Each of the colorful projects in this collection of 30 miniature cross-stitched cushions is made from the same basic template, a four-petal flower surrounded by crazy patchwork patterns. The six-inch by six-inch cushions-many with seed bead fringes or beads incorporated into the designs-can be adorned with a tassel and displayed on the wall, made up into pin cushions or Christmas ornaments, or used as the centerpiece for greeting cards. This book will appeal to cross-stitchers with some experience, but even enthusiastic novices will find its designs-many of which incorporate elements of nature like butterflies, flowers, and leaves-easy to embroider. Designs are fully charted in color, with each including a materials list specifying DMC, Anchor, and Madeira threads. For readers wishing to design their own cushions, a blank-chart template adds to the book's interest. A fine choice for public libraries where there is demand for cross-stitch project books.
