Wonderful food, entertainment, and tours.
Here I am on the porch of Oak Alley sugarcane plantation. Beautiful pre Civil War home.
No matter where we go I seem to be able to find a quilt or two. This is an example of a pre Civil War quilt made by slaves on one of the plantations.
This quilt in remarkable condition was seen at a cotton plantation that has been operating sense the 1790's through today.
This quilt pattern is Solomon's Puzzle. Having recently done a quilt with drunkard's path blocks I am thinking I would like to do a small wall hanging with this pattern myself. I really like the layout.
We were just there too! Loved the paddleboat up the Mississippi River!!ReplyDelete
Hi Donnalee! I have always wanted to take one of the riverboat cruises. I hope you write a post with more details - how did you like your cabin? Were there a lot of people onboard, and did you get to see as much of the ports as you wished? I know they give you just a taste so you want to visit again. How cool! Love that porch on the plantation. It looks like it was cool enough to wear a jacket. I would have expected it to be warmer. ~smile~ RoseanneReplyDelete
