Goodness, that last Vermont post was long! Sorry. I’ll try to make this one a little bit shorter. But I’ve got lots of photos to show you.
This is Joni. Her husband drove with her from Kentucky to Vermont and then stayed in the campground down the road from the inn while his adorable wife sewed with her new friends for a couple of days. What a guy, huh? And take a closer look at Joni:
Notice the matching Heather Ross bag and sneakers? Love them!
It’s terrific to get to know everyone who attends these weekends. The one thing they have in common, besides an interest in sewing, is that they are all fantastic people! It’s an honor to hang out with them for a couple of days and get to know each of them better.
Everyone who attended the second sewing weekend got a special surprise. First, they had a chance to visit the costume barn. Here is Rae wearing a vintage beaded dress that fit her almost perfectly. She looked ready for teepee cocktail hour!
And the second surprise was that Denyse Schmidt came to give a special Sunday morning workshop! What could be better?
And Heather, Denyse, and I got a little surprise at the end of the weekend, ourselves. Jean, a veterinarian, was inspired by a story Heather told (I hope she’ll re-tell it on her blog) about the dead mice she and her sister used to dress and pose. Jean doesn’t mind handling dead mice, and she happened to come across a little dead mouse in the garden outside the inn. So she fashioned a tiny Ice Cream Dress for it from Liberty of London scraps and presented it to Heather with a tiny Denyse Schmidt-inspired quilt.
