These patterns work and make impressive blocks. The instructions are clear and would be great for beginners and more experienced quilters alike.


The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking
The Antidote: Happiness for People Who Can't Stand Positive Thinking
Price: £5.70

4.0 out of 5 stars As the title says, 16 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Can't rate as a 5 as I'm not a positive thinker. The proof is that I have made it past the first chapter and kept going. Usually I become so irritated by the "you too can do it" styles of writing that I give up.

5.0 out of 5 stars Good guide, 17 Oct. 2014
Helped us find some real gems. Not only are descriptions good but just knowing when sites are open helps if you are camping out of the main summer season.
The maps do take some getting used to.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great help, 17 Oct. 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Was recommended this by a care worker when I was trying and filing to deal with my mother's early dementia. We were both frustrated by our situation and not communicating effectively. This book explained a lot to me and enabled me to deal with conversations with mum more effectively. Helped us both.

Skagen Women's Gold Tone Mesh Band Watch 358SGGD
Offered by Timepieces Direct
Price: £85.00

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful slim watch, 17 Oct. 2014
Was given this exact same watch about four years ago and was very sad when I cracked the face. it is the sort of watch you can wear with all outfits, dress up or dress down. Have received many compliments about it over the years. I had no hesitation in ordering the exact same one. It is very slim so does not catch on clothes etc.

3.0 out of 5 stars shame about second part, 13 Jan. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found the first half of this book very helpful. It gave explanations for why experiences have had such negative effects on my life.
However, I have got to the part where God suddenly becomes part of the process of repair. I stopped reading!

Kindle Touch, Wi-Fi, 6" E Ink Touch Screen Display

4.0 out of 5 stars wasn't sure if I would like it, 2 Oct. 2012
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
The Kindle touch is proving to be very good. I bought it to take on holiday as an alternative to taking loads of books but am using it more than I thought. The voice on it for reading books aloud; great on the beach when you can't be bothered to keep eyes open, takes a bit of getting used to as it's quite mechanical, but is then a nice option. found I'm reading more while travelling.

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I bought this for my nephew at Christmas, he is 9 and a reluctant reader. He found the illustrations inviting and kept reading bits to people. the book went round the whole family during the day, everyone dipped into it and enjoyed. A definate success.
