I'm a sewing enthusiast in Beacon, New York, with a love of all things retro. This site is all about tutorials, tips, inspiration, and lots of spirited discussion about sewing as it relates to fashion history, pop culture, body image, and gender. My first book, Gertie's New Book for Better Sewing, is now out from STC Craft/Melanie Falick Books! Also look for my line "Patterns by Gertie" from Butterick.
All right, it's gotten even cuter up in here. Behold the Henry pic of the day! I don't know if you'll appreciate two cat posts in a row, readers, but I think such extreme cuteness can't go unblogged. (Plus I so enjoyed all your charming pet comments from yesterday that I just had to keep going with this theme.)
Once again I woke up to a sweet text from Jeff with a Henry photo so I could get my fix while I'm away from home. I thought yesterday's pic was the cutest ever, but I think maybe I was wrong. The composition of this one is quite striking--he looks like he's wandering through a field of wildflowers! (In reality, that is our duvet cover.) And the angelic look heaven-ward is practically heartbreaking. So I may have to revise my stance. THIS may, in fact, be the cutest Henry photo ever.
The thing about Henry, though, is that he's always got more cuteness up his sleeve. Hey, speaking of sleeves! Today was day two of filming my new Craftsy course and sleeves were a hot topic.
Here I am getting primped by my adorable make-up/hair artist, Danica.
The great news about the Craftsy course is that they've sped up the production times so the course will be available in a couple weeks! I will post the trailer here as soon as I have it.
In the meantime, feel free to vote on your favorite Henry photo. Today's or yesterday's?
