5.0 out of 5 stars a very unsusal book, 30 Jan 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Harvest (Kindle Edition)
This is the 1st book I have bought & read on my new Kindle. So that is an experience in itself. I heard about it on the Radio as being shortlisted for the Man Booker Prize last year.
It is the story of the life in a medieval village, from the point of view of an outsider, who has actually lived in the village for 12 years!
I have learnt the meaning of a lot of old English words and ways as the book is written in an old style. I haven't yet finished it. I can't wait to find out the ending.
Great read! highly recommended.

Great little travel book. lots if info on places to go.
The only fault have is the map I am interested in is right on a fold in the book & I cannot see all of it!!
For places to stay, the internet is better.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great dogs!, 24 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I think these dogs are great. I am really looking forward to having a go. I would have liked a Belgian Shepherd! I can always adapt one though.
they are great & can be made as prezzies, I will make some into brooches.& embellishments for bags cards etc.
As they don't need a lot of wool, tapestry wool is ideal which can be sourced cheaply on ebay, or in charity shops.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a wonderful book!, 24 April 2013

I just love the many different ways to create colourful bags.
It is great for using up left over bits of wool, & they make super presents!
Had to invest it large circular needles though!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful fabric!, 12 Dec 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This fabric is really very pretty. The fairies are glittery too!. I am actually using in to line the body of a coat - It will be ideal!
I didn't know when I ordered it, it would be coming from Hong Kong. But it arrived within 5 days, the same time as other Amazon purchases from the UK. I will Definitely use them again!

5.0 out of 5 stars I love this stuff!, 2 Dec 2011
This review is from: Mothers Billet Metal Polish
My husband first bought this for his Truck. I found it & use it on all my household metal. It is excellent for Antique Silver, brass & copper. Better than any other metal polish so don't be put off by the price !!
Easy to use & buffs up to a wonderful shine.
