Laundry starch works, if you live in an area with lots of critters, you might want to put a dash of fabric softener in with the starch (bugs dont' like it)

If she likes those slippers which are comfy, maybe her feet have been bothering her, you could get her some good foot products from Avon or from Bath and Beauty, like the pumice cream and foot soother stuff. you could make her a pot to put the stuff into.

What a great idea to do a heart or some kind of shape! I would use a material that doesn't fray and maybe hem it before to make double sure.

Get some cedar balls or some cedar ships (like the kind for hamster cages) and put it in a bowl in the window, spiders hate the smell of cedar! Replace it once in awhile, it should be enough to repel anyone from making a home in your window. (they also hate the smell of geraniums)
Moth balls are really effective but of course they have a strong smell.

I think a darker line above the pupils to add depth and hint at your eyelids and a dot of white removed from the pupils to reflect the light would be good. That being said, your porportions are right on and your strokes are good and fluid. The hair and the left side of the neck are especially well done. Nice job.

That's great, my grandmother clips coupons and mails them to me, every week I get a big envelope of them, and she's filthy rich! Roll Eyes Drives me crazy.

That's great and funny too! I wouldn't mind having some haemoglobins (I have Vonwildebrands hemophilia, I might need those. Cheesy)

There are fire restardant sprays on the market. I can't think of a name brand but your local craft store should be able to find it for you.

You can stuff some batting in it then use an iron on patch, or sew soem material on with a hook needle, I would clip the burnt areas off though, so it doesn't smell. I'd also put a mattress pad over it.
Dont' forget to turn the iron off after you're done. Cheesy  Seriously I'm really glad nothing more was burnt! My house burned down a few years ago and it's an awful thing to go through. Take care!
