Love reading about your weekend. Loved being able to share time with you all, too! What a gift you give the folks that come together. Tireless and inspiring - that's you!


It really was a divine break from reality. Such a lovely group of women and what can I say about our hostesses except that they were the mostesess!! Cannot wait to return.


I totally agree with Loretta! Best weekend I have had in a long time!


sounds like so much fun


What a wonderful get away - a gift to one's self. Just yesterday I was digging around in the bookcase looking for inspiration for a winter project and I saw your book. The rug hooking jumped off the page and I dug out my supplies. I am hoping to get them done before the 14th. Serendipity!!!

It looks like it was a perfect weekend. I have got to teach myself how to hook rugs. The felted soap looks adorable too. What a great idea.


The weekend was such a treat. Such attention to detail! Beautiful setting, lovingly prepared meals, thoughtful outings and inspiring crafts. But what made it so special were the open hearts who gathered there. Forever memories!

Thank you for an absolutely marvelous weekend! I still haven't allowed my feet to completely touch the ground! Everything was wonderful. Our fabulous hostesses, scrumptious food, delicous baked goods, FuN crafts, glorious surrounds and a delightful group of kindred spirits who's hearts spilled open with joy and laughter. Thank YOU! Can't wait for an encore! XooX

A quote from your book Charlotte really spoke to me about our Vermont weekend together. It is: There was a definite process by which one made people into friends, and it involved talking to them and listening to them for hours at a time - by Rebecca West. Being in this enviroment, with such creative, kind womem was priceless. Thank you Charlotte, Meleen and John you are the best!


it always looks like such a wonderful time!

So inspirational! Makes me want to jump in and get busy....however, a Vermont getaway would have to come first :)
