Today is my #2 baby girl's birthday. She is 41 and that number really makes me feel old. She is on the right in this picture.
Of course, back on the 17th of this month my #1 baby girl had her 48th birthday. She's the one on the left in the picture. So, this feeling old thing is sort of familiar.
Baby Girl #3 is in the middle and she was 36 in January. My girls were all fairly close (but not in age) growing up. Unfortunately now for them they are separated by many miles. This picture was taken a while back when they all met up in San Antonio where #3 lives. They had a great sisters visit from all accounts. It's too bad they don't get to do that more often.
Today they were teasing me about Tasha (see yesterday's post) being my favorite now. Hardly a comparison. Although........I DID forget yesterday to mention that you can see more pictures of Tasha in my Flicker pictures if you are so inclined!
Between them they have 7 kiddos which we don't see too often. They range from age 21 down to a 6 yr old who is in 1st grade this year.
So, now you know a little more about me. I must say they all appreciate my embroidery and crazyquilting efforts even though sometimes it takes me a long time to get things completed.
The thing I've always been best at is having babies and procrastination!
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!
