In my part of the world we say you are a fool if your passion for a pursuit overcomes all practical sense. I am a stitching fool, and I stitch foolishness.

Crab Cakes at Christianna Campbell's

We are in Williamsburg. We had a relatively uneventful drive (aside from the semi that tried to run us off the road).  We spent a couple of hours wandering around Jamestown, finding out what this season's dig has literally uncovered.  We have checked into our hotel room.

And we have had crab cakes at Christianna Campbell's tavern. It is a tradition on our first night in Williamsburg to eat there. Apparently we had done this often enough that the re-enactor who plays Mistress Campbell recognizes us.

I was going to take pictures, but I forgot.

The early bird class and the opening of the boutique are tomorrow. I am heading to bed to be ready for both. Dearly Beloved finds it dangerous to be around either.


  1. I think I need to do this event next year. How does Dearly Beloved entertain himself while you are busy having stitchy fun? I am from that area (Hampton) but don't know whether to bring hubby or not....... would probably be easier if I didn't have to worry about him being alone all day lol

  2. This is the closest I will ever get to Williamsburg so eagerly looking forward to your posts.

  3. Ann: I will be in Williamsburg this afternoon for registration, boutique and the dinner! I hope to have an opportunity to meet you! Maybe I will be in one of your classes!

  5. Have a wonderful time! Can't wait to see your posts!
