Happy New Year Everyone! I hope 2008 holds only wonderful things for you and yours. And especially for you Loads of stitching & artistic inspiration. For now, G and I are taking off on a short vacation away to visit my brother. Don't worry that I've fallen off the blog-a-sphere. I'll be back in a few days with perhaps some wonderful things to share. I say that because there is a Hobby Lobby where we are going and given the chance to cruise through a HL store, I can get into BIG trouble, doncha know? I'm taking a lot of stitching with me including an embroidery project I'm doing for my brother. I will share it and my progress when I get back. Stitch On!
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!
