My husband and I went away for a week.  The first stop on our trip was by the Quiltery in Fairfield where he picked out the above jelly roll and layer cake.  He wants me to make him a quilt.

While on our trip he also bought me these two bundles of fabric in Williamsburg just because I liked the colors.
We stayed ocean front at Virginia Beach.  That is where we met and lived the first 3 years of our marriage.
We took lots of day trips.  We had a great day visiting Williamsburg and touring.  I had been there when I was in fourth grade, lets just say a long long long time ago!  I had not been able to tour the Govenor's Palace then, but on this trip we did.
I love these arched trees in the garden behind the Palace.

I had always wanted to go on a carriage ride and my husband made sure I got to go.  He is always so sweet and since we love doing the same things we always have so much fun together.
We had been to Jamestown and Yorktown with the children a few years ago, but we went again and had a great time.
We stopped where ever we wanted to and just enjoyed the view.
Growing up I spent every weekend on the Blue Ridge Parkway or Skyline Drive with my family so they are near and dear to me.  While away we drove the Colonial Parkway.  It is just as beautiful if not as long.
We had to leave and it was sad because we were enjoying ourselves so much, but I missed my sewing machines and now I have new projects to work on!
Sew Long for Now!

how can I not comment on this wonderful post!? Sounds like you had a great time in my old stomping grounds. We lived in Wmsbg for 10 years and such memories in the pictures you posted.

Love your new fabric from the Quiltery. Have fun working on your new projects!
