Shirring and Troubleshooting

Shirring is when you use elastic thread as the bobbin’s thread.

I love the look of a shirred garment. Just love it. And after seeing this tutorial for a shirred bottom too-big shirt, I knew the perfect shirt in my closet that needed this alteration.

And I achieved the desired alteration to my shirt. However, I had many terrible problems.
I tried and tried to shirr with my elastic thread. I cried at one point because of all the problems I had on my quest to create a shirred bottom.

The Stretch Stitch: A Tiny Explanation

There are lots of projects where I've said to use something called a "stretch stitch". 
This type of stitch is necessary to use when sewing with a knit fabric at a point where it needs to stretch, like a waistband of a skirt.

Blogger Problem: Scheduling Posts

For all you other bloggers out there:

I'm having some trouble scheduling posts on Blogger. I used to be able to do this with no problem (by going to "Post Options" and then enter future date/time I wanted the post to publish).

However, it now publishes it immediately. I didn't think this was a problem til I started researching it and found this immediate posting causes Blogger to email all the subscribers that you've created a post!

Scheduling will work once in awhile for me, but not more than one time/day.

Any ideas? Is anyone else being driven insane by this problem?

I'm moving tomorrow and Tuesday, so this is why I won't be posting. I did get one scheduled for Tuesday.
