Little Miss Muffet...

As we depart in the wee hours this morning for Williamsburg, Virginia, I'd like to share a sweet image from another of my antique cards.

This is Little Miss Muffet and her spider on a vintage J.P. Coats & Clark sewing card. Have fun using it or just adding it to your image collection.

Handsome has been invited to perform with the Williamsburg Consort next week. He's in for a full week of multiple rehearsals (usually three a day!), culminating in a concert on Thursday evening. We're looking forward to it, to be sure! This is our first year attending, even though he was invited last year. An emergency surgery in Boston left him unable to go, and he was so disappointed. Not this year, though!

While he's in rehearsals, I'll be walking in Colonial Williamsburg, knitting on a cardigan currently in process, and completing those granny squares I started on our trip to Wisconsin. I purposely set them aside knowing that I'd have more travel time to complete them. I also have decided what they will become, but I'll share that with you later.

Williamsburg in September is sure to be a beautiful sight, and you can be sure that I'll be taking lots of photographs to share with you. I'll be on a mission, too. A few souvenir requests from my girlfriends and a skein of yarn for me - spun from the wool of the Williamsburg flock of Leicester Longwools. You can count on hearing more about them!

Donna,

I'm loving your blog and I appologize for not getting back to you sooner on the very nice and encouraging comments you left on mine a few months ago. Scout - yes - the nick-name came from 'To Kill A Mockingbird'. When we lived in England we had several people tell us that she reminded them of the little girl on the movie (no doubt because of her American accent, and her wise approach to life).

We are going to Williamsburg in November!! We've been going every year since we moved back to the U.S.!! We call it the "Great Nerd Migration", and we love every minute of it! I'll be researching into Colonial cooking methods up there this year, so it'll be work and pleasure for us too!!

Haha! Last year my three-year-old ran into one of the gift shops and grabbed a hat and just ran like hell down the street!! Street urchin!!!

Have a great time!! I love your joyful spirit and the calm happiness of your blog!! Thanks for visiting Scout's blog, too!! It means the world to her!!

Hugs,
Shannon

Enjoy your time in Williamsburg. That's wonderful that your husband has been invited to perform with the Consort. I'm sure you'll have a fabulous week exploring.

Morning to you two! Happy trails, and happier arrivals! Love the Little Miss Muffet card - we are so very into nursery rhymes and fairy tales currently. Last night Rowan nailed all of the verses of sing a song of six pence - except that she sings it "Sing a song of FIVE pence..." No doubt on account of her being five and the world revolving around that fact. "It even says on this puzzle mom, 'Ages 5 and up!'"
