No, no - I didn't fall off the face of the earth. I've just been busy with life AND also I ventured back into my "room of good intentions" and have been sorting, rearranging and tossing my "stuffs" in order to clear out a bit. I have a terrible time letting stuff go! But I HAVE to get the room cleared a bit so I can at least work in there instead of in the dining room.
One thing I'll never let go of is this cute button bucket that belonged to my Mum. If you click on the picture to enlarge it, you can read about it's origins. I'm playing catch up here because I was supposed to post this picture to the Stash Sunday group's photos about 3 Sundays ago.
Coming soon: pictures of "the room"; be patient tho, ok?
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!
