3.0 out of 5 stars My kind of home, 21 Nov 2012

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Kirstie's Vintage Home (Hardcover)
I have been watching Kirstie Allsopp's shows for a while and have been taken along by her enthusiasm for every thing hand made. I used to make a lot of of clothes both sewn and knitted and soft furnishings, but got out of the habit. Gradually I've got back to knitting and have wanted to do more to recycle stuff in my home. This book (of a TV series) is full of useful projects that anyone who can thread a needle or use a paint brush can do themselves. The instructions are clear and simple to follow, although in some cases they may set off an idea in the reader which goes at a tangent to the project actually described. About 50% of the projects are relevant to me and my home and about half of the rest have given me ideas. As well as the projects there is a wealth of information about where to source materials and recycled objects and how to use and display them and make your own vintage home. The book is well laid out and has its own vintage feel. This book will help anyone who has the time and inclination to make home made changes in their own home.

You've written a rave review, yet only awarded 3 stars. That doesn't make any sense.
