Here are some examples of the door decorations:
One of the locals going to open up the Millinery Shop...I hope she changes her shoes!
The Capital Building
The Courthouse all decked out for the holidays...notice the stockades to the right of the building! I've put Julia in them before!
We had a wonderful trip...always do! Since we started reenacting this time period you notice so much more than just the normal touristy stuff! My comment earlier about the colonists shoes...believe me I know the period correct shoes are not comfortable at all and I can understand her wearing something comfortable to walk to work (and most employees must walk a couple of blocks to their building) but I hope she changes into her colonial shoes before people start coming in! By the way...we were there very early taking pictures.
I found more Sheepies while I was there--
The large one came with a name...Wellington so I think the little finger puppet is also Wellington Jr. That's the name of one of the sheep "on staff" at Williamsburg. They are, of course, "period correct" Leicester Longwools.
This one is holding it's own bag of wool!
I hope Anne Margaret is reading...
This hen found a coop!
On the Knitting front--
I finished all the socks!
AAAAAHHHHH--Knitting Freedom! All the Christmas presents are done!
I've started a couple of dog sweaters for my neighbors new little cuties!
I'm planning to start something that I've put off--my knitting fear--steeking! But I must give it a shot!
Other items in the works...a sweater vest for my Dad, to conquer that Swallowtail Shawl and more...socks!!
Doesn't sound much like freedom huh?? But what can I say...I love to knit!!
Oh...and Santa's secret is out---
Keep on Knittin' & Spinnin'!!
