Redwork Winter Twitterings
Redwork Winter Twitterings
by Pearl Louise Krush
Edition: Paperback

5.0 out of 5 stars Winter Twitterings in Redwork, 17 Aug 2012

I am not a needlework person but I found this book enchanting. These are slightly quirky designs based on winter/christmas US-type projects and there are very detailed instructions, with appropriate skills level, for each one.

This is a beautiful book. I am a newcomer to the art of needlecraft and some of the designs are small enough for me to have a go. There are plenty of instructions ranging from simple embroidery stitches to sizing the design, including guides on techniques and materials needed.

200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws and Afghans: Crochet Squares to Mix-and-Match
200 Crochet Blocks for Blankets, Throws and Afghans: Crochet Squares to Mix-and-Match
by Jan Eaton
Edition: Paperback
Price: £9.09

5.0 out of 5 stars 200 crochet blocks for blankets, throws & afghans, 26 April 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a fantastic book. I am reasonably experienced with crochet granny squares and doilies but this book opened my eyes as to what could be achieved using only the basic stitches. There are good instructions with clear diagrams for all the techniques, and there are over 200 squares - in colour - with example pictures and patterns of worked blankets and afghans. This book is suitable for beginners and more experienced crafters alike, and I am just itching to begin something. It is a beautiful book, and I am really glad I bought it.

4.0 out of 5 stars Boning up on Standard Grade Music, 13 Jan 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I wanted to see how many different types of music I could identify, and perhaps have a go at some practical stuff as well. This book, together with the 'Learn Listening Online' website was extremely interesting, informative, and I can thoroughly recommend it to anyone who would like to learn basic music skills.

I really like Scotland the What, and have seen them live. As an exiled Englishwoman I felt that this DVD didn't do them justice, although my Scottish husband found it hilarious.

Most enjoyable. As a (novice) member of a choral society I am interested to find out how the hours of intensive practice should turn out. Excellent listening.

4.0 out of 5 stars Photoshop Elements 8 Classroom in a Book, 23 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I liked this book very much. It was very easy to read and understand, and although I can find my way round using most Microsoft applications I had no previous experience of photo manipulation.

Each chapter is laid out in plain English and is aimed at the absolute beginner. The included CD has material to use for given exercises, and these are not difficult. For example, when a particular key-press is required the reader is told whereabouts the key is, and also shown on a diagram.

The ONLY fault (nitpicking) I found was that (for some time) I did not discover how to clear the screen between exercises.

I can recommend this book for both the experienced and faint-hearted photographer.

This review is from: Lauridsen - Lux aeterna (Audio CD)
Clear notation. Music itself a tad difficult to sing, but very beautiful. Can recommend for choirs and choristers.
