A quick post here to let you know that I'll be gone for awhile. We are headed in the morning to AZ to spend some time with my brother who has stage 4 lung cancer. He is my only sibling and our parents passed away in the early 1990's. He has 4 children who have all arrived ahead of us in AZ.
I originally started this quilt for him to be used for chemo treatments. However, the doctors have decided he is too weak for chemo and he is now home under Hospice care.
Would you believe I had enough cat prints in my stash to cut 59 different 6" blocks? I only used 45 unique ones in the quilt; one of the corner blocks is an accidental repeat! The back is fleece and if you click on the picture it will take you to my Flickr pictures where you also can see the label I made for the back. It has pictures of my brother's two exotic Chaussie cats named Bonnie & Clyde.
So, I don't know when I'll be back, but I will be back blogging soon. If I don't make it back before Christmas, I wish you all a Very Merry Christmas if you celebrate the holiday. And may all your stitches be snug!
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!
