On another note...have you ever seen a white deer?

she is actually an albino...and apparently quite rare.

she lives across the street from my home, in the woods.


all her offspring are totaly normal in color. She is a bit crazy, or brave...she just stares at me and waits for me to go back in the house so she can continue eating her way through my garden.

I would love to learn about piping (it's so hard for me!) and how to find great fabrics that aren't super super expensive. I'm SO EXCITED for your topic!!

I am excited to read this series. I know some basics but I give up trying to get fabric around wood chair arms where they attach to the seat and back. I've done several chairs and they look pretty bad.

Insideways, piping is coming. Kerry, I don't know how to do the arms...guess we'll learn together!

Hi Linda, I'm interested in Arms too. I was thinking I need one of those large needles that are arc shaped to do the seam underneath. Also is there a trick to nail heads? I bend 5 or 6 for every one that I successfully tap in.

Hi Nicole, I have the same nail head problem...a quick googling, and they all say to use a rubber mallet instead of hammer? My gut says (I have not tried it yet) to use a very small drill bit and pre-drill. This is not tested, so it's just a thought.

Loved your upholstry challenge. I do have one tip for you and other's when it comes to cutting foam. I worked doing boat cushions for years and we used a simple electric carving knife (the kind you would use for carving turkey) It slices foam like butter and you get a nice smooth edge. : )
