5.0 out of 5 stars Something Fantastic for everyone 29 Mar 2001
By A Customer
I discovered this book a while ago, when I was looking for a collection of designs which didn't include flowers or kittens. I often find it difficult to find bold interesting designs, but Julie Hasler has given me hope!
This is a great book for both experienced and novice cross-stitchers. There are big projects (Pegasus, a unicorn and a dragon among others) and very small ones (a selection of motifs including Norse, Egyptian and Celtic symbols). But the thing which I like most about it are the star signs. Julie Hasler has designed colourful and vibrant zodiac symbols - the only problem was choosing which one to do first! They are especially dramatic when stitched on a black background.
The only negative comment I have is that I *personally* don't like the two Viking designs or the wizard design. But as I say that's a personal preference and I know a couple of other people who really like them. The book also has stitching tips and advice on threads and materials - and clear instructions on mounting your work as recommended by Ms Hasler, eg on cushions or mirrors.
I highly recommend this book for anyone who wants to stitch strong bold designs with a fantasy theme - and especially for anyone with a particular interest in zodiac signs. I know I'll come back to it again and again.

Fantasy Cross Stitch has a wide array of mythical and fantasy designs. All of the zodiac signs are included so that no one is missed out, and there are even Egyptian designs for people with interests in that area. The designs are in colour, though the carts are a bit small in places, but these can be easily blown up on a colour photocopier. My personal favourite is the celestial mirror, which I hope to complete very soon!

5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous designs 5 Sep 2007
Julie Hasler is a cross stitch designer whose work has always appealed to me. This particular book of her designs is of great use to the pagan stitcher because of the fantasy theme. There are some different designs to the usual Zodiac ones, not to mention some fabulous others including unicorns, Pegasus, a wizard, a mermaid and also images from Egyptian and Greek mythology. For the Norse influenced stitcher there are large designs of Frey and Sif, but only a few rune designs: I would have prefered all of them since they are not always that easy to chart yourself. Many of the designs are large, but there are many small ones in the book, including a St. Bridgets Cross, Eye of Horus, yin yang, etc the symbols here are from many different religions but sadly there is no pentacle or pentagram which I would have liked since I have found it very hard to chart myself a good small pentacle. However the book is aimed at stichers of fantasy not the Pagan stitcher, but it falls very nicely into the Pagan stitchers potential sewing projects.

The book is a good size enabling stitchers to work directly from the book. All the charts are colour which I find easier to work with these days as opposed to symbols and the charts are clearly displayed. It is well illustrated throughout showing how the finished design should appear, with good clear full page colour photographs and gives step by step instructions on how to turn your masterpiece into a cushion, greetings card, framed picture or wall hanging etc. The designs can be tackled by a novice or an experienced stitcher.

It is a good book that I like to work from but am equally happy just to pick it up and look at it dreaming of which project I should start next! It is also clearly a popular book with other stitching fans of fantasy themes, as since the book was first published in 1997 it has been republished six times. It is a book that I am sure that almost every Pagan and fantasy lover cross stitcher will want to have.

Thought it would be a lot better than it was. Some designs are ok but a lot of them are not that inspiring.
