31  How to sew with difficult fabrics? in Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions by diannab on: August 07, 2006 02:11:38 PM
I just started sewing and love it love it love it!!!  My daughter loves those fuzzy chenille like pillows that are all fuzzy and soft and cushie Smiley I don't want to pay 20 dollars for a 8 inch square pillow. So I decided to buy the fabric! :::dundudun:: And the hell begins. I decided to cut the pillow out.  Lil' fuzzies were flying everywhere! It lost so many fuzzies that I swear it now has bald spots......... LOL And then I try to sew it together... (pink fuzzies still flying everywhere).... And my machine is having a very difficult go at it...... I think maybe now I know why they charge 20 dollars for it LMAO... Anyone else had this problem? Any suggestions on a better experience with this fabric next time?

33  Someone help me plan my front yard please!!!! in Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions by diannab on: August 05, 2006 12:03:27 PM
 Grin So here goes, I have a wonderful house with lots of 'yardage' Cheesy I am a sewer too Smiley.  My front yard is pretty plain at this point it has a bed under the kitchen windows, which is full of holly bushes. (I am okay with that) And then I have a bed under my large living room window, this bed will be empty as soon as I move the Holly bush (unless anyone thinks it should stay) I have a black thumb,but am trying to learn how to get a green one. Cheesy We are on a corner lot located in a downtown area with a lot of traffic and I want it to look stunning.  Any suggestions? The size is about 30 x 60 and empty except for a large oak tree on the right end kinda in the middle of that end Smiley Sorry details are so confusing but I couldn't get my pics to upload.  Any suggestions would be greatly appreciate. Also, I am very crafty, I just lack the originality part here lately for some reason................ Thanks again!!!!


  This is near my kitchen windows.... and my bare sidewalks....



This is the flower bed that I was speaking of demolishing to build a tranquility pond.... Whaddya think?


This is my front door and my large living room window Cheesy I would like to do something with both but I am not sure what.......

OKAY............... SO all suggestions are greatly appreciated!!!!
