Another Video About SFD, Dogs, Patterns and Buttons


I had such a LOVELY day that I was in the mood to make a video instead of typing a chapter in my Blog today.

We were supposed to leave this house today, but as it turns out we have to stay for another week due to Jerry's post op and removal of stitches in his knee.

The weather is pleasant today with sunshine after several cloudy days, and sunshine ALWAYS brightens my day.  It seems to brighten everyone else's too because everywhere I went, people were smiling and friendly.

The young man at Sonic who brought my 1/2 price UNsweet Tea with EASY Peach -- the drink my husband always growls about and acts as though I have ordered some impossible mixture --  was in SUCH A GOOD MOOD, I almost offered him a job at my store.  I think there was a 30 cent tip in the change I gave him for my $1 drink, and you would have thought I had given him a $20 bill.  If he hadn't walked off when he did, I probably would have tried to find one.

Anyway, let me pop my video in here:

And here is the blouse that awaits buttonholes and buttons.

I better go make sure Jerry has gotten his dinner figured out.

He is SO GROUCHY today.  I know it has to be horrible to go through all the chemo, and doctor appointments, and the knee surgery, and now the pain pills; BUT, I don't see why he wants to take it out on me???  Oh, wait!  It's because he LOVES me the most.  I keep forgetting that!  (-;

Honestly, I am really spoiled in that he is almost ALWAYS in a good mood.  That just makes it so much more shocking when he is really grumpy.  This too shall pass, of course, but for now, I'm hiding out as much as possible.

Hugs, Joy


  1. Hmmmm .. getting a message that your video is private. Did you forget to set something???? Or is it at my end?

  2. I'm getting the same message.

  3. Red buttons- they are as eye catching as the red flowers. Always look forward to your posts.

  4. I hope you go with the grey buttons, I think they work best. Never miss any of your blogs, I feel as though I know you and your family personally.

  5. I love athe patterns you got...can you show how you use the SRD w/purchased pattern & make it work...MG

  6. Thanks so much for showing your readers all the great sewing projects you've done with your Sure-Fit Designs kits. And yes, the Fitting Commercial Patterns DVD is coming along. Yesterday we filmed the last of the video that will be incorporated in the new DVD. Now to the editing... My intention is that this DVD will be available sometime in August, so please watch your SFD newsletter announcements.

    I vote for red buttons!

  7. I love the quilt in the background...what patter is that & is there a full lenght pic of it? Also
