...came down to the University today to give us a taste of weaving with Travis Meinolf's super easy to use back loom. Helen and I had a super lunch time creating a little section for what will become a blanket made by the people of Birmingham. The one in the picture (with Travis) was made by the people of San Francisco.
(here's a bit I made!!)

Today D and I went out of town to the plantations and checked out Houmas house and Oak Alley meandering our way back along the edge of the river. No armadillos spotted but it was a super drive and we got really close to the train going over the Huey Long bridge next t us!
I headed off to New Orleans on Saturday and by Sunday morning we were all pottering around the French Quarter! First stop brunch at the Court of the two Sisters - beautifully draped in wisteria and delicate jazz being played in the courtyard as we ate a tasty brunch of eggs benedict, New Orleans King cake and crawfish. Of course we then had to stretch our legs and had a good browse around the Quarter before heading back to D&S's house for a spruce up before a special tea at NOLA - delicious fish and fabulous desserts, even a little becandled ice cream for me. A super day!
