The African Cross Stitch Collection (Milner Craft Series)by Trish Burr
The beautiful culmination of years of work and research on African life and its fascinating customs, this exquisite collection contains a wonderful abundance of scenic plant, bird, and wildlife scenes to embroider. Enchanting projects in bright and vivid color and accompanied by little folkloric stories capture Africa from sunrise to sunset. They progress from quick and easy designs to more challenging patterns for the advanced stitcher. An additional alphabet chart and motif library are included.

These designs are like music to the eyes. I stumbled over this book and plan to search out Trish Burr's other books. There is joy in these designs--the use of brilliant color and shading is lovely. The projects would make great unique gifts yet the motifs can be adapted for other projects that suddenly spring to mind. I think a toddler would be enamored with a cross-stitch afghan sporting these colorful ostrich, chameleon, giraffe, cheetah and kudu. Thank you Trish Burr--it is obvious you love what you do.
