When Frank worked for the various incarnations of Dresser they would secure a place on St Charles Avenue and cordon off a street corner to set up port-a-potties, food and an open bar. They would have customers meet them down there. From that corner they would catch the three big Mardi Gras Day parades.
Can't beat that with a stick!! If you are going to do Mardi Gras, that is the way to go!! Most people aren't that lucky though. I would go sometimes, but Frank spent time with his customers and I found it more exciting to stay home and sew.
Like I did yesterday while Frank worked. At The Quilt Haus I was able to get the 4 quilts trimmed. Well, maybe it was 3.
The Breaking Bad, the T-Shirt Backs, Southwest, The Saint. Nope, 4.
Sad thing is, I STILL have not reduced my list! I am just moving them up the ladder! Still, it is progress.
I have a few tops and backs sitting by the long arm to be quilted. And I got two borders on the Batik Curves. I need a cool name for that one so I will have to see what is going on in my world. Maybe I should call it Hillary's Downward Spiral.

I am really having to dig deep to find some of the quilt tops buried deep in the recesses of the quilt room! But they are just as exciting as any of the new ones! Sometimes even more so!
