5.0 out of 5 stars Ahh, a lovely book, 19 Nov. 2008
This review is from: The Christmas Book (Hardcover)
What a lovely book. If you want something to really get you into the mood for christmas, this will do it. It presents christmas craft ideas in a simple and inspiring way, and really gives a lovely homely, simple christmas feel.
The crafts are simple yet inspiringly easy, and it encouraged me to dust off the sewing machine and give it a go. So far I've made the fireplace garland, walnut bread and leaf wreath - all of which were simple and stress free. The items I made actually looked like the pictures too. Other items I intend to make are the gooey brownies, raspberry gin, stockings and stocking garland and home made christmas cards and wrapping paper.
True there are some duff ideas, such as potting a christmas tree, but this book is so big it's not really a problem as there are plenty of other decent ideas to make up for it. And yes, some of the ideas are pretty simple, but I hadn't thought of them before and they only added to my enthusiasm for the simplicity.
Beautiful, I can see I will be referring to this book many times over the next few years.
