Two acorns from the very top band of Ellenor Wyckes, which I'm doing as a stitch along with several people who have met through Nicola's Scarlet Letter Year. They are all farther along than I am, of course. I am going to try to work a band a month, along with the band a month I want to do on Anne Lawle, in hopes that both will be finished by the end of the year.
Meanwhile, we have journeyed to Williamsburg so I can attend a stitching retreat and Dearly Beloved can wander around and eat his way through his favorite restaurants. We have made a good start on that.
Tomorrow those of us attending the retreat will have the chance to view some pieces from Colonial Williamsburg's textile collection in the morning, then we will gather to stitch on the Jamestown Jacket in the afternoon. I think all of us participated in the Plimoth Jacket project, and I am very excited to have the opportunity to work on this as well. In fact, Baby Girl and I hope to come back in a couple of weeks and stitch on this project together one afternoon.
Sometimes I think the best part of my needlework life are the people I have met through it. And I treasure the fact that Baby Girl enjoys plying her needle, too.
