It's been awhile since I posted, oh my how time flies when you're having fun!
One thing that held my attention was a trip to New Orleans (Nawlins) with my sister Michelle!
This is a picture of the Natchez, the steamboat we almost took a luncheon cruise on - the day we were supposed to go, we overslept and couldn't get ourselves together!
There it goes... pretty steamboat though...
Someone recommended Mother's as a good place to eat with decent prices and great food...
One of the first things we did, even before getting settled in the hotel, was head to Mother's for breakfast - look at all that food!
I think I ate maybe a third of it, and my opinion? Do not, I repeat do not go all the way to Nawlins for breakfast at Mother's! Nuff said.
Michelle was talking about Bourbon Street at night, what a hoot!
Lots and lots of people walking in the street, they rerouted traffic to accommodate all the pedestrians.
We got there around 8 pm and it was already crowded, who knows how it looked at midnight! Here are a few street scenes...
People (mostly tourists) wandering in one bar and out the other... I think New Orleans may be the only city in the US where you can walk down the street with an alcoholic drink. People dressed in their Bourbon Street finery - cross dressers, "live statues", tap dancers... More on my trip later!
Meanwhile I've been trying out alternate blocks with the Idaho Square Dance blocks, can't get a good hook on it somehow.
I chose to make a star with a 4-patch center; notice the 4-patch corner stones on this one.
The light block seemed to disappear...
Dark was way too ... dark!
I had sorta settled on the medium block using white and black...
But now that I look at it on the screen, I might go with the light block although I need to make a few more to see it better. But I don't want to make that many test blocks!
Have a great Monday, sew forth and sew on til later!
