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.

Wandering to Williamsburg

Baby Girl and I are in Williamsburg.

We came to stitch on the Jamestown Jacket.

This is part of what she did today:

This is part of what I did today:

This is the snake I stitched the last time I was here, but which somehow didn't get photographed.

I wish we could stay over tomorrow and stitch some more, but we both have to be at work on Monday.

There is, however, a very devoted group of volunteers, many of whom have given their week-ends and every other spare moment to see this project complete.

I have heard that the designs created for this project will appear on a number of items available for purchase at the gift shops at Jamestown at some point in the future.  My hope is that somewhere along the way, someone will decide to offer embroidery kits using the motifs. 

Baby Girl and I would both be delighted to add them to our stashes.


  1. I think it's wonderful that you and your daughter are doing this. How far along is the project?

    1. They will absolutely finish by their deadline (end of March) since most of the big pieces are stitched. In fact, a coif was added since the work was going so well.

  2. So cool that you both are working on this!!
