    Awesome!!

    I like this book as it has some good illustrations to go along with the written instructions. Sometimes books and magazines give you illustrations that are not very easy to follow. I feel that the illustrations in this book, for the most part, are easy to follow. This is my first purchase of this type of book. I like it and will probably purchase others on this topic. I might see what else they have available for other crafting areas as well.
