What is it that would cause the spool of thread on top of my machine to keep jumping around and twisting the thread around the spool holder thing? This is driving me bananas. Thanks.

if the tanks are 4 x 5 x 6 inches, and all those fish grow to a minimum of 3/4 inch then i dont see how that small environment is good. they need heaters. the only fish that dont are coldwater and bettas that have a constant room temp.
i keep fish and it is not easy. i spend money and so much of my time trying to give them a nice captive home, and something that small saddens me. (not to mention you could get a small tank 5/10 gallons for a couple bucks more at some stores)
and there shouldnt be mroe that one fish in something taht small. i keep my bettas in aquariums that are atleast 5 times as large.
i love fish lots.

i know this thread is older, but i jsut had to add.
a betta would be fine in this size. however, no other fish would. and those aquababies are even worse. sure, you could stick me in my closet and i could live a long time, but is that right? no. i do think this blender thing is really cool, but you could try having only an aquatic garden. or aquatic snails. sea monkeys (already mentioned). go to an aquarium store and see what 'oddities' they have. remember, we take animals from their homes, so it is our responsibility to recreate their natural environment... and take good care of them...
but yeah, i like the idea, and really like the fake fish one.

thanks for the ideas.
i tried again last night and im certain that it is because my tables arent stable enough. so for the time being im going to put up with it until i find something better. i do like the idea of an old door... or anything lying around. im going to go shopping at grandparents houses and such.
i was thinking maybe small shelves or a dresser on either ends with the door screwed on top. so we'll have to see.  Smiley

76  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing Machines: Discussion and Questions / my sewing machine... on: September 21, 2004 09:26:31 AM
... just whips all around the table i have it on. this is my first portable machine. my other is a 1970s viking inside a desk. so it jsts freaks me out as i sew cuz the tables all shaking, and the machine is rattling and flying around. it even has rubber feet... i also think i need a more stable desk, instead of 4 legs and a top.
so what is the best set up for these machines?

im searching for a sewing machine of my own... and i looked at previous posts on this sites and others. im finding good advice on personal purchases, however there are some terms i dont understand. like im looking at one that says "  Converts from flat-bed to free-arm" is there a sewing machine dictionary or something?
78  SEWING IN GENERAL / Sewing in General: Discussion and Questions / beginning and ending stitches help on: August 13, 2004 09:23:33 PM
when i start a stitch and end a stitch i sew reverse a few spots. to make sure it holds. is that what everyone else does? if i do applique or stitch details on projects the big double and triple stitches look terrible. im wondering if there is some magical way to make the thread stay put for ever...
i hope i am making some sense.
