What a great book this is..I have always loved and purchased few of Aneela Hoey's embroidery patterns to try. I am almost a novice when it comes to embroidery but this book is such an inspiration to try out the cute characters along with the projects..the book guides you from how to do to finish the project...I started reading the book and got hooked on it till I read and saw all the projects..lovely book a must have.
