From Library Journal:

In this publication, originating in Australia, embroidered borders of delicate flowers are created by massing together simple stitches. Detailed explanations, measurements in both metric and inches, and step-by-step drawings are given for such items as a detachable collar, a jewelry roll, and embroidered buttons, all of which are illustrated in the 16 pages of color illustrations found in two inserts. Some projects involve additional machine sewing while others embellish store-bought items, and, occasionally, the lists of materials call for types of embroidery threads that may be difficult to find, but most embroiderers will be undaunted by the challenge of re-creating these techniques. Sweet and old-fashioned, this embroidery style could be combined well with heirloom sewing techniques. Recommended for public libraries serving embroiderers.

From Booklist:

A first-time author from Down Under provides an unusual twist to the French knot-chain stitch mode of embroidery. Newman's emphasis is not only on more than 20 projects that can be quickly completed, but also on supplying information beyond simple lists of materials needed. Here, she explains the anatomy of needles and threads (why, for example, certain threads fray more often than others) and demonstrates how heirloom sewing can be accomplished on a machine. Some of the projects consider a stitcher's time constraints, so, for instance, she advocates buying baby T-shirts and pants at retail, then adding the decoration. How-to stitch illustrations and accompanying text could be clearer, but, on the whole, a beginner can follow the instructions for a handmade item. Barbara Jacobs
