Mobile's Mardi Gras

My brother is really big into the Mardi Gras scene in Mobile, Alabama. He is part of the MOT's which is Mystic of Time...they had their parade on this past Saturday. Here are a few shots of him with his dragon float that he rides on. One pic of him and his youngest daughter, who went down to be with him during Mardi Gras. Also a bit of history for those who may not know about Mardi Gras being celebrated in Mobile. " Before New Orleans, there was Mobile, Alabama-the birthplace of Mardi Gras in America. Mobile, was founded by Roman Catholics from France in 1702 and was home to the first mystic society or "krews", which held America's first Mardi Gras celebration in 1704, 14 years before New Orleans was even founded."

More Stitching....

Worked a bit on my sample, which may turn into a small pocket, still undecided at this point. I have added silver thread french knots and added some glass bugle beads as well as a seam of gimp.
