A Very Foggy Christmas
A Very Foggy Christmas
Price: £0.77

5.0 out of 5 stars Laugh out Loud - Such fun, 26 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A worthy follow up to Foggy's Blog which you should read before this one. He has moved departments in the call centre but still manages to misunderstand everything that is happening at home and work, including his weekend job in a café. Foggy sees only the good in everyone and is put upon by everyone because of this. However, a happy ending might be on the horizon. It really is a very funny book and a perfect holiday read at a bargain price.

5.0 out of 5 stars Very entertaining, 26 Jan 2014

This review is from: Foggy's Blog (Kindle Edition)
It probably helps to enjoy this book more if you have worked in or know how call centres work but even without that background you are unlikely to fail to enjoy the humour. I am probably in real life a bit on the conservative side by nature (not politics) also as an older reader I might have been put off if I had realised the exact content but I am pleased to say that I got past all that and found it hard to put down. As other reviewers have said, Foggy is a character you cannot fail to warm to even though he seems to inhabit a parallel universe to his family and colleagues. Well worth buying. I also bought the next volume 'Foggy's Christmas' which was just as good.

This review is from: DAFA Soft Grip Rotary Cutter 45mm
I would have given five stars but do find the button to open and close the cutter rather stiff. It may be just mine. Apart from that it was an absolute bargain and cuts just as well as my Fiskars though I think replacing the blade is not as straightforward.

These work perfectly in my Janome TXL. Delivery was fast considering came from Hong Kong. Such good value. I don't understand why the Janome charge so much for theirs when they can clearly be made at far less cost.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great value and clear tool, 14 Sep 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was fortunate to get this when it was on offer, I was astonished to find it was half the price of those in the shops and it had to come from the States as well.

The markings are very clear, lines nice and bold. I usually buy Olfa but I would buy this make again if the price was right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Price and Works Well, 17 July 2013

Make sure you practise on some spare material and adjust tensions accordingly before you use your project material. This was an excellent price and came with some good instructions showing other ways of using the foot..


Quick & Easy Quilts for Kids: 12 Kid Friendly Patterns
Quick & Easy Quilts for Kids: 12 Kid Friendly Patterns
by Connie Ewbank
Edition: Paperback
Price: £5.24

5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant Book, 15 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Purchased solely on the reviews of previous purchasers. Clearly written, lovely photos and some great ideas. Ideal for beginners and those with just a very little experience like myself. Would recommend you purchase or measure the exact amounts Connie has stipulated as it will be easier to follow the cutting out instructions. With more experience they could be adapted using materials from your stash; I intend to make one using my rose pattern fabrics with toning plain fabrics.

4.0 out of 5 stars Could do with more information on using the template., 15 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Easy Dresden Tool-1" to 8"
It is a good quality rigid plastic with clearly marked sizing. However there was only a small text to accompany it and I didn't find the instructions clear as it said add on x" for the finished size you want. Surely the whole point of the template is to be able to just cut round it, why would anyone want to bother with adding an extra measurement? Buy it by all means as it does the job but look up on You Tube the best ways to use it, plenty of demos on there.

4.0 out of 5 stars Do the job but expensive, 15 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These are very useful to tame glossy rulers (my Fiskars 12" ruler is particularly slippery) but you would need several packets for multiple rulers. I am not sure why the circles have cut out centres? Some of these stayed within the circle and others came loose so I decided to use all the little centres and dotted them around the ruler. I really think this item is overpriced, it is probably produced for a few pence.

5.0 out of 5 stars A good read - shame Kindle edition so poor, 4 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I am re-reading all the Lillian Beckwith books which I have not read for over 20 years and no longer have in book form. The stories/anecdotes remain humerous and an enjoyable read. However the Kindle edition is littered with errors. Sometimes I thought a word must be Gaelic as it made no sense then worked out it was meant to be a fairly commonplace English word such as "their". Still, it was only 99p so I won't complain too much.
