A brilliant day in southern Virginia - and a fine day to visit historic Jamestown! These are photos from a visit we made in August.
May I share some of the sites we enjoyed this day?
We travelled across the James River on the ferryPocahontas!
Locals bid us farewell!
The three ships constructed to match the originals: Susan Constant, Discovery, and Godspeed were amazingly small for so many to have traveled on!
We enjoyed the detail of each building in the recreated Jamestown Settlement. Here are a few shots around the village:The Govenor's assistant - dressed in wool on a very hot day.
The one glass window from outside
Some locals.Herbs drying everywhere!
The herb gardenAnd my special favorites - the Sunflowers!

Here's a special little Fairy Butterfly bear made from silk fur. He's such a sweetie (made for a special birthday gift) and I've been having some fun with Photo Lab on my iPhone.
What do you think??
And now for my Grandkitty Frodo!

This sweet Little Miss arrived on Easter! I made her for Kim from a pattern from Mo Malron at Crochet Objet. I've ordered cotton from her Etsy shop Crochet Objet and used that for little bunny's body.
I'd like to take you on a photo shoot around the cherry tree in my front yard:
The blossoms start out white and turn pink before they blow away. They are never on the tree long enough.
Happy Spring to all!!

Here's Molly and her special friend! Molly is about 3 7/8 inches tall. Her fur is a delicate mauve color and is viscose I ordered from Italy. I hope you'll visit the preview to see all the wonderful bears (this is a "bears only" show - though they can have friends!) on the preview page!
All the Bears have been adopted! Thanks everyone!!

Once a year, those interested in the needle arts have a wonderful show to look forward to here in the Hampton Roads area of Virginia. It lasts for 4 days and I have been know to go each of the four days in years past. Yesterday was the first of the four days this year, and I made a quick run through checking out the hundreds of vendors - and stopping at my favorite. Each year I buy threads, beads, tiny buttons and trims from this shop:
I first saw Cindy Oravec on the Simply
Quilts show years ago! Imagine having her and a bit of her shop right here!
Do check her website: www.quiltersfancy.com
I'm off soon for another day of shopping!
