I bought this book for my brother who never reads but loves his plants and trees, he was well chuffed and has now read it cover to cover! There's some lovely photography and it's full of information on various ancient tree species from around the world. A great gift for your tree-loving friend!
Having previously read and been inspired by The Gentle Art of Quilt-Making I was very pleased to discover this book continues in a similar way. It's full of lovely projects, all of which use simple stitches very effectively to create beautiful and useful objects from cushions to quilts. Would definitely make a lovely gift for the gentle stitcher in your life, I for one can't wait to get sewing!
