A couple of my hooking buddies (Sue and Linda) and I went to New Orleans to attend a workshop led by Carrie Martin. Yes, we had a great time and yes, it was HOT! Believe it or not, the room where we hooked as so cold we needed a sweatshirt. We did Bourbon Street -- what an eye-opener. The food was incredible and so was the hospitality. We hope to see all of our new Louisiana and Mississippi girlfriends soon.
