As I unpacked my stash over the past few months, everytime I opened another box I hoped I would find it. Recently we decided to bring home a few more boxes and a couple pieces of furniture. I decided to bring home all my boxes of dolls and their "things" as well. I planned to go through them and perhaps find a few things for G's garage sale on Saturday. Sort of a 2nd downsizing were my thoughts.
After dealing with almost all the boxes, I slit the tape on this one and opened it with a sigh. And then a scream! There was my "Nana's Kitchen" project along with the project's other fabrics! I had used the finished block and the other fabrics for the wallhanging I had planned as CUSHIONING for some of my more fragile dolls. And then I didn't say so on my very detailed inventory.....heck, it didn't even say "some fabrics" under that box number. So much for being organized!
After about 6 mos. of looking, I can't stop looking at this block and stack of fabrics. Needless to say, this project has moved up the list of my UFO's - near the top it is now! Color me SO Happy!
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!
