mountain Crazy Quilters are making. As usual I've over committed myself again. Need to get the 2nd block done, the Aussie Swap into the mail, still have my New Orleans block to finish and then there's the jeans bag purse! Yikes! It's not like I can stitch 24/7; I still have to cook, do laundry and take care of my half of the chores around here! Do others do this to themselves or am I alone in this nightmare?
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!
