Summary

A Book of the Month Club's Crafter's Choice!

Cross-stitch is a traditional hobby — but your designs don't have to be! These more than 130 patterns reflect a modern sensibility, with motifs ranging from trendy to vintage to kitschy, so there's something here for everyone. All are designed to fit into a 6-inch or smaller embroidery hoop, making them quick projects that can be finished in an evening or weekend. If you're feeling ambitious, the small designs can be assembled to form a larger piece.
Patterns are organized according to theme: animals; designs, including flowers and snowflakes; home and hearth, consisting of more than 40 patterns that range from a patchwork heart and an antique sewing machine to teapots, a watering can, and variations on "home sweet home"; nature; and charming patterns for special occasions. A brief introductory section offers advice on getting started, tools and supplies, and stitching.

"A treat! Cross-stitchers will love this book." — Christian Fiction and More
