About the Author

Pip Lincolne grew up in a DIY family. Her dad sewed her lovely dresses; her mum made her orange sorbet; her brother fashioned little houses for her dolls; her sister drew and her nanna knitted, sewed, baked ... you name it! Raised on such handmade fare, there was never any doubt that a crafty life lay ahead. Pip lives above her popular craft store Meet Me at Mike s, in Melbourne s Fitzroy, with her lovely family. Make Hey While the Sun Shines is her third book, following on from the success of Meet Me at Mike s and Sew La Tea Do.

I was expecting a book filled with crafts to do at home - like Pip's other books. I was really disappointed - it is mainly full of lovely photographs - lacks crafting content!

"interesting, lovely well put together pages, projects lacking anything super exciting" is how I would describe this book. It is quite basic so if you are looking for a start out then this would be great as it does come with a handy pocket at the front full of templates. I personally just found there wasn't anything that jumped out at me and made me rush to make it like other books have

There are a lot of 'craft snobs' out there who think 'simple is not the genuine article' BUT, I like Pip Lincolne's great book as it aims to make craft what it should be - a lot of fun and encouraging to anyone who thinks they can't make things, but tempts them to try in a welcoming way so they can find they CAN make things. There should be more books from Pip Lincolne and there should be more people with Pip's attitude to craft. Go PIP

Pip's inviting and chatty style continues - it grabs you and involves you from the word go. The projects suit everyone from beginners to expert crafters and the photography and design is lovely. I love this book and use it regularly to make gifts for friends. I highly recommend it!

The craft ideas don't measure up to the quality and originality available on craft blogs and through places like Flickr, Etsy, Ravelry etc. And other craft books.

It's a dandy package, pattern pieces and vintage-vibe book/page design/photography and golly-gosh breathlessly-girlish prose style. But it's like that's all trying to distract you from the craft designs.

I doubt I'll buy another in this series. I've been crafting since childhood, more expertly at some crafts than others and I've made nothing from any of these books, and have been exasperated more often than delighted.

If you've never done any craft, you may find these books fresh and new.

I was also hugely disappointed that the author recently asked her blog readers (hardly likely to be an 'unhappy' campers or an unbiased group), to add to the reviews here, as there were some 'unhappy' ones here. Poor form, IMHO. Thus the final choice of one star.

This is my favourite of Pip Lincolne's craft books so far. The projects are pretty, fun and designed to be quick so you have more time to enjoy using your finished objects. There is a splash of summer lifestyle in here too, with recipes and suggestions for books, music and TV/movies. It is a beautifully designed book with photographs that will inspire you to get crafting and enjoy life!

I thought this would be on par with Pip Lincolne's first book, Meet Me at Mikes. But alas, no.
The projects are not as awe inspiring as I had hoped.
As a coffee table book it is well presented and the photography is quirky and fun.
But I didn't find any projects I immediately had to make, or couldn't find similar tutorials in blogland for free.
