After having read and created many projects from other books of this type, I have to say this is the best and most informative book up to date. The author not only shows us projects using many types of different needlework, she also explains the history behind them. Mostly this book is limited to the "Victorian" period, but it looks like she plans to produce other books along this line on other periods. Although I find this book especially to my liking, I don't think it is for everyone. Most of the projects are for the advanced needleworker with some very fine detailed oriented designs. There are patterns for using needlepoint, embroidery, quilting, netting and so on, and they consist of projects from rugs to quilts to curtains and small items. I can't wait for her next book to come out.
This is a great book for the miniature needleworker. It contains a wide variety of needlework types, projects and finishing techniques. I made a needlepoint rug from one of the patterns and was very pleased with the results. The patterns are printed a bit small so helpful if you can find a way to enlarge.
Nice patterns. Good instructions. Good photos.
