Henry Says Relax


Well readers, I'm off! I'm actually writing this from the airport, where Jeff and I are catching a flight to Virginia to spend Christmas with his family. I have a beading project packed, and my finished red lace dress in a bag at my feet, since I couldn't bear to stuff it in the suitcase. (Pictures to come!)

I've been winding things down here this week, and I've decided to take a complete blogging break for at least the next week. I plan to come back refreshed and with many more Crepe tutorials!

I wish you all the happiest of holidays!

P.S. Isn't the above pic of Henry just precious? He takes his belly rubs very seriously.

  7. Adorable cat too. Cats are the great zen experts on relaxing and not taking life too seriously.

  18. Merry Christmas! And Henry is so cute. He reminds me of my childhood cat, who was the sweetest cat ever and lived for 23 years.

  24. I haven't stopped by your blog in a while - I'm thrilled to hear you have a sewing book coming out! I will be first in line to buy it!

  25. Thanks for the well wishes, everyone!

    To those who asked, the fabric Henry is lying on is our duvet cover. We got it at Pottery Barn a few months ago. I love how it feels like you're sleeping in a field of flowers!

    Henry stayed in Queens for the break with his sister Pip and regular visits from the cat sitter. I missed them so! They seem to have spent the entire time playing in a cardboard box. They love that thing.
