Slow cookers are a great way to prepare your meals.  Pop all your ingredients into the pot and turn to low. When you come home from work, voila, dinner is served. Slow cookers are a great way to prepare the perfect soups and stews. Find soup bones and lamb shanks at the butchers, and add some dried soup mix and vegetables from the supermarket. Plonk it all in the slow cooker and the hard work is done.  Warm up some crusty rolls or garlic bread and the meal is complete.  Check out pages 70-76 to get the low down on how to make a variety of warming winter meals!

Need new cushions for the easy chair?  Make one, it’s easy! Learn how on page 100. Check out pages 164-170 for more instructions and materials. While you’re trying out new crafts, why not have a crack at creating this plywood elephant, a fantastic addition to your kids bedroom, with plenty of room for their favourite books and toys. You can find the instructions, templates and supply lists on pages 126-130.

On a budget and need a special print to finish a room? Have you thought about creating your very own fabric prints? Use your own designs to personalise lamp shades, cushions, wall hangings or table mats.  You can find everything you need to know on pages 110-113. You’ll be surprised by the impact a print cam have on your room.
