Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Boerens's (Two-Hour Cross-Stitch) second collection of small cross-stitch motifs focuses on flowers, with designs organized by type (traditional, deco, formal, and fantasy, along with a section of monograms and messages). As expected, the motifs are colorful and cheery, and the variety of styles means that there's a floral pattern for every need. Knowledge of cross-stitch is assumed--this is predominantly a pattern book--but there is a two-page introduction to the basics. VERDICT: The variety of floral motifs makes this book an excellent value for cross-stitch collections.” --Library Journal

Good for small quick projects. Many patterns to choose from. Exactly what I was looking for.

I taught my daughters to cross stitch at a young age and they have all really enjoyed having that skill and have also made some really beautiful creations. I appreciate how inexpensive the materials are and how I can pick up right where I left off with the project that I'm are working on. I loved the idea of Two-Hour Cross-Stitch that has 300 quick and easy designs. It is written by Trice Boerens and is set up in a simple and clear way, with the actual finished designs on one side of the page and the stitching diagrams next to them. I like to cross stitch while I watch tv, and the ideas in Two-Hour Cross-Stitch are ideal for me to make while watching one or two programs. There's lots of beautiful floral patterns, but also other treats like a beehive (my favorite!), an apple tree and even a cute, little garden gnome!
