I made this ornament for a close friend who collects mice. I found the cute mouse couple image somewhere on the internet quite some time ago and printed it off. I recently found it in one of my Redwork binders and knew I had to make it for her this year.
I think I need a new oval template though. Didn't realize how off this was until I saw this picture. I used the back off a wooden frame, but it's slightly wonky!
I just love this cute couple! I sure hope my friend is behind on reading my blog so that she will be surprised when her package arrives on Friday!
Well, I'm off to the grocery. It appears now that we will be spending Christmas Eve & Day up in the mountains at our eldest daughters home, so I need to bake a little more and buy groceries for my contribution for Christmas Morning breakfast!
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!
