The pros: This is a lovely book filled with beautiful photos of quality hand-made tools, luxurious yarns and artfully styled vignettes. The cons: To a fan of Maryanne Moodie’s work looking for ideas and techniques for creating beautiful wall hangings like those she is known for, this book falls seriously short. There is really only one project resembling Moodie’s signature weavings and it is accompanied by just some very basic instructions. The rest of the projects are an odd mix of things, most of which I find unattractive and/or not useful, and none of which seem to sync with Moodie’s distinct aesthetic: a scarf that looks like a rug, a recycled blue jean basket, a tepee of logs wrapped in ribbon, and a stool cover that looks like an uncomfortable nest of tangled yarns. Plus, there are a bunch of projects that seem more appropriate for children, such as the crystal mat (a/k/a god’s eye), a branch weaving, string and cardboard ornaments, and a hair weaving. Overall, I give 5 stars for Moodie’s work and 1 star for this book.
