          I'll have a good look through them and if there is anything I think would be suitable I'll scan them and put them on my flickr account. It does not just show you how to do a particular craft but how to make tools for that craft, an example being weaving, it shows you how to make a simple table top loom !

            My sister was one of those who actually bought all the golden hands magazines BRAND NEW when they came out. I think it worked out to something like £120 altogether, when you could buy a good craft book for £10. Years later they brought out a golden hands hardback, with a selection from the mags - my sister bought one for me.

              Well done...I haven't been to a car booty for ages. Do you go to auctions too, must admit I've been to 'a few' this year, very addictive...

                Fab! I've got a couple of the Golden Hands books and I've been flicking through them (along with all my other mags and books) and putting post it's in for things I'd like to try.

                Fab bargain though! You should join some of the thifty groups on flickr

                  I've seen them some time ago but never got my grubby little mitts on them. Well done.
