More Thanksgiving on the Bayou

I took my quilt to grandma mc's to finish the binding...I came by to work on it and I found my quilt busy taking a nap with her. Well, first things first. I can wait.
Yes, they really live on bayous in Louisiana. ... and they fight alligators in their overalls. (that's for you, K.)
Oldest and dearest came to see Dad for his birthday. Oldest friends, of course.
Yes we really roast pigs, cochon de lait style. It's under there, isn't it Zach and Kyle?
and we sing on the back porch.
and make bread pudding. I'm very animated aren't I?

And a good time was had by all. Y'all come back now, you here?


  1. I wanna go wrestle gators with the Louisiana folk!
    I'm so glad the quilt was having a nap - you know you've done a good job if someone can't resist sleeping under it.

    cochon de lait sounds so much nicer than roast pig, doesn't it?

  2. I discovered your blog through etsy. I just made a purchase from your shop. As soon as I saw you named your blog "Fabric Snob" I HAD to check it out! I love it and will be coming back!
    I went to high school in Sherman, Tx. I grew up in Longview and spent lots of time in Louisianna!
    Great blog, and great etsy shop!

  3. Thanks, Kathryn. Yes, we are north of Mckinney, so people joke that you go to oklahoma and turn back one exit. I enjoy it, but Louisiana has more colorful characters, huh?

  4. Enjoy the blog and the author so much.

  5. thanks honey. you and mom, best most awesome fans EVER!
