Novelties or Purple she said, so here's a small area of my Novelties - How would I pick just one? Some are "filed" according to subjects like the ones you're looking at in the picture....food, coffee and critters. the stack on the right is all florals and garden related prints.
I have had a "thing" for novelty fabrics for such a long time that I can't remember when I started. At one time I went through it all and tested for 100% cotton. Unless it was a super-duper, can't be replaced print, the poly-cotton blends went bye-bye.
Unfortunately that didn't lighten my load much. Besides these shown I also have stacks in themes of patriotic, cows, hearts, architectural, nature (rocks,etc.), ocean, fairies, wine/grapes, golf, sewing, oriental, and many more.
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!
