Look what I got!

That's right. It's a NEW craft book. The Happy Hooker. I was in my local bookstore buying a birthday present for my dad (after I bought him a, to be honest, cheap and nasty, card and he responded with "Oooh, a bought card" (subtext "Lindsay has spent some money on me rather than making a card") I don't worry about making gifts, which I know would be unappreciated), when I saw The Happy Hooker and snapped it up.

I'm really impressed with it. All the instructions are really clear, and it's fixed a few errors I was making after self-teaching myself. The patterns are really good too and although I haven't made anything from it yet, I'm definately planning too!

On another note, I think I've finally got my template sorted out now, but if there are any problems could you leave a note in the comments section?

Yeah, I love new books. I should do what you do and post a photo of all the other new books I just bought. I was very naughty!

I've decided it's not worth the effort to make gifts for people who don't appreciate them. Not only is it a waste of time, but it's pretty upsetting when they don't value what you've done.
