(Of course I made a quilt called Mardi Gras Memories, pattern found HERE.)
Did you know that I grew up near New Orleans? Did you know that Mardi Gras is a way of life if you live in south Louisina? You can't 'go' to Mardi Gras, it surrounds you!
We had King Cake parties every friday at school. The person who got the 'baby' brought the cake the next friday. We all dreamed of getting the baby!
We saw the decorations everywhere we turned. The music, the lights, the beads, the parades, the king cakes...I miss every single thing about it. One day I will return to experience it again.
Laissez le bon temps rouler!
