Weekend Update

Mardi Gras kicked off this weekend. It looked like parades were going to be postponed or cancelled because of all the rainy weather we had, but the krewes lucked out. It rained off and on, but it mostly held off when the parades rolled. Today and tomorrow there are no parades, but come Wednesday, they'll be non stop till Fat Tuesday. I've lived here all my life and I've done my fair share of parades. Sometimes 3 and 4 in one night....not anymore!! Just can't hack it anymore! LOL

The only one I still like to see is Endymion. It's known as one of the "super krewe parades". They've got one of the most beautiful and spectacular parades you'll ever see. They have beautifully lit floats that are double and triple decker floats. People start staking out their spot days in advance. This year Kid Rock is the grand marshal and I'm not a huge fan of his so I may not walk down there to catch it. Oh, did I mention that my friend lives 2 blocks from the route?? So, I may not walk down to watch the parade, but I'll have the wonderful porch view and catch all the characters walking over to see the parade. I think that's more fun than the parades sometimes.



I didn't do too much this weekend, but work feverishly to finish Prosperity. I just love the way it turned out. I'll definitely be sending this to my friend, Linda, in Iceland to work her magic on :)

Next up is catching up on the Spirit Sampler. It won't take me no time considering the next 40 rows or so is stems and leaves :)

Prosperity turned out great. Sounds like you've had as much rain as we did.

Prosperity is beautiful. I love oriental items. I have several in my bedroom! One is a large stitched pieced "Mai Ling" that I did several years ago.

Prosperity looks really good! And Linda has already done a tremendous finishing job on your stitching as I have seen on her blog. I'm looking forward to seeing how this will be finished by her.
