Postcard Reviews

This is a very pretty book and the designs are simple and beautiful. I love the detail in the images, and the projects that they accompany are useful for both the home and gift giving. 

Sizes of each project are given along with the materials that you will need.The book is complete with actual size patterns, which is fabulous and the cross stitch charts are colourful and easy to follow. Each one has a colour guide in DMC thread. You can choose your own colour choice and thread preference.Cross stitch is an easy craft and beginners will find that they will soon enjoy their new addiction.

The projects are amazing, from updating your little black dress to stunning earrings to book covers and a stunning garland. I adored the 'Slippers' project and this will be the first of the designs that I will complete. I am sure I can adapt them to my personal style. The photography is just divine and showcases each project perfectly.

I would recommend this book to every stitcher, from beginner to advanced. Not only is this book beautiful it has project for everyone and for every occasion.

A beautiful book full of exquisite original cross stitch designs paired with delicious Liberty fabric. Hélène has mixed and matched her cross stitch designs perfectly to produce highly original work to be treasured. The book is divided into three sections - 'Just for you,' 'In the home' and 'For baby.' With eight projects in each section there is a good variety of patterns. There are three bags, a cushion, a book cover, a rattle, a garland, some slippers, a tea pouch, a placemat, some photo frames and a hair accessory amongst many others. The projects are very well organised. There is a small section at the start to tell you exactly what you need such as the measurements of the fabric, right down to the details of specific thread needed to sew one button. There are six pages of full size patterns at the back of the book that you won't have to enlarge on a photocopier. Before that there are 18 pages of cross stitch patterns which are colour coded and labelled with the thread codes next to the colours. The projects are based around Liberty fabrics and they are clearly identified in the materials section but you could always use other fabric of your choice if you could not find them or if they have been discontinued as the author says in the back of the book. I think this is a wonderful book if you love sewing and cross stitch. It's a great book for beautiful presents for people you love as the delicacy of the cross stitch will make it look laboured when it has actually been relatively easy.
