Really original and great ideas for crochet. Each pattern is charted as well as written so can be followed regardless of language issues (written in French). Wonderful photography encourage creativity as ideas can be expanded to produce individual pieces of work. Great buy.

This review is from: Mynd (Audio CD)
I watched this duo perform during Broadstairs folk week and was carried away by the beautiful and haunting pieces played. Very musical and meaningful, full of memory, history, love and loss, the music and vocals just carry the listener away where time seems to melt away. Wonderful and unique.

5.0 out of 5 stars Thoughtful, 6 Mar 2014

I love to read this author's work as she makes me think. Sometimes it can get uncomfortable, the implications of being a fully concious person mean many issues have to be addressed. Mindful treatment of all life coupled with care and thoughtfulness in all areas of everyday living can and is very difficult to achieve, but Emma doesn't compromise. I like that honesty and I just hope that issues raised within this book can and will be discussed among a vast number of people and institutions including our education system.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, 21 Mar 2013

This review is from: A First Book of Nature (Hardcover)
This beautiful book is an absolute treasure filled with wonderful illustrations, prose and suggestions for activities throughout the year. Each season is explored looking at nature in a simple yet informative way. The book is written in a style that invokes a simplicity which sees nature through the wonder of childhood. It reminds me of Buddhist mindfulness and I really enjoy reading and looking at this book with my youngest daughter. I am sure that this book will be a favourite for many years to come and ultimately passed on through many generations, just as all beautiful books are.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bringing the sacred into everyday life, 24 Aug 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This wonderful blessing and prayer book has become like an Anam Cara (Soul friend) through continued use over the years as it has helped me to tune both into myself and the unity of all in nature. The book provides evening and morning prayers, blessings and questions for each day divided into the four Celtic seasons of the year. There are futher helpful sections on meditation techniques and suggestions and extra prayers and blessings for specific needs or rites of passage throughout life. Personally, using this book has created a truly beautiful way of bringing the sacred into my everyday life and enabled me to converse with the still centre of my being.
