I am an intermediate / Advanced crochetter. I love the designs in this book. My first project will be the cover project. I find that most patterns I crochet have errors in them, but it is nice to know the corrections are posted on the author's site. Looking forward to these projects.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful, lacy, feminine inspirational pattern book., December 23, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I am an avid crochetter and prefer lacy feminine patterns when crochetting shawls, ponchos, etc. I love the patterns in this book. Love the lacy shrugs. I agree with the reviewer who said that many of the patterns in this book are for the slimmer more petite figure. I do not wish to reveal my not-so-ideal shape; however, I do find the lacy and feminine styles inspirational and I do wear lacy shawls, and scarves. I will make most of the designs in this book for myself and my more petite friends. This book to me is worth the money I paid.

Great movie. I do love Clint Eastwood movies. Great acting, great plot, very intriguing, quirky characters. Good entertainment and interesting that it is based on true events.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent, April 8, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
This review is from: Farewell to Manzanar (Paperback)
I just finished reading this book. It is wonderful. It is a personal heartfelt account of the author's experience being relocated, living in and being moved out of the internment camps. This is truly a great read. The author mentions how she felt being gawked at by classmates and how it felt to be treated like a 3rd class citizen by whites. This is such an important book. Everyone should read this book. It has been required reading in many schools, but not in any of the classes I was in. I am so glad I have read this book. Imagine losing everything, being hauled away to an internment camp and then once you are released, you have to find you way again. This is a good perspective on yet another embarrassing chapter in the history of the United States and of the resiliency of a people very much discriminated against.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great enlightening story, March 20, 2014
Verified Purchase(What's this?)
I love this story. Love Billy's descriptions of what he goes through and where he is and his truth about his mortal life. This is a beautiful enlightening read. I have always believed in an after life and a prelife. These books from people who share their experiences are very affirming and have always made me view life in our mortal state very differently.
