I am used to using Simplicity patterns so there were no problems in following the instructions. Although not a size 16 I chose a size up as I wanted a loose fit. Apart from being too long (or me being too short!) it turned out very well.

I do a lot of patchwork and always seem to be running out of thread so this set of threads seemed just the job. I hesitated to order at first because other reviewers were not happy about the range of colours and some found the thread kept breaking. As soon as the box arrived I tested it out on my machine and had no problem at all, even doing embroidery stitches.
The choice of colours interesting, lots of blues which Is what I like and also useful dark ones. It didn't matter that black and white were not included as I always have large reels of them anyway. The thread has a nice feel when used for hand stitching. The thread is thinner than brand names but in spite of that I think this is excellent value for money.

Bought for a granddaughter who is visiting soon. The smell of ink was a bit strong but after a wash it seems fine. Definitely wouldn't use it before washing.

Quilting with a Difference (Craftworld series)
by Nikki Tinkler
Edition: Paperback

4.0 out of 5 stars An interesting concept, 17 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is an interesting book about quilting with embroidery stitches. Experienced quilters will probably fell there is nothing new here but for those who haven't tried using embroidery stitched the book is really useful as the author has made lots of experiments and anyone using the ideas will know they work!

This a family history story with a difference. The author follows the journey his inherited artefacts made. Parts of the story were extremely moving, particularly the situation for Jews in Austria in 1930s/40s.

5.0 out of 5 stars Useful reverse design, 17 July 2014

Bought for a grandson's visit. The reverse has a more "grown up" stripe design so should be suitable when he is older.

This review is from: The Thread (Kindle Edition)
This is the first book I have read by this author and will not be the last. It is very well written and by means of telling a story about a particular family and their friends one learns much about the history of Thessalonika during the 20th century.

Price: £1.95

3.0 out of 5 stars A little disappointing, 6 Dec. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I chose to read this because I love Cornwall and am interested in environmental issues but I found this book irritating! The storyline was spoilt by far too many lengthy discussions between the characters about political views and the sex scenes were unnecessarily explicit and for me didn't enhance the story. The essence of Cornwall was well captured and it was easy to picture the area and get a sense of the character of the place. I am not sure if I want to read more by this author but will probably give it a go as it is not fair to judge on just one book.

4.0 out of 5 stars Very sticky!, 16 Oct. 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I used this on tube to prevent vine weevil adults. So far all of seems well. Being weak in the hands I found it hard woke to squeeze the stuff round the rim. It is very sticky so beware accidentally grabbing pots which have been treated, I found it took ages to get off the hands.

This review is from: The Last Runaway (Kindle Edition)
This book appealed because it is about a quilter who emigrates to America. The quilting theme runs throughout the story of Honor who gets involved with the slave situation. I felt it wasn't as good as Girl with a Pearl Earring but still very enjoyable and an easy way to learn history!
