Summary

Carsfold has recently opened its new theatre and the Town’s Women’s Guild is to present its first live performances – the pantomime ‘Jack and the Beanstalk’ – over Christmas.

 
DI Harry Falconer has managed to duck two days spent over the festive season in the Carmichael household by pleading other commitments, but treating the whole family, himself included, to tickets to the first performance, on Boxing Day.

 
But he seems to be able to do nothing straight forward, and when tragedy strikes in the very first Act, he is catapulted back into his professional role with a vengeance: and on a Bank Holiday, too.

    Did you think embroidery was complicated, confined to flowers and a major undertaking? This cute and clever book will dispel those myths and inspire you to take up a needle and thread even if it's for the first time ever.
     
    Fiona Goble an established craft author and owner of a textile business. The inspiration for this book came from her blog stitchaday, for which she set herself the task of producing a simple embroidery for every day of the year.
     
    The book showcases 35 simple embroidery motifs that can be stitched onto any number of textile objects. Each colourful, striking motif is shown on a specific object for inspiration, whether a towel, skirt, bag, gift card or lampshade. The projects are split into fun chapters, themed according to their uses: Eat, Sleep, Relax, Work, Play, Dress, Bath, Celebrate. and the instructions are as clear and simple as the motifs themselves.
     
    The items are often embellished with buttons and contrasting fabric trims and for each motif there is also a 'Stitch it!' star with suggestions for further uses of the motif, all of which gives the reader a wealth of inspiration for any project they wish to take on board.
     
    With an introduction to all the different stitches used in the book and a few bonus patterns should you wish to make your own pillowcase, apron or doorstop, this is a gorgeous book that will help you brighten your home or the faces of friends and family.
