Well, a fat lot of good it did, but today I took a trip out to visit the stash! Alas, it was a failed effort since the stash was the first thing moved into the 10' x 15' deep temperature-controlled storage area. I was only able to wave from afar. I took a couple other pictures also which you can see in my Flickr photostream if you click on this zoomed picture of the boxes in back.
I made sure that my stash was the first thing packed & moved into the storage area and placed against the back wall. My logic? Well, I figure if we are moving far afield it will end up on the back of any truck and will then be readily available. It wil either get moved into a large area of our new abode OR.......it will be moved into a smaller storage area so that I can load it into the new abode gradually as time allows.
Logic! Maybe I'm crazy, but I think I'm logical. And I'm organized - just LOOK and SEE! Those boxes all have a number on them. And the numbered inventory exists on paper AND on this computer!
Now back to stitching as the Painter-Man and G put the final coat of paint on the garage and laundryroom. Sheesh! This place didn't look this good when we bought it 23 years ago! Nor has it ever been this empty or quiet. It was filled with the girls' noises and activities for so long, but no more. I'm ready to say goodbye.............
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!
