are cauliflower leaves edible? it seems like a waste to just throw them away.

stellato escuro, i think you mean marbling.

you could do some kind of mosaic on the pot.

yes i know that IO , but there are special ones made for pets that can stay on with snaps, velcro or string/ribbon ,

then you would make a big triangle and put velcro on it.

pets have paws/claws/wings etc. and cant put their own bandanas on by themselves

no, but that is true however you make your clothes.

if you can knit, here, i came across this the other day:
http://www.knitty.com/ISSUEfall03/PATTpenny.html

a suggestion: baby clothes? you may want to alter them to put the arm holes nearer the front and make the neck hole bigger.

i just remembered my boyfriend's family has for their dog something like a blanket with holes in, but that is only to keep it warm in the winter and not to look "cute".

i hope your sister realises that her dogs may not appreciate their new wardrobe and may tear up their new clothes!  Shocked it is hard even to get some children to wear clothes, let alone animals.

the holes in the bottom are for drainage, so you would have to be careful watering it to avoid drowning the roots. i notice that this one has some rocks there, which would help as the water would pool there instead of waterlogging the soil.

although your post is quite difficult to understand, i take it you are asking if you can use "regular" paint on a t-shirt. well, there is no such thing as "regular" paint. it would depend on the type of paint, but generally you should be cautious about using things for anything other than what they're designed for. the paint could run or come off in the wash all over your other clothes, it could stiffen the fabric of your t-shirt, it could come off onto anything it touches, or it could fade after a couple of washes.

i've never heard of anyone using spray paint on clothes.

use fabric paint, or if you do want to try another sort of paint, be aware that it might go wrong.

err, my experience of interior decorating tells me that if you were to use wall paint, it would definitely not come out in the wash!

you can get glass paint in craft shops and art shops. it's quite easy to find and simple to use.

to cover a whole vase with the paint i'd recommend using a large-ish brush for more even coverage.


alternatively you could try leaving the vase plain and tint the water red with food colouring.

for cheap yarn, i go to the market.

a note on wool allergy:

i did a google search and came up with this
http://www.textilelinks.com/author/rb/990227.html
http://www.woolfestival.com/articles/THE%20WOOL%20INDUSTRY%20FACES%20A%20PRICKLY%20QUESTION%20ARE%20PEOPLE%20ALLERGIC%20TO%20WOOL.htm

so basically in most people it's not an "allergy" as such, just a sensitivity to the size and texture of the fibres.

i had been thinking about ordering some mohair-acrylic off a website but wasn't sure if i would react to it. i guess it will just be a matter of first trying to find something mohair with no wool in it and seeing if it itches.

i don't really know what "fingering weight" means (US terminology?). rowan 4-ply or glace cotton?


i am also allergic to wool. do you know if it is usual for people with wool allergies to also be allergic to mohair etc? i have never seen any mohair or cashmere or anything without sheepswool in it, so i've not had the opportunity to test.
