Felting Fabulous Flowers
Felting Fabulous Flowers
by Gillian Harris
Edition: Hardcover
Price: £6.99

5.0 out of 5 stars a delightful book, 27 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
What a delightful book, the flowers are very realistic and the photography and instructions are so easy to follow. It is an inspiration and will have you making flowers in no time.

Gillian has a great understanding of how flowers are grown in nature and the way she uses the wool to re-create naturalistic flowers that would be perfect for a wedding corsage!

3.0 out of 5 stars it's a promotion for an on line course, 20 Sep 2014

I thought I was buying a book but this is advertising on line courses. Disappointed! Good basic advice but you have to visit a website to find out more. Feel cheated that I paid for an advert!!

helped enormously - since using these my feet don't ache as much. They stay in place without slipping around, and they can be moved from one shoe to another. I used them on high heels. Prompt delivery and well packaged.

these are very comfortable and warm. I love the pretty flowers and with the solid sole they are perfect for around the house or nipping outside to put out the rubbish!

The Answer Is Simple Oracle Cards
The Answer Is Simple Oracle Cards
by Sonia Choquette
Edition: Cards
Price: £13.99

5.0 out of 5 stars wonderful artwork, uplifting advice, 11 Sep 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
these cards are beautifully illustrated, I really enjoy looking at the artwork before I turn to the definition or meaning in the little book. All the cards appear to be positive and encouraging, and usually spot on for where I am at. For example I was giving the house a good spring clean when these arrived, but I could not resist trying them out - the card that came up was about clearing your home!

I love these cards, and use them often.

5.0 out of 5 stars Wonderfully uplifting, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I missed the first series on TV so bought this to get up to speed and what a delight it is. Not only is it full of wonderful music from the era, but I found I became attached to all the characters in a very short space of time. It is uplifting, loyalty, hard work and friendship prevail, even in an impoverished community.

Quite simply brilliant.


Whirlpool Max Microwave with Steam Function - Green
Whirlpool Max Microwave with Steam Function - Green
Price: £149.99

3.0 out of 5 stars Very neat, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a very good microwave it takes up smaller space in a corner, but however there are compromises, it is a lot taller and I find I cannot put in jugs as it is not as high internally. the workings are stashed underneath the microwave which makes it taller but not any roomier inside. I think if I had been able to actually see this before I bought it I might not have chosen it. It is very expensive for what it is.

Vintage Swimwear Patterns: Historical Patterns and Techniques
Vintage Swimwear Patterns: Historical Patterns and Techniques
by Jill Salen
Edition: Paperback
Price: £16.59

3.0 out of 5 stars A good reference book, 8 April 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It is lovely to look at the examples of vintage items - the photographs are good and there is some interesting information about the item.

Had I picked this up in a bookshop I would most likely not have purchased it, however i ordered it because I thought it would have patterns and construction techniques that would help me to create my own vintage style swimwear.

The patterns are too small - you have to scale them up - that was quite disappointing as I was expecting patterns I could actually use rather than draft myself. Most of them are overlaid as well, and they are very small.

There are only two projects on how to make your own versions, the instructions - the rest do not include instructions nor detailed pictures, some of the patterns only have one front image for you to work out how to do it.

I don't doubt Jill Salen's knowledge and skills, but feel that this did not deliver quite what I was hoping for.
