Beads Anyone? This is the shelf in a cupboard where most of my beads live. There's also a drawer full of tubes and small ziplocks of beads but they aren't sorted yet. The towers are mostly sorted into colors, so some towers are taller than others. I counted 56 towers, but I could have missed a couple! If you are smart enough to buy these towers always from the same place, the little individual jars can always be screwed together. Unfortunately everytime I find a good source for them, the place discontinues them. I used to buy them always in the fishing department at Rite-Aid drug stores, but that source dried up. Then Wal-mart started carrying 4 sizes in their fishing department. I didn't get enough towers fast enough and now that department manager says they have a new supplier who doesn't offer this item to them. Going Crazy; wanna come along? I'll drive!
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!
