Bayou Segnette - Saturday

Here are a few more of the paper piecing that I had on sale at Bayou Segnette. I think my alligator was my favorite to make.

Bayou Segnette weekend crop setting was in the state park in Westwego, Louisiana in the Group camping quarters. Seen lots of my scrapping friends. There was Peggy and Shey (Sugar & Spice), there was 3 of the Scrapping Cats (Kyle, Roni, and their mom Sam), A group of ladies called the Creative Juices (Geri, Nancy, and Ms. Dee, Wanda, Ms Alice - each member had a juice name), Debbie Gauthreaux the lady in charge and old schoolmate, and even meeting a new scrapping friend her name is Charlene.

Saturday evening (5:00 - 7:00 p.m) the state park had a hay ride and trick a treating for all the campers in the park. So everyone in the crop room went outside and sat on the benches handing out Halloween candy and just chatting it was a nice time for visiting ladies that you only see a couple of times a year at the crops. Several of the ladies had their children and grand children come by for some treats. Such cute Halloween costumes.

Saturday I taught a class of 9 at 3:00 p.m. and it was a beautiful sunny cool day in the State Park. The paper piecing that we did was a stack of pumpkins with the top pumpkin wearing a witch’s hat. One of the ladies that was suppose to be in my class was also scheduled for another class. So when she reappear I gave her a private lesson, and the paper piecing ended up matching the paper on her Halloween layouts that she was doing. After the class I set my little stand up on the porch. I must say that I did very well on my sales, and would like to thank each and everyone that bought from me. THANK YOU THANK YOU!

When leaving the park that evening there was tons of rabbits lining the roadway. Also, Debbie was kind to give me some food to take home - some good old fashion home cooking - 2 stuff peppers, vegetables, bread and two chocolate cupcakes.

My finds while surfing the net.
