Beautiful designs with clear, easy to follow patterns included. I got this with the aim of stitching the crescent moon dragon, but I haven't quite finished that yet and I already have a list of projects to keep me busy for a while.
One or two hang ups (hence four stars) relating to the materials list and the stitching key.
On at least one occasion (the dragon) the beads listed in the materials are a different shape/size to those in the design key. I was able to identify which I needed as one of the colours was only available in one of the two sizes, however this is a problem.
On top of this, the number of spools of kreinik listed doesn't particularly seem to relate to the design. I have already completed all sections of the dragon that require Elfin green kreinik, and I still have three quarters of what I bought left, which seems more than a little ridiculous (looking at the design in hindsight, it is very clear that the number of spools listed in the materials was too high). I suspect I may encounter similar problems with the other specialty threads.
This is, however, not a reason to put you off buying the book. As I said, the designs are beautiful and I've loved every minute stitching my dragon, and am looking forward to trying the rest of the designs. :)
