Reprezenting in New Orleans

I mainly want to talk about being in New Orleans and how I'm loving it thus far, but a quick crafty update first.

I'm really excited about the aprons I've made. They're flipping adorable and I can't wait to make more. Especially some that are more crafty-tool belt-type. With some block prints on them and/or embroidery. Although I bitched about making bias tape, I have to admit that the final product is just so much cooler than it would have been using boring, monochromatic store-bought tape.

I am a bit annoyed with myself because I didn't get any prints made. I've bought some of the necessary tools at least and have sketches done. I probably would've gotten some done if I had a printer and Photoshop at home.

Apparently I've been commissioned to make t-shirts for my coworkers for a conference (again in New Orleans) in September. That should be fun.

Okay so New Orleans is great. I've finally had raw oysters, gumbo and a po' boy. Saw lots of strip clubs and sex shops on Bourbon Street. Some guy sang into a bucket for a coworker. We've eaten at Cafe du Monde already. Amazing coffee (while I loved the beignets, too, but they were nothing new to me. Same exact thing as zeppoles and funnel cake).

Still on the agenda: an Imax movie about the formation of New Orleans by a hurricane in prehistoric times. Oh boy oh boy. The geek in me is too excited. Also, a steamboat ride. Eating at Nola. And more exploring in general.

Not to brag, but it's going to be about 80 degrees this week. Time to get to bed. I have an early an busy day tomorrow!
