Weekend in Vermont

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:

  1. WOW!! The Blueberry Hill Inn looks like an incredible place to stay!! I’d love to stay there someday. I know I’ve said it a million times already, but it was great to meet you and I truly enjoyed your “jaw yapping” at nido ;)

    p.s. thank you for the blog/photo love!!

  2. Awesome getaway! Everything looked beautiful. Your one lucky gal:) I also like that B-Side Metalworks Sewing Machine Charm necklace;) Looks great with your Washi Dress.

  3. What a great weekend (and great photos)! Wish I could have made it (we are also in New England). Have you ever read “A Farmer’s Alphabet” by Mary Azarian? I’m not sure if it’s still in print or not, but a friend gave me a copy, and that picture of the stove really brings it back. You should check it out–it’s beautifully Vermont.

  4. You guys are sooo cute! And hand embroidered? Seriously? That is beautifully genius. Looks like a great place and a great time.

  5. What a fun weekend and a beeeautiful shop! And I love seeing “real-life” picture of bloggers. You get to see what they really look like when there isn’t time to get the lighting just right or make their lips look pouty :)

  6. Dresses are beautiful; I love all the different takes on the same pattern. I guess I’m lucky – I live half way between Nido and Blueberry Hill – and Vermont is truly wonderful in the fall. Does Blueberry Hill still sell their cookbook? There is an awesome recipe for Gingersnaps that is a family favorite.
