Some year, I will spend Mardi Gras in New Orleans. Yes, it's probably crazy and crowded but I really want to experience it. Instead of catching beads, bar hopping on Bourbon Street, and Cafe du Monde, I will be at Cafe du Starbucks.
E. and I did devour most of a King Cake over the weekend however in celebration.
Om a quilting note: My friends Karin (who frequently disparages machine applique as the "A-word"), has finished her "Peace in the Valley" quilt top (designed by Pat) and appliqued the rick-rack and leaves. Hooray Karin!
On another quilting note: Unable to sleep last night, I finally figured out which pattern to use for my "Morris Garden" bundle. I wonder if this is considered a "new project", which I said I would not start until I finished some old projects. Or is it classified as a UFO since I already have the fabric and now the pattern? I guess I'll spend the rest of the week trying to rationalize starting it this weekend.....
