Great job!

Thanks for the link to the cool site. I just moved into a new apartment, without any window treatments. That website will definitely come in handy.

Yes thats what I mean. But there are types of glues that are normally using in scrapbooking such as metal glues, glue dots, special tape adhesives for vellum etc. I suggest browing online scrapbooking stores and other online stores that are for the type of crafting supplies you want to carry.

Ribbon is also used a lot in scrapbooking along with buttons and bottlecaps. Embossing powders are also used quite a bit in scrapbooking and card making.

I did a two page 12x12 layout of pics I took last spring of my farm.

The left page: ( I have no idea why the main photo looks crooked...its not in person?!)




Right page





Together: (this is blurry, but you get the idea)



My boyfriend Kevin at Balsam Lake, Ontario, last June. (for details for what I did to the page see my blog in my signature)




My dog, Troy. I did this layout late last summer.





Any comments or suggestions?

Anyway... creative idea though.
8  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / Re: Serger Seams on: November 30, 2006 05:26:31 AM
I have this exact serger. I love it and have never had any problems with it. Did you try to rethread it? If so there is  a particular order it must be threaded in. Is the blade cutting at all?

After you sew the fabric right sides together is it attached at all? If they are, but you can pull them apart and see the threads from the right side it really sounds like a tension issue, especially with the two needle threads.  Set all the tension dials to 3. serge some. Adjust each dial individually just a bit and serge some more. Most of the time my needle tensions are set at about 3 and my upper and lower loopers are at about 4/5 or 5/6 respectively. Also open up your covers and have a look. Make sure the red lever before the throat plate is set to 'S' for serging and not to 'R'for rolled hems.

If you cant figure it out take some pics of it and Ill try to help you. Open up the covers and take a pic from the front, the right side. Please make sure that they are clear so I can see what you have things set at.   email me at epona04@msn.com   If you want I can even take pics of my machine and how I have it set up. I cant do this until tonight when I get home from the lab.

Also the manual sucks for this machine. I highly reccommend Singers Sewing with a Serger.

9  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / Re: Help on sewing with knit jersey fabric... on: November 09, 2006 06:10:00 AM
With jersey you will need to use a narrow zig zag stitch. This will probably prevent the 'buckling' you're refering to... or the 'gathered'  or wavy look that happens when you try to sew some jerseys with a straight stitch.  And as mentioned before use a ball point needle.

Another Farm Girl (yes, with capitals) checking in. It looks good! I wish other tractor companies would make fabric. I'm sure my dad would love a New Holland or Massey Ferguson shirt.   Smiley   I can't use John Deere because he doesnt have any. (he thinks they're way over priced for what you get Tongue)
