My trip started Friday morning at 7 AM. This Mama of two does not get to experience peaceful road trips very often, so I really enjoyed the ride. Eight and a half hours and one audiobook later, I pulled into Blueberry Hill Inn.
I loved getting to know Heather and Denyse. They were both kind, funny, easy to talk to, and completely real. It is funny... You know how you get an idea of who an artist is by their artwork? That was definitely the case here. Their art speaks volumes about who they both are.
So what did we do all weekend? We sewed, of course. We also dined on gourmet food, shopped at antique stores, visited an art gallery, talked for hours over coffee and wine, snacked on Vermont cheeses... We crammed a lot of fun into one too short weekend.
Throughout the weekend, I made a few projects from Heather's Weekend Sewing book (a tote, a baby kimono, and bloomers) and a improv zipper bag with Denyse. I left feeling feed and inspired, not only from them, but all of the other amazing ladies there. With definite plans to return to Vermont for another weekend sewing retreat...
