From Booklist:

Counted cross-stitch has been woven into the fabric of U.S. crafts for so long now, thanks to Erica Wilson and others, that the novelty of such projects occurs in the design. Once again, Lindberg doesn't disappoint. More than 50 patterns, inspired by Viking ancestors and religious and folk traditions in Norway, Sweden, and Denmark, will busy any stitcher's fingers. As it should, the entire book focuses on the projects, curiously contemporary in their colors, shapes, and applications. Of particular interest are adaptations of three woodcuts from Hans Christian Andersen's writings, of two well-known Danish floral porcelain designs, and of bold Viking patterns. Not to be overlooked by crafters. Barbara Jacobs
