Mardi Gras Prep
Flower Headband in Progress
This weekend is the Mardi Gras celebration at the Original Farmers Market (my home away from home). Larry and I have been attending this event for 18 years! Every other year or so I crochet us new hats for the event. We've worn berets, crowns, bucket hats, tiaras, etc. all in the colors of New Orleans: Purple, Green and Gold.Mardi Gras - 2004
I just didn't get around to making a hat for Larry this year. He'll just have to wear last year's crown. I am, however working on a Mardi Gras headband for my ensemble. I like headbands, ever since Regina challenged me to make one from a vintage pattern....I've made several. I found this great blazer last November at the mall in a wild print with a background color of cornflower yellow, along with purple, light olive green and a touch of light orange. It's great looking and I'll be wearing it with the obligatory beads and other purple accessories.Mardi Crown 2005 & 2006
Come on down and join us Saturday and Sunday. We're gonna pass a fine time y'all!
