    There are some lovely cross stitch designs in this book, all beautifully presented with both a color chart for thread and a very easy to read graph for each design They cover Christmas, seaside, plants, sayings, animals birds, snowflakes and some lovely pattern interlocking combinations There is some clear instructions at the beginning of the book and then just designs from then on I loved the little hedgehog in the front cover, and there is a lovely fir tree forest combination that I like too, but all in all lovely designs for any occasion.

    Most projects in this collection can be completed in a short amount of time Many designs are similar to freebies found on various manufacturer, designer, and shop sites on the Internet I found only a handful of patterns that interested me enough to stitch The best audience for this may be a child just learning to stitch as several designs are quick to stitch, colorful, don t require a lot of fabric, and can provide a quick sense of accomplishment For the nearly 20 purchase price, I will not be purchasing a copy for myself Stitchers probably want to browse a copy in a bookstore or cross stitch shop before purchasing it to make sure it interests them enough This review is based on an electronic copy provided by the publisher through NetGalley with expectations of an honest review.

    I love leafing through sewing and cross stitch books Even though I m probably not going to learn anything new, every now and then I ll pick up a nifty tip or stumble upon a nice design I d like to try.This is a lovely little cross stitch book which would be perfect for beginners and or children None of the patterns are particularly difficult and all come with straight forward instructions Not sure whether the copy I downloaded was incomplete, or likely, the book is still under construction, but it would have been a nice touch to have a little thumbprint of the finished product next to each pattern This was blank in the copy I have so I hope this rectified when it is published An advance reader copy was kindly given by the publishers via Netgalley

    Cross stitch is one of the very first crafts I picked up as a child My mother did it, as did my Aunt Grace, who was also gifted at embroidery, needlepoint and pretty much any kind of needlework My aunt s house had wall after wall of framed pieces of her work, all stunning, all screaming art at me As a kid who was academically gifted, but creatively stunted, cross stitch seemed like a way to be creative without too much risk After all, it came with a pattern, so all I had to do was follow instructions and I could create something stunning like my aunt, right Needless to say, I ve been cross stitching all these years, longer than I ve done any other craft other than perhaps crochet, which is a very narrow second So much so, that like my aunt, I m known for it in my family , and when she passed, all of her unfinished work was passed on to me unopened kits going back to the 70 s So now you know why I was interested in this book As for the book itself, it would be wonderful for any beginning cross stitcher The introduction offers clear and concise instructions on stitching technique and typical materials Then the patterns are organized by theme None of the patterns are overly complex not that anything about cross stitch really is anyhow , and all are on the small side, many being under 3 x 3 , all being under 6 x 6 This means they work up quickly Great for building confidence through practice without being overwhelmed Each pattern shows a small image of the finished product, a larger copy of the actual pattern, and a color key box for DMC floss The patterns are whimsical, as promised My favorites were the dragons, dinosaurs, hedgehogs and chickens, as well as the two that revolved around books There are also holiday themes and one collection of alphabet stitches Several patterns could be put together to create a sampler of sorts, allowing the stitcher to work on small projects and integrate them into one large one.I wouldn t necessarily recommend this book for experienced cross stitchers, but it would be fabulous for a beginner.All around, a cute cross stitch book Note I received this book from the publisher via NetGalley I pride myself on writing fair and honest reviews.

    A super cute collection of cross stitch designs Designs are grouped in the following categories animals real and fantasy , dashing designs, home and hearth, nature in bloom and special occasions As expected in this type of book, the basics of cross stitch are covered before getting into the designs and many designs would be easily stitchable by a newbie, but there are also designs that would present challenge Charts are clearly done I found quite a few designs I d love to stitch for myself and for gifts Thank you to Dover Publications and Netgalley for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for my honest review.
