Finer Edge
Finer Edge
by Kristin Omdahl
Edition: Paperback
Price: £14.88

5.0 out of 5 stars A really good book clearly illustrated and explained., 26 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Finer Edge (Paperback)
A really fab book with good clear images, and with good instructions and clear stitching diagrams. I'd have loved it even more if it had been thicker with more edges to work from. A good companion book to go with 'Around the Corner Crochet Borders' by Edie Eckman

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing., 26 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Not as illustrated; these are blue not purple. The image used must have been photo shopped or colour enhanced. Each bat is large and made of clear plastic, the colour from the LEDs doesn't travel far across them and they look absolutely nothing like the image used to sell them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Warm and fluffy, ok in quality., 16 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Marvelously fluffy and warm. It could have been a thicker weave as some of my other flannelette items bought from my clothing catalog were, but it does the job. I suspect it won't last as long though, because of the looser weave. It does shed a lot of fluff presently, but I'm sure it will cease doing so when it has been washed a few times.


50 Ripple Stitches (Annie's Attic: Crochet)
50 Ripple Stitches (Annie's Attic: Crochet)

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing., 16 Jan. 2016
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A disappointing book. Visually illiterate, it contains no visual instructions or designs, only written instructions. This wouldn't be so bad if those verbal directions actually corresponded to the key at the back, but half the stitches mentioned are not listed or described there. Yes, there is a link to a website, but as my computer is at work and my crochet is done at home, this option is useless for me. Some of the photography is hopeless too, with white stitching shot against a white background. This book may be useful for someone familiar with all the stitches used, and doesn't need to look them up, or for a person who doesn't think visually, as most artists and crafts people do. Such a shame as these things would have been easy to address, and the editors should have noticed these problems.

This review is from: Feeler (1996) (Audio CD)
Her finest album, shocking in its honesty and bravery of tackling difficult subjects, but catchy tunes and a fantastic voice to carry you through them.

1.0 out of 5 stars Very disappointing seller, 20 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
These brackets are lovely to look at and beautifully cast, but useless thanks to not having had some of their holes drilled. The illustration was unclear, and more views may have prevented me from buying them assuming that they would have holes at the end. I have contacted the seller, twice, asking how to drill the necessary holes myself, with still no instructions forthcoming. As a result I've spent two evenings and a morning trying to drill holes at the end myself and still haven't worked my way through them. As I've made a start on them I don't think I can now send them back, and the seller hasn't suggested sending them back for replacements which are ready to use. I have just moved house, and have a lot of DIY and decorating still to do, and this is more hastle I could have done without. Lack of attention to detail and poor customer service has marred a potentially beautiful item. I'm pretty unimpressed.

3.0 out of 5 stars Looks good but needs better quality control., 11 Sept. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
It looks lovely but it's difficult to put up because part of one side is slightly squashed, making it only just fit the 3 armed sitter which suspends the lamp shade from the light fitting, and even then only in one of the 3 potential ways it can fit together. This squashing wasn't caused by the delivery company as all the packaging was perfect, so it must have left the manufacturers poorly quality assessed. One of the plastic lenses is also hanging down as it is lacking its little metal clip, so I shall have to reverse the lense so it hangs downwards instead of flopping about. It looks great so it's a shame poor quality control is letting this company down.

Easy to fit once you give up on the screws that came with it, which were way too short for screwing into rawl plugs.
