An Algarve Affair by Janice Russell
An Algarve Affair by Janice Russell
5.0 out of 5 stars An Algarve Rekindled, 5 Feb 2014
Janice Russell's writing made me laugh out loud eight times ( in the best way) and I had only reached page twenty-eight. She creates evocative scenes of life on the edge of a small Algarve fishing village - I can smell the sardines being barbequed outside houses on cobbled lanes, toward the harbour. But most enjoyable, to me, are the vivid characters she creates, their humanity, and the wry unexpected turns their lives take. Can't wait for more.
Material World: The Modern Craft Bible by Perri Lewis

A delightful book which reminded me of crafts I learned years ago and did really badly. Perri's guide is written in warm accessible language with clear illustrations. She, and her guest contributors, have made me my fingers itch to get started again AND given the information I need to enjoy the results!
