Beautiful, amazing, gorgeous!
There are so many words that I could use to describe this book.
I love the fact that it has gone back to designs from
the past and brought them back in a way that makes
it up to date.

The book starts with the most amazing pictures
of each of the motifs and how they can be used. 

Once you have ooed and awed at the pictures
you are taking through the steps of making the beautiful items.
First it talks you through materials and tools,
then moving onto techniques & how to start & finish stitches.

Then you move onto the instructions.
The instructions take you through everything you 
will need to know to make each of the projects.
These include diagrams and pictures.
The also include the motifs and what stitches you will
need to use. 
At the back you also have an overview on how to embroider
the stitches.

You aren't provided with separate templates
for each of the projects.
However you either have a template to copy
or the basic sizes are shown. 

I don't feel this book is a beginners book
but for someone who already loves to embroider.
I think the pictures and designs speak for themselves.
They are exquisite!!!

This book would be amazing as a present
but each of the projects would
make something special for someone.
