              'One might have imagined that the British Empire was in danger. The Standard spoke of me as a menace to English letters; and the Morning Post as an example of the sad results to be expected from the over-education of the lower orders...' Jerome K. Jerome When Three Men in a Boat,... a jaunty account of a boating trip down the Thames, was first published in 1889, it became a huge overnight success with the paying public despite the barrage of criticism in the press. It's the knockabout story of three impressionable young clerks, J., George and Harris, who climb aboard a skiff in the company of a fox-terrier called Montmorency. Originally intended to be a travel guide, it somehow turned into an outstanding comic novel and a runaway hit that still has legs. It's never been out of print since. The good-natured jokes and comic set-pieces remain as fresh today as when they were first penned. The gags cover entirely random subjects, including hazardous towropes, the whys and wherefores of late-Victorian suburban life, and the problem of trying to get into a tin of pineapple chunks without an opener. This is a comic gem that brings to life memories of a lost era of innocence and it regularly makes lists of the funniest books of all time.

              Cross Stitch: A Beginner's Step-by-Step Guide to Methods and Techniques

              Cross Stitch: A Beginner's Step-by-Step Guide to Methods and Techniques (Paperback)

              By Gerlings, Charlotte

              Cross stitch is one of the oldest forms of hand embroidery, popular all over the world, and it is little wonder that it remains so. Not only is it easy to learn - cross stitch is usually the first embroidery stitch taught to children - but it's quickly arranged into patterns, pic...tures and letters by following grid charts where each square represents a single stitch. The pleasure in achievement can become quite addictive as the design grows and different colours are added. This book has been prepared with beginners in mind. The essentials of counted cross stitch are set out here with plenty of illustrations to guide you, and a basic range of free-style embroidery stitches has been added in a supplement to the counted thread method. The book also aims to act as a refresher for those who first learned to cross stitch years ago and would like to pick it up again. There are sections on equipment and various threads and fabrics, as well as advice on how to read charts and create your own, including numerous motifs and alphabets for you to use. The terminology used throughout is UK-standard, together with the relevant US terms in square brackets [ ] to make this a practical guide for all readers. The art of cross stitch dates back at least as far as the 6th or 7th century CE when it was used to decorate household linens with floral or geometric patterns, worked simply in black or red thread. Folk costumes, especially from northern and eastern Europe, are often decorated with similar traditional designs; medieval Assisi work and Tudor blackwork were beautiful, intricate developments of the same technique. Later came the familiar multicoloured sampler, which served several purposes: to record patterns or motifs in the absence of pattern books; to teach children how to stitch; and finally to demonstrate a young woman's prowess with the needle. Nowadays, we happily incorporate cross stitch designs into many items, from greetings cards to buttons, bookmarks, pot covers and pape
