Review of the previous edition: “If you cross stitch then this book is a fantastic addition to your library. It’s one you’ll use time and again.” www.crochetaddictuk.com, 2015
This fantastic resource and reference book for cross stitchers contains 1000 mini motifs for all occasions. Previously published as a paperback, this edition is in a larger format and with a flexible, lie-flat binding, making the charts even easier to read and use. The book includes all of the designs that made the previous edition so popular and is brimming over with ideas and inspiration for mini projects, gifts and samplers. It offers a wonderful selection of charming mix-and-match motifs, borders and images covering a huge range of subjects, including flowers, animals, teatime treats, travel, little people, houses and much more, all grouped into popular themes including weddings, birthdays, Christmas and Easter. A helpful introduction provides useful advice on materials and techniques, and worked examples show how the motifs can be used on samplers, greetings cards and other items. Mini motifs are quick and easy to stitch, so beginners have all they need within these pages to create a special gift for their friends and loved ones, and more experienced stitchers will find this treasure trove of ideas an invaluable source of inspiration.
