Here are the pictures of our re-en-actors from my Colonial Williamsburg workshop last week. The first, a slave petitioner who sent a letter to the Bishop of England to plead for his help in freeing christian slaves, second, Anas Todkill, a man that traveled with John Smith, and third, a surveyor in Virginia Colony. These men were amazing actors and excellent teachers. Wish I could bring them in to my classroom. Wish you all could have been there to see them. I encourage everyone to plan a trip to Williamsburg and Jamestown in the future to witness the excellent re-enacting of history. My family and I will be attending in the not so distant future.
Just another inspiration to get to work on my reproduction fabric quilts!
Have a lot scheduled this weekend though. Not sure what will be getting accomplished on the quilt front.
It is almost time for my February miniature tutorial though. Guess I better get the last step finished on that!
