    Simply Amazing!

    I admit that I have not made anything yet from this book, However, I feel that it is a must have for all creative needlecraftspersons. The illustrarions are fresh, new, innovative and could be interpreted into other needlework forms. I love this book and have probably sold a couple more by sharing it with my friends. This would be a great gift
