stitching, quilting, fabric, projects
We’ve just spent the weekend with friends in New Orleans. A whistle stop tour led by the lovely Sarah included a Zephyrs baseball game, a colourful parade along Bourbon Street, jazz at Preservation Hall (thank you Neil), Hurricane cocktails, gumbo, jambalaya, shopping in the French Market, vintage thrifting, upcycled furniture on Magazine Street, fantastic architecture and a boat trip on the bayou.
There was a free jazz festival in full swing so the place was heaving with people partying, very colourful characters and lots of cocktails. New Orleans has an open policy allowing drinks on the streets, unusual for the US. It means that everyone is free to roam around and soak up the atmosphere, listen to the music in various venues and all in all have a good time. It also means everyone is very merry 24 hours a day!
I can’t believe I didn’t take any pics of the partying…… but don’t ferns go well with ironwork!
The boat ride along the bayou was a quiet interlude to the craziness.
And look what I bought home as a momento of our trip! (…………no not the alligator)
Snowflake garland blue Pyrex….found in the French Quarter………. I know how to have a good time 🙂
