My 88yr old mum got me hooked on this and I have to say we are now officially addicted to playing this game.
Passaggio - Einaudi By Lavinia ~ Lavinia Meijer
5.0 out of 5 stars Match played in heaven, 13 Aug 2014
Einaudi can relax anyone but I find this interpretation, on the harp, far softer than the piano versions with a clarity that's hard to beat. I've read reviews that suggests that "Einaudi's music lacks depth and all sounds the same" but maybe those reviewers need to listen to this CD. Yes you can recognise that each piece is Einaudi, just as you would recognise various pieces by Beethoven, Bach, Mozart or Shostakovich, but each piece evokes a different listening experience and mood. Lavinia certainly brings those harp strings to life and I would like to see more piano works treated this way.
Rustic Modern Crochet: 18 Designs Inspired by Natu&hellip by Yumiko Alexander
I'm an avid crocheter and always on the lookout for good wearable designs but boy am I glad I used the Amazon option to "Look Inside" this book. The viewable pattern "Lacy Shoals" looks great but when you start to read it, it makes no sense at all. There are always errors in knitting and crochet patterns but this one is just unclear as to what goes where and how you fix it all together. I crochet to relax and this book looks like it will be hard work trying to figure out what the designer means, especially if all the other patterns are as confusing. Needless to say, I won't be buying this one until the publishers re-write it.
