I wish all my American Blog Buddies an EARLY Happy Mother's Day this coming Sunday. I'll be rather busy tomorrow with our local garden club's annual plant sale.
Today I received this wonderful bouquet of roses from daughter #2 and it came with a nummy box of Godiva chocolates too! But my dh laughed when I was even more enthralled with the ribbon flower that topped the chocolat box. It's quite lovely and it's a pin you can wear as well. The way it's made is so unique and yet simple; I may have to try one and show you all later.
I think we'll be spending Mother's Day moving more boxes and excess furniture over to our storage unit in preparation for some painting that we must get done this coming week. Our friend will most likely help G with the painting, but don't think I'll be able to make a clean getaway - I think I'm going to have to lend a hand to steaming off some wallpaper. Not my favorite chore.
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!
