Review:

Drawing inspiration from nature, this inviting book offers a series of advanced cross-stitch projects and coordinating variations. The seven elaborate projects are gorgeously photographed and beautifully framed in a lovely fruit and flower tableaux. The stitching charts are thorough and relatively clear, although their large size (most are approximately 11 x 16 inches) necessitates running each one over six book spreads. For stitchers who'd like to make accessories to coordinate with the large pictures--or for those who'd prefer to begin with something smaller--six of the designs provide accompanying projects (including towels, boxes, and bedroom accessories) stitched with elements drawn directly from the larger pieces.
