This is the BEFORE picture of one of the 2 pillow top pieces I'm working on right now. This is the darker toned one of the two and was my first attempt at a pale peach & green piece. It got a little dark, but I like it and decided to not trash it. Yes I crocheted the little basket and I also dyed the two motifs using Ozcraft Dyes which I LOVE!
I still need to get them tacked down and the basket needs some finish work, but I think these basics are pretty permanent in their location. I love the lady and have wanted to use her for sometime. I think she fits perfectly on this piece.
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!
