  • Gypsy Heart - I love these! Thanks for the reminder…will have to make them. Just found your blog and so happy I did. I love the food and ambiance of New Orleans! Are you preparing for Mardi Gras yet? 🙂

    Stay tuned for posts and I hope to hear from you again!

  • deeprooted - Though never having made one myself, I can well imagine that a lot of love goes into them: you pick the tissue or alternatively take whatever you can lay your hands on – but fact is, you still chose, and you still decide how it is going together. Also, the whole process certainly takes time, time to think of the person you are making it for…and these are beauties, well done!ReplyCancel

  • Cheryl - Thank you Petra! I’ve got another design in my head I hope to stitch-up this summer.ReplyCancel

     A week before Christmas, our son, Chase, called to remind me to get a sugar glazed ham for Christmas dinner.     Check     And book our annual swamp airboat ride for the day after.     Check (Wind in your hair. Alligators at your feet).      And tell Dad to ready-up the shotguns for […]
