5.0 out of 5 stars At last! Some projects to really keep me going!, 5 Jan. 2006
This review is from: Famous Paintings in Cross Stitch (Hamlyn Home & Crafts S.) (Hardcover)
I am an avid cross-stitch fan and sew quite fast, so I get through projects in no time and am running out of people to give them to. I was so excited to see a book full of really detailed, large pictures, like Van Gogh's Irises, Boticelli's Venus and Raphael's sweet little cherub. Projects that I could really get stuck into - and everything I've sewn from this book has been as good as it promised. Great charting and not too many threads given the artworks - I don't know how the charter managed to reproduce such realistic skin tones. Fun to work on because sometimes you can't see what you're making until you're about halfway done - and the paintings are INCREDIBLE when stiched - real works of art. My kids have been stunned by the way I'm casually producing famous paintings and are actually lining up to claim them - one daughter said she considered my irises a family keepsake that should pass down the generations (I think she's getting a bit carried away there, but even I am surprised by the beautiful pictures that appear).
This book made me feel genuinely creative. More please!

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Famous Paintings in Cross Stitch (Hamlyn Home & Crafts S.) (Hardcover)
I love the idea of reproducing old masters in cross stitch. I have to say its for very experienced stitches who have a lot of patience, I have not yet worked any of the charts, but the book itself is a joy to look through,
