For £4.36 you get a beautifully produced little hardback book with 126 pages. There are 31 little samplers produced at a good size to work from and the main motifs are reproduced at a large scale making working from the patterns easy. The fact the book is french doesn't matter, Toile Aida 14- creme, schema 88 x 91 cases and format 14.5 x 13.97 cm is obvious if you are used to cross-stitching. The motifs are mainly to do with kitchens,cooking and food. There are lots of teapots, food and baking images, so if this is what you are after its great. It wasn't really what I wanted, the cover made me expect more plants and natural images. If Amazon had shown the back cover I would have realised what it was about. I will however make gifts from it for foodie friends and for £4.36 its a bargain.
