I do not apologise if you begin to tire of the blog posts that will pop up here and there over the next week; the first Brit Bee Weekender was so fantastic that everyone should gather a group of friends and head off out into the country to sew!
We booked The Stables back in July, and had been planning meals and looking forward to it ever since.
Sadly there were some beautiful faces who could not join us, but they were in our thoughts and prayers; the unstoppable Terri even popped in from LA, via FaceTime, on Friday evening.
I arrived first, and was able to have a good look around and have a cup of tea in the peace and quiet before, well, before the buzz of a dozen sewing machines and the best bunch of friends started chatting, laughing, eating and stitching for the next 66 hours!
The sewing space was perfect…
The kitchen was equipped for anything, even the 30 kilos of baked goods we consumed…
… and quite frankly 3 nights was not long enough!
Of course there were phone calls made to husbands, partners, children and pets (probably), we didn't cast aside all outside responsibilities, but seeing how well those left behind all coped, I see no reason why this shouldn't become an annual occurrence!
Now it won't come as a surprise to those who were following us on instagram, but it was the most productive weekend sewing-wise too, which considering the amount of talking and cake eating that went on, is actually amazing. I will let you see all the things I made tomorrow, and leave you with the picture that sums up the weekend…
Smiling friends, wearing pyjama bottoms and loving every minute!
Today I was home, sewing alone, it wasn't fun.
