Sew Pretty Homestyle: Over 35 Irresistible Project&hellip by Tone Finnanger
I am pretty addicted to Tonne's books, and this was no let down. It is full to the brim with gorgeous and homely items with themes and ideas that can all be intermingled. Most rooms of the house are given a chapter but it just serves as a structure for the book rather than an instruction - I have made a number of things as gifts, as well as things for my own home.

The rubber seal around the 'plunger' means there are no grains that escape to the finished drink, and the handy flip lid allows you to pour milk and sugar in with ease.

The reason for my purchase was however more practical - I was looking for a book that would hold my hand and take me to a sligthly higher skill level of cake decorating. I have done amateur Birthday and Anniversary cakes for friends and family, and wanted to take the next step - there are some useful pages at the front of the book, but it VERY QUICKLY steps up a pace and is swiftly into creations that is way beyond the average home-baker. Obviously, this is just an opinion, and if you're looking for a real challenege then this could be for you - but… Read more
