Has anyone out there done quilting and recommend a good book for me to get - there seem to be so many available and do not want to waste money on a book that is not suitable for a beginner.

I'd like to grow some vegetables and salad plants - only problem is, I don't have a garden! But I have a reasonable southwest facing balcony. Any suggestions as to what I could grow in pots or planters and any tips?

My Camelia which has been carted from house to house and country to country is looking very sad - the buds have all gone brown and the leaves have brown bits at the edges - any clues as really do not want to loose it.

I'm looking to buy or have made a small garden gate to replace the present one, which is falling apart and pretty rotten. I don't think its a standard width (about 1metre 15cm wide x 1m 20cm high). I'd like to replace it with another wooden one, preferably hardwood and varnished. Any ideas where I might buy one or someone who can make one to fit? Preferably east side of Amsterdam.

We have a load of furniture that needs bringing over from UK. Not a full housefull, mainly beds and bedroom furniture. Can anyone recommend a good, not too expensive removal firm? I suppose it would all go in a big Transit type van.

Sounds silly I know but I've been hunting for a "two handed" oven glove! The old faithfull I brought with me is looking pretty sad and so far I've only seen single gloves!

We have been thinking about doing a house swop this year for 2 or 3 weeks. Has anyone done this and if so what are the pros and cons? What should we look out for and are there any extra costs involved?

We have a vine in our garden. Should we cut it back now, or wait for the weather to warm up?
