I did make nice one thing from this book - the knitted teacosy for my grandma. There is also a cupcake recipe which seemed good, but I already have the Hummingbird Bakery Cookbook for all my baking needs!
But the other projects are either
1. A nice idea, but dont really warrant a 'how-to' - patchwork quilt? sew some square patches together. decorate your clothes with buttons? sew some buttons on (ditto patches). paint something on a t-shirt with fabric paint. bored of flowerpots? plant your flowers in an old watering can. and so on...
2. Just a bit awful - knitted coat-hangers. 'for valentines day find a heart shaped pebble and paint I Love You on it'. tin-can lanterns - clean a tin can, punch some holes in, insert candle. an embroidered 'keep out' door sign for your teenager?! and a truly horrendous garden chair made from denim.
Sorry again but I hope that helps some people save their money!

I am not so in love with this book as other reviewers. I found the pictures dull, flat and sometimes deceptive. They do not always relate to the content. Read morePublished on 17 Jan. 2010 by Katharine Kirby

very lovely book, with feel appeal, presented beautifully with nice projects... But would have to agree with the review that said not 'gorgeous'. Read morePublished on 26 Dec. 2009 by Mrs. B. Handford
I bought this because of the colour, layout and inspiration more than the individual projects. I love the jam recipe- it truly is foolproof! Read morePublished on 10 Nov. 2009 by greentrianglegirl
