Every few months or so, Mr Rae and I drop the kids off with his parents and go somewhere fun for the weekend. Last weekend it was Vermont, where we stayed at Blueberry Hill Inn, where I’d been wanting to return since I first visited as a participant at Heather Ross’ fantastic Blueberry Hill Weekend Sewing workshop two years ago. Some pictures from our weekend:

Sunday afternoon we headed over to Burlington where I gave a short talk on sewing women’s garments for the Nido 3rd Anniversary Bash. There were so many people there and it was fun to meet new faces and see others again, many of them wearing Washi Dresses (yay! I can’t tell you how incredibly fun and gratifying it is to see people enjoying the pattern so much!). There were incredible drinks and snacks as well, including these amazing multicolored macarons which apparently I could not stop photographing.
Rochelle (who works at Nido and blogs at Lucky Lucille — if you like sewing women’s garments you should definitely check it out) wrote a fantastic post about the party, so be sure to check out her post (click here). She was kind enough to let me borrow a few pictures of me yapping my jaw:

Thanks for a fantastic weekend, Vermont!! We’ll be back.
