The loss of the ship 'Northfleet'.
The loss of the ship 'Northfleet'.
by Northfleet Ship
Edition: Paperback
Price: £10.57

5.0 out of 5 stars Lots of information, 8 July 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This is a transcript of information given out at the time. Useful to give a real feel of how these things were dealt with and what happened. Less useful if you are looking for information about a specific person. No index of any sort. I thought this was a bit expensive as you can actually download the text but nice to have it bound and neatly presented.

3.0 out of 5 stars Nothing new, 16 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I was hoping for a new take on knitted home furnishings but this was pretty much standard fare. I was irritated that the author insists that only by following her own method of knitting can one obtain the desired result and yet the instructions for this method of knitting were poorly explained and hard to follow. A pretty book to leave on the coffee table but not very inspirational.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not inspiring, 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I found this a bit same old, same old. No exciting transformations or original ideas for using flea market finds but a pleasant enough read and I did find one idea I liked, using an old glass fronted china cabinet as a shoe store. I shall probably copy that one.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed in the projects, 14 April 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I thought this would be a practcal book about recycling but was disappointed in the content. Great for someone who wants to make dressing up clothes and dramatic one offs but the items made are not really very useful ot practical. A pretty book to read though.
