This is a picture of my yellow/gold/silver/copper drawer that is just for embellishments - no glitzy threads in there - the threads are elsewhere! A lot of this is vintage stuff. Last summer I decided my embellishment color boxes had outgrown the lidded boxes they had been in for years. Some of the lids would not even snap on anymore.
So I went to Big Lots and purchased 8 of those 3-drawer roll-around storage units - as many as would fit under my old oak library-turned-cutting table. I quickly filled them up and had to combine the metallics in with my yellows to conserve space.
Did I mention that yellow is just about my favorite color? LOL!
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!
