It is one of those days.
The bad kind of days.

The kind of days where you have to pray.
The only thing you can think is:

Love God.
Love others.
The End.

Blogger is being mean.
It won't upload my 18 pictures
that I spent way too long Picniking.

While angry, teething Janey cried and cried.

So no scarf along post.
For now at least.


But join the

Because all of the cool kids are.

When Blogger comes out of the naughty chair
I'll post.
Peace out.


  1. I've been trying to upload the photo of all my cut fabric for a couple of hours. GRrrr. Hope it gets working soon so I can get sewing. Can't wait!

  2. That's ok with me! I am just going to get cutting tonight!

  3. Have my cutting done. Can't wait to sew:)

  4. You have a really cute assistant!! We r having so much fun with the suspense of this...yippeee!

  5. Just so you can send me another gold star for my awesome cutting skillz today!

  6. oh poo on blogger! I don't think you're the only one having issues today...

  7. Blogger spent most of the evening in the naughty chair around here too! Hate it when that happens!!!!

    I don't have time to sew these days, but I'm enjoying following along! I'm toying with the idea of sewing my own drawstring gift bags, but I haven't decided if this is the year to do it. I'm thinking I should sew them after the holidays so they are ready for next year. Less pressure right? :)

  8. BOOOOOOOOOO! bad blogger! I love Janie, though. And the cute scarf she's rockin!

  9. Argh! Blogger wasn't being nice but Janey has the cutest outfit on EVER! Saw a new christmas rug at Target yesterday that says JOY. Have you seen it? It's so cute and it made me think of you.

  10. Looks like our daughters are around the same age. My lil gal is turning 11 mos in just a few days and we are having a heck of a time cutting teeth so I am definitely feeling your pain right now.

    I hope blogger gets it together soon and I REALLY hope Janey feels better soon.

  11. Oh so frustrating!! I can only relate to that one (the trying to do something while the baby cries and there is chaos everywhere only for it to not turn out anyways). Thanks for trying to do the post. That is worth a whole stinkin lot! And can't wait for the next step. Plus, that little girl is one cute assistant :)

  12. Such a cute pictures wouldn't post frustrating!

  13. Quick tip: You can drag photos from flickr into your blog post. Just open both windows side by side, drag, and drop. No uploading required! The only difference is people won't be able to click on the image to make it larger. Hope that helps you!

  14. I really really really dislike (well, hate actually, but we try no to use that word around here) uploading photos in blogger.

    I use Windows Live Writer to create my posts.

    It's a free download and you create your post entirely on your desktop and then publish. It somehow magically knows all the details off your blog. Love it.

  15. Still waiting for my fabric to arrive and then cut...I'm good with a little time!!

  16. You can also copy and paste HTML from Flickr straight into your post. I have stopped using Blogger uploader unless absolutely necessary. By the way, your fabric stash makes me swoon and I don't even sew!

  17. The slower pace is a good thing for me, because I'm behind a bit. I'm just geting around to cutting some of the others. HA. So, no worries...God works ALL things for the good of those who love Him and are called according to his purpose. :)
    Praying for you...I know how "those" days can be!

  18. I took the plunge, I cut fabric and I felt confident for the first time ever. Thanks Professor Julie!

  19. I adore your blog!
    Took sometime a few nights ago and became captivated with Joy's story...oh so sweet and heartfelt. So lovely that the names of your sweet children all share a bit of Joy! Lovely!
    Oh...and I ADORE...ADORE the scarves! Made me want to go buy a sewing machine so I could follow along and create one of those multi-colored beauties! Such happy fabric! I would love to have you sell them?
