Williamsburg Trip Day Four - Le Yaca

It is now Saturday.  Time is going so fast!  No time for walking again today.  We get our second free gift.
It is a drawer and a pair of scissors.
This is yesterday's gift:

 Then it is time for Jackie's second class.  Yeah! She has gotten her box of fibers.  So we can work on the little triangular thing.  I get mine all stitched.


It is so much fun to finish something.  Our class is shorter today.  We are done at 11 so we can go to a French restaurant, Le Yaca, for lunch.  Nancy and Molly ride with us.  I realize as we are driving that the restaurant is just across the street from the French bakery we went to yesterday.  It is raining.  I think we have the whole restaurant for our group.  This is one of many tables.

We have several choices of entrees but of course, I want the salmon.  It is very good.  Then the dessert!  Wow, they are fabulous.  BFF got this one:

  I get the chocolate thing.
There is a shot glass of vanilla stuff.  I'm not sure what to do with it but I see people pouring it on the top so I do too.  It is very good.  This is a great place to eat.

We get from Le Yaca and it is time for Giulia's class.  Giulia has a  full box of the pottery cameos so we can exchange ours for another if we want.  I can't decide and ask if I can buy another just in case but she says mine will be fine.

I work on getting my scissors case front done.  I'm pretty proud of myself until Grace's friend says, Oh you changed it.  No I didn't.  Well, she tells me the rhodes stitches were supposed to be eyelets and the eyelet stitches were supposed to be rhodes stitches.  Rats, she's right.  Oh well.  I like it anyway.

The back of the scissors case is just unstitched linen.  Not on mine.  I'm going to stitch a design on the back.  I love the needlebook flower design and it will fit on the scissors case back.
Again, BFF and I are too tired to go anywhere else and we eat at the resort restaurant.  They make their own root beer.  I love it.

  1. Thank you for these last few days of showing this time at `Needle Arts Festival` in Williamsburg. I feel that I could join you. Would love to come one year but too far for me. Love your gifts and enjoy what you have stitched. Looks likes a lovely group of ladies. Happy Stiching.

  2. Were Molly and Nancy from Indiana? IF so, then they are stitchers that I met thru EGA. They are wonderful stitchers!
