4.0 out of 5 stars Good patterns, March 1 2014

There are lots of simplistic patterns in this book that can be put to many uses. I've stitched a few of the patterns from here and have been quite happy with the results.

2.0 out of 5 stars Wrong Miyazaki, March 1 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
If you're looking for Hayao Miyazaki's creatively drawn beauty, you will find in here. However, if you're hoping for a heart tugging, character loving, watch it to the very end and then rewatch some day down the road kind of movie, you will be very disappointed.

This story was lethargically drawn out, we put it on slow forward to get past the dullest of scenes and still it did not impress. Characters were empty and there was no real connection to any of it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Just not for me, March 1 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
Clearly I am lacking in the skills of crochet as even with these step by step configurations for the cute robots, I was left in tangles and knots. The creativity is here in this book, and had I been able to be more 'smooth' with the skills I could have rated higher, but alas, it was not so.

Very Helpful. There were many eye opening aspects that I hadn't put into consideration when planning our herd. There were more technical areas addressed that wouldn't be top of my mind while speaking to our local cattle ranchers for their expertise.

2.0 out of 5 stars Awkward, March 1 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Farming Simulator (Video Game)
Expected to be a fun 'pretend your a farmer' kind of game I was quickly disappointed to find out even the basic controls of handling the tractor were awkward and cumbersome. There is no choice of 'let me just raise computer generated cows and be done with it' in this Simulator. You are required to go through all the steps of sowing, growing, harvesting, selling....etc.

Perhaps there's a "Cattle Ranching" or "Virtual 4H'er" game out there that would be more fun. As for this game, its in the bottom of the drawer where sad games go to die.

2.0 out of 5 stars *ugh*, March 1 2014

Clearly the seasons were drawn out too long. By the time season 5 comes around the characters have lost all face, are no longer amusing, are harsh and even more heartless then they were in the first 4 seasons. This 6th Season is just the slamming of the trash bin lid.

Red Skies (The Tales of the Scavenger's Daughters)
Red Skies (The Tales of the Scavenger's Daughters)
Price: CDN$ 5.54

5.0 out of 5 stars Thin Red Lines, March 1 2014
There is a Chinese proverb that goes: "An invisible Red Thread connects those who are destined to meet. Regardless of time, place or circumstance. The Thread my stretch or tangle but will never break."

This sums up all that happens within the pages of this moving story. My heart bruises when I read each of Kay Bratt's novels, the contrast between the loving hearts and sadness woven into each of the (female) characters she introduces you to connect with.
If you have enjoyed reading the rest of the Scavenger's Daughters series - Red Skies, focusing on the eldest Zhung flower, w/o the whirl wind of younger sisters - this book will not disappoint.

Products are always fantastic both in potency & scent. Remember to make the additional purchase of an oils holder (case) though as they do not come with one automatically.

This cd gives you both the Demo (with the clarinet included) & the Play Along (where the clarinet sound has been removed so that the musician can play themselves).

The music score is wonderful & the cd is instrumental!

A great buy for those who like to play melodic rock.

2.0 out of 5 stars So disappointed :S, May 18 2013
Terrible!!! While the score itself is all fine & dandy - the accompaniment cd leaves LOTS to be desired. Its all done in xylophone so its not really "accompanying" its just plunking out the score the musician is to follow. It certainly wouldn't do for a performance unless you wanted to sound like you had a childs toy piano tinkering in the back ground.

Unimpressed.
