Whether you already embroider or you want to learn
this is a fantastic book of small
pretty embroidery designs.

The book talks you through how to use the book,
how to use the threads & fantastic pictures and descriptions
on how to embroider the different stitches.

From then on the book is split up by themes.
On one page you are shown the embroidery made up
and on the the other page design diagram.

The first part is Home & Hobby and covers:
Sewing, Kitchen, Household, Interior & Gardening.

Part Two is Nature's Living Things:
Animals, Little Flowers, Little Creatures, Leaves & Nuts.

What I love about the different designs is not only are there so many
to choose from, you also can use many of them together.

Part Three is Special Occasions:
Hello Baby, Happy Birthday, Happy Wedding, Merry Christmas

With so many different things covered you are bound to find something
for every eventuality and can add something beautiful
to any gift.

 Part Four: Tasty Things to Eat:
Pastries, Cafe Sweets, Fruits & Vegetables.

Part Five: Letters & Numbers:
Print Alphabet, Decorative Letters, Cursive Alphabet & Floral Letters.

I've not shown you all the full designs as it would mean you wouldn't
need to buy the book and I really think this is a wonderful book to purchase.
I have never embroidered before but I have now:

This is from this book and I loved making it.
Little Red has already picked a design he wants in his room.
The designs are easy to follow and the stitch instructions
are clear enough so even a newbie like me can
make something.
I am really excited about the thought of adding that little
extra something that I can add to gifts.
So even if I don't have time to make something from start
to finish I can add that something.

I love this book and am going to be using
for years to come!
It's well worth buying.

I received the book to review.
