Back Soon! (Plus Fancy New Widget Action)

Hello, my lovely readers! As I mentioned yesterday, I've been a bit under the weather as of late. I'm also behind on everything blog-related. (Taking pictures, videotaping tutorials, etc.) Plus I had a bad day at work! Can you believe it? Anyway, I wanted to let you know that I will be taking a little blog vacation, but plan to be back (refreshed!) in a couple days.

Oh, also! Have you seen my new Google Reader widget on my sidebar? It's on the righthand side under my blogroll, labeled "Gertie, Girl Reporter." I love this new widget so much it hurts. Every time I see something in my Google Reader that I think you guys might like, I just click "share" and it pops up there for you all to see! Isn't that genius? So if you're looking for some good reading, make sure to check it out. I update it every gosh darn day!
Until next time . . . happy sewing!

P.S. The above picture is my all-time favorite shot of Henry. (I actually have it screen printed on a t-shirt. Yes, you read that right.) Isn't it hilarious? I think it's very LOLcat worthy.

  7. I'm sorry to hear you're under the weather! Gertie, I love your blog. I've been carefully reading and watching the coat-focused efforts and I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your thoughtful, charming comments and examples. I may actually make a coat myself this year. Having watched you doing it step by step makes it seem so much less intimidating.

  8. I love to hear that you have a screen printed shirt of this photo! I hope you get to feeling more "in tune" (yes, I'm a dorky musician) soon! Mini vacations are the best medicine for that. I await with baited breath your peter pan collar tutorial!

  11. Aw... So sorry you had a bad day! :( Crummy days + feeling like you're drowning under a pile of "to-do's" always stinks, imho. :p But, a break is always just the thing! Hope you enjoy your blogging break and come back rested and refreshed! :)

  12. You deserve a break. You have been setting yourself such a pace these past months. I know I'd have long withered!

    Hope you feel better soon.

  14. Aww, feel better and enjoy your rest! I have a hard time keeping up with your wonderful posts -- I marvel at your output! No worries, we'll all be here when you return. :)

  15. Get well soon!
    No doubt your mind is busy plotting all the cool stuff you wish you could be doing :)

    Just a tip - peppermint tea always makes me feel better. (make it strong if you have congestion!)

  16. Hope you're having a nice break! Like a few of my fellow commentors, I've been amazed at the quantity and quality of your posts! Taking a break from everything is sometimes the only way to go. I'm having a small vacation from life today - not seeing anyone and only doing things that are for me, like baking, sewing and then I plan to see my favorite english tv-detective =)

    Wish you feeling better soon!

  18. Get better soon, dear Gertie! Yes you do deserve a break.

    That Google widget looks super useful. I wonder if they have something like that for WordPress!

  19. Have a good rest. I just posted this listing in my shop and thought of you and some of your readers. A romper and skirt set that is very retro.

  20. Ah zut !
    Where am I going to get my daily fix of vintage, geeky glamour, wit and to-die-for sewing while you're away?
    But I'll be sure to check your widget - I already love your "Girl reporter" notes.
    Enjoy your rest, relax and feel better soon.

  21. He's so cute! I used to have a cat almost exactly like him. His eyes were very very green. I'm not sure if Henry's eyes are the exact same colour, but I do get teary everytime you post a picture of him.
