Wonderful...wonderful !

There are so many cross stitching books that are so similar that it is a real joy to find one that is out of the ordinary. The designs are many and for the most part are different and interesting. I bought the book this morning and I have not moved since I started looking at it. My biggest problem is deciding what will I do first. I hope that Ms. Welsby has more books!!!

Not just for cross-stitchers!

This book is a treasure trove! I confess, I do not cross-stitch. I do filet crochet, which uses thread to make lace. I have just finished creating a pattern for lace curtains for my kitchen, combining various motifs I found in this cross-stitch book. Since this book features silhouettes, few if any modifications are necessary to make the patterns work for filet. Frankly, it is a better filet collection than many filet books! And of course, I'm sure it's wonderful for cross-stitchers, too. The patterns include wonderful (and unusual) nature scenes, scenes of children at play, cross-cultural patterns, holiday patterns,borders,traditional designs, contemporary designs,and more! You can find patterns for the Taj Mahal, the Statue of Liberty, or a scene right out of the Everglades. And of course you can mix and match motifs to make your own creation. I highly recommend this book.
