Sunday in reflection-colonial times

Some stitched Colonial Williamsburg houses. Stitched by me 30 years ago and still has a place in my heart.
Heading out to DC this week and planning and packing! Last year actually breezed by Colonial Williamsburg and I want to go one day to spend a whole lot longer than I did last time.
Colonial times were just plain simpler. Men were men, ladies were ladies. Simple blessings in life were treasured more.

Even though we don't dress like this nowadays, we can still hold some of the simplicity in our hearts forever.
I like to go to the big cities once a year. It reminds me of fortunate I am to live in a slower paced world.
It refreshes my views on most anything watching the city lights and the busy taxi fly by.

I will be sharing with you some pics of my adventures this week so stay tuned.
In Stitches shop is definitely on my list of places to go.
I can't wait to see in person all the new designs from Nashville this year.!!!!!!

Happy Sunday to you!


  1. Make sure you stop at Haus Tirol when your in Williamsburg. Lovely shop, lots of lovely fabrics, and threads. Also a quilt shop in the same shops. Right near Bush gardens. Enjoy your trip.

  2. My family and I love traveling to Williamsburg! Have a safe journey to DC.

  3. Have a great trip! You are so lucky to be visiting In Stitches right after the Nashville Market. I'm sure there will lots of new designs and other goodies there. Enjoy!

  4. Dearest Jennifer,

    Those are beautiful cross stitched Colonial Williamsburg houses! They are heirlooms and timeless beauties.
    On the island of Curaçao I have started again my cross stitching but I have ordered now stronger reading glasses as I struggled with it. My magnifier's batteries were dead and without any help it was tough. One day I will show this work and also some of my older works that are framed and hanging in our home.
    Love to you,


  5. Safe travels and I hope you enjoy your trip to DC. I also recommend Haus Tirol as well as In Stitches. They are both delightful shops with helpful staff.

    Can't wait to see the pics.

  6. Hope you enjoy your time in williamsburg when you get there. It is one of my favorite places even though I live in Iowa.
    Love your houses. I have recently been fortunate enough to recieve many of the old Williamsburg houses that were charted years ago. I was looking at them again today and dreaming. Maybe in thirty years to come I will have mine stitched.

  7. Congrats! That is one of my favorites - the frame looks perfect!

  8. Enjoy your trip and I look forward to seeing your photographs.
