2.0 out of 5 stars disappointing, 9 Nov. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
More of a magazine than a book. Having paid best part of £9 I expected better. Some of the decorations featured don't have instructions and only serve to give suggestions for displays, which you regularly find in weekly magazines this time of year. Spend your money on a different book to this!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Some nice ideas, 30 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
There are some nice projects in this book, most are knitted in the round so if you're not used to this method this book may not be for you.

Ive only rated this book as 3 stars as I havent found it particularly inspiring, nice enough but not one of my favourites.

5.0 out of 5 stars A really inspiring book, 30 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Ordered this book on a whim and I'm so glad I did! Its full of really pretty projects using things that most of us have kicking round the house. All the projects look fun to make and not very complicated and would make lovely additions to your home or beautiful gifts to give. Ideas range from empty matchboxes covered in pretty paper to picture frames made out of 'lolly sticks' to glass jars painted on the inside and decorated on the outside. The hardest part will be deciding which to do first!!

Despite being listed as a replacement cable for our laptop the cable is a really loose fit and has dropped out again in the short time Ive spent sitting still typing this review.

3.0 out of 5 stars some nice ideas, 6 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
a wide range of ideas to make,my favourite is the felted tea cosy shown on the cover. The only criticism I have about this book is, that like so many others, you have to enlarge the templates for a lot of the designs. Personally I'd rather pay a bit more for the book and have the templates already at the correct size. For this reason alone I've only given this book a 3 star rating.

4.0 out of 5 stars Lovely, 17 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Knitted Dinosaurs (Paperback)
Ive made 2 of the designs from this book already for a work colleagues grand daughter and theyre very well loved. Plenty of concise instructions and tips and lots of photos. Ive only scored it 4 rather than 5 stars as the photos are bordering on repetetive and arent taken from enough angles to check the placement of limbs, tails and facial features. Otherwise a really good book whose designs would be in high demand from dinosaur fans

5.0 out of 5 stars A lovely book, 17 Mar. 2013

This review is from: Countryside Softies (Paperback)
Couldnt tell you which is my favourite project in this book as theyre all so cute. Really good photography that just enhances its overall appeal. Cant imagine theres anything I wont make in it, I just need a few extra hours each day to do it in!! Different skill levels needed to tackle all the projects but certainly worth the effort.

4.0 out of 5 stars A lovely film, 17 Mar. 2013

This is a fantastically animated film, great for family viewing. I love anything related to Christmas and this film is no exception. Aimed at families with young children it still has a heart warming effect on adults too, and sends a lovely message to all ages.

5.0 out of 5 stars Ageless, family entertainment, 17 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Norman Wisdom was one of my favourites as a kid in the 70s and he still is today. His timing is fantastic and with his mannerisms and talent he can make you laugh out loud one minute and feel sad at his plight the next. With real talent that is missing in so many 'stars' today, Norman Wisdom is by far one of the best of all times.

If you want real talent without the risk of being offended this is for you.


Underwater Dogs
Underwater Dogs
by Seth Casteel
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars Fantastic photographs, 17 Mar. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Underwater Dogs (Hardcover)
This book is outstanding, Ive never come across anything else like it. Fantastic close-up photos capturing each dogs unique look underwater. Some beautiful photos, some bizarre, but all really good one way or the other. Covers quite a wide range of breeds and the book tells you the dogs names which just adds to its overall appeal and charm

An absolute must for any dog lover or for anyone looking for something a bit quirky
