This is the second block for the center of the mystery quilt I am trying to finish while we wait for the house to sell. There are two more blocks to go and then I can start to assemble the quilt.
This one looks like the background fabric is not white, but it is. I guess the light when I took the picture last night was dimmer than when I took the first block's picture. I'm working on the 3rd block now which is a cute snowman.
I may not have mentioned this before, but for most of these designs I'm using 2 strands of DMC floss color#321. For some of the details I have only used 1 strand.
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!
