Well, she asked for purple and here is a shot of my purple embellishment drawer. The only fabric in there is the embroidered piece of a blouse collar a friend gave me. The leaves are vintage from Lacis's shop in Berkeley, California. I inherited the tatting from my crazyquilting Mother-in-law. The daisy trim at the bottom of the picture was someone's cast off item I found at a quilt show. Lucky Me!
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!
