1  HOME SWEET HOME / Exterior Decorating / Yard Art / Gardening: Discussion and Questions / It's either me or the squirrel.... on: July 10, 2008 05:13:32 PM
So, I love putting out birdfeeders, but I think I either have a squirrel or a raccoon problem. They have figured out how to open every birdfeeder I have put out. I started buying the mesh bags with the seed bells in them and hanging them on a skinny branch but the birds are having trouble landing on it because the branch makes the bell bounce around.

I am pretty sure it is a squirrel because one of the feeders I pout out was in a box and the corner was chewed off very neatly. I think a raccoon would have done more damage.

Tree and birdhouses



Wooden birdhouse - they have learned how to slide the plastic part up so all the seed falls out

Any suggestions for deterring a pesky squirrel?

Thanks,

Stephanie
2  MISCELLANEOUS TOPICS / Discussion and Questions / Where oh where is the good felt hiding? on: September 28, 2007 05:06:19 PM
Hi,

I have been experimenting making pin cushions and embroidering on felt. However, the only felt I can find in my local craft store and local fabric shop is the cheap polyester blend felt. And it is just not working.

I keep reading from you more experienced felt masters that I need to use felt that is 100%wool, or a wool blend.

Where do I find this magical felt? Does anyone have any good online resources or know of any fabric stores that carry it?

Does anyone know where I can get good quality felt? Not the synthetic stuff like in Michaels, but at least 70% wool?

Thanks,

Stephanie
