Lalla Ward's Countryside Embroidery Book
Lalla Ward's Countryside Embroidery Book
by Lalla Ward
Edition: Hardcover

5.0 out of 5 stars A fabulous book that every stitcher ought to have in their collection, 4 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
When I read through this book, I felt the joy experienced as a child, when receiving a much wanted Christmas gift!

Lalla guides you through 12 projects of British countryside themes, featuring birds and other wildlife for each month of the year - these are shown in full size colour photos. In addition, there are detailed full size outlines that you could scan and reduce/enlarge, in readiness for transferring to a fabric of your choosing. The author describes her method and experiences of stitching each of the projects. There are also detailed instructions for completing numerous embroidery stitches.

I have many quality embroidery books in my collection. My husband says that I have amassed too many crafting books and need to destash. OK, this may be true, but I will not part with this fabulous book.

This book is inspirational, yet it does not feel unachievable. If you are hoping to branch out from buying complete embroidery kits, this is ideal. I am looking forward to getting started!


Lily and Brown Metal Dustpan and Brush
Lily and Brown Metal Dustpan and Brush
Price: £8.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Never buy a plastic dustpan set again ..., 14 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Forget plastic dustpan sets that fracture so easily, pay just a little more and use a set that is superior and longer lasting - this set offers value for money.

The brush is just the right firmness, density and texture - it cleans up soot and ash particles around our log-burner well, as you would expect from a brush.

The BIGGEST SELLING POINT is the METAL DUSTPAN, it is superior by far - it is sturdy and lies perfectly flat so that there are NO DUST TRAILS where dust goes underneath, unlike its inferior plastic cousins.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great movie available FREE elsewhere, 14 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Beneath Hill 60 (Amazon Video)
My husband loved this movie that he watched via Amazon Prime (for a fee). However, he was disappointed to discover that it is FREE to watch this internet flick *ahem* elsewhere.

Well produced, awesome special effects, historical facts OK. Although dedicated to Australian brothers in arms, more respect ought to have been paid to the UK miners of England and Wales.

1.0 out of 5 stars Be warned..., 29 Nov. 2014
Having purchased this book as a gift for my husband, he could have justifiably cited it as grounds for divorce ... 'cruelty' and 'unreasonable behaviour'.

This is my two year old grandson's favourite toy - he simply will not go anywhere without it.


ELECTRONIC BUG WASP INSECT FLY MOSQUITO ZAPPER SWAT SWATTER
ELECTRONIC BUG WASP INSECT FLY MOSQUITO ZAPPER SWAT SWATTER
Offered by R & S Supplies Ltd
Price: £3.39

5.0 out of 5 stars Effective, entertaining and great exercise! Does not kill wasps ..., 7 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Zap! Kerpow! This is a great gadget although it can be tricky actually hitting the flies - but half the fun is trying. The voltage is not high enough to kill wasps, all it does is stun them and then you need to find another way to finish them off. I'm a bit slower than I was in my youth but it serves a dual purpose as a keep fit device and so is proving to be great value for money.


Pest-Stop Sure-Set Plastic Mouse Trap (2 Pk)
Pest-Stop Sure-Set Plastic Mouse Trap (2 Pk)
Price: £4.49

5.0 out of 5 stars Speedy Gonzales morto, 7 Nov. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Speedy Gonzales, the fastest Mouse In All Of Mexico (Lincolnshire) is now buried in the garden with his oversized yellow sombrero to mark the spot. The "Ándele! Ándele! Arriba! Arriba! Epa! Epa! Epa! Yeehaw!" cries of any slower mice will be futile. Slowpoke Rodriguez and his ilk do not stand a chance ...

Oh, and Speedy virtually threw himself on the mousetrap - and, no, the mother-in-law is not about to visit.

Speedy is morto. Yeehaw! :)

PS Don't bother buying a cat, it's a no brainer, get a pack of these cheap-as-tortilla-chips mousetraps. ;)

3.0 out of 5 stars Attractive room divider | useless fly screen, 1 July 2014
I have bought this in the past - it is really sturdy and attractive enough if you want a room divider but DOES NOT prevent flies!

2.0 out of 5 stars Awful storyline and acting but great special effects, 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Gravity (Amazon Video)
I've given this film an extra star as its special effects were great. However, it's no wonder it went to DVD so quickly ... In other words, don't waste your life or money watching this movie.

I couldn't empathise with the characters. George Clooney with his usual monotone voice whatever the scenario. Sandra Bullock, well I was really hoping her character would be killed off not long after the opening scenes. I don't want to be accused of spoiling the 'story' - watch it if you don't mind wasting a few hours of your life for awful acting and dialogue ... yawn!

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent value!, 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
My 18 month old grandson loved his Puppy Pal Scout. The puppy is programmable (by an adult!) to say the child's name. I'm sure it will provide a lot of entertainment and cuddles.

All in all, this toy provides excellent value for money!
