The housework is a given, the quilting not so much. I have errands to do but it is still difficult for me to drive. I can neither grab the steering wheel nor spin it to make a turn.
So Monday yesterday (on Sunday I had to meet a donor at the Little Village Restaurant, this is such a tough job!) when I had to go meet with a CAAWS donor, Frank was able to rearrange his schedule and be in town. We had lunch at Copeland's New Orleans (I had the Eggplant Pirogue. A "pee'-roge " is a little, flat bottomed skiff like boat that is used to pull in your crawfish or crab traps. One man can handle it since it is like the size of a canoe.) ( that way you don't have to share your crabs if you only get a couple dozen!) I guess the flatness of the pecan crusted eggplant rounds filled with crabmeat and French bread stuffing and topped with some marinated crab claws look like a little boat! You know Popeye's Fried Chicken? Al Copeland and my father were good friends. Mr. Al loved to run his cigarette racing boats in Lake Pontchartrain, and my father would get sick every time! But that was nothing that some good stiff bourbons couldn't cure!
OK. here are the three tops I completed at the retreat. And the zig zags from Sujata Shah's book Cultural Fusion.
There is also the Saint's quilt top but I cannot find it anywhere at the moment. And no photos of it. Geez.
I am pretty sure it happened!
