1  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / Keeping Birds Away ? on: June 09, 2005 11:19:06 AM
Does anyone have any ideas on how to keep birds away from gardens.  Or more specifically, how to get them to NOT eat my thyme, basil, and pansies?  I don't want to put netting around my containers (balcony garden), but it might have to come to that.  No one I have talked to had ever heard of birds eating basil before.  And most of the garden pest-related literature that I have come across only deals with bugs.

Interestingly, I found many websites detailing how to attract birds to your garden.

Thanks!

2  KNITTING / Projects from the Stitch 'N B**ch Books by Debbie Stoller / Going out with a bag on: January 09, 2005 07:46:45 AM
I made these two simple little purses for my cousins for christmas.  The knitting was really quick, but I didn't use the yarn that was suggested.  I used Patons allure which was pretty cheap, and one bag used maybe half of the 50g ball. 

Anyway, they turned out simple and sparkley, and are just the right size for a fancy evening bag.  I'll definitely be making some more as they are such an easy to make present.  I lined them with some satiny material from the remnants bin.

3  KNITTING / Knitting: Completed Projects / Grandma's Christmas Scarves on: January 09, 2005 07:39:03 AM
Hi Everyone,

I'm a little late in posting these, but I thought I'd post pictures of my cutie pie grandmas and the scarves that I made them for Christmas.  I followed the Reversible Lace Ladders Scarf pattern found on the heartstringsfiberarts.com  website (which doesn't seem to be working right now).  For the blue one I used a silky wool and for the red one I used a bright red mohair.  Each grandma loved hers and was happy with the colour/yarn choice Smiley

Once I got the pattern going the scarves weren't too hard to make, but I still made a lot of mistakes - but it just adds character right??  It was my first attempt at making lace peices.
