Everything I hoped for. Lovely contemporary patterns that are so hard to find in cross stitch normally. I think it is brilliant value and a lovely book. Pre ordered arrived ahead of expected release date which is great as it gives me time to make things for Christmas gifts (sorry family)
My husband who loves country life but works in the City of London loved this book. He said is was one of the few books since he left school (he is 43!) that he has been unable to put down. He is not illiterate but would rather spend free time outdoors. Can recommend it highly to anyone who loves country tales and BB.
