5.0 out of 5 stars Gorgeous colours and pictures, 19 Sep 2006
This review is from: Sue Cook's Bumper Cross Stitch Collection: 12 Pictures and Hundreds of Motifs to Celebrate the Year (Hardcover)
I read somewhere that Sue Cook collects classic children's illustration, and it shows! The base of this book are twelve pictures to represent the twelve months of the year, and they are done in a very classic children's storybook style. For example, January is "Dear Diary" and a little girl in bed writing her diary while fireworks explode outside the window, April is "Nice Weather for Ducks" and a little boy in his raincoat in the rain playing with ducks, May shows a little girl smearing herself in paint while she attempts to redecorate her bedroom, June is a beautiful fantasy of a white dovecote and fantasy house in lovely gardens against a new pink sky etc. etc.

Then in each monthly chapter, she adds a lot of smaller motifs that can be put together any way you want. The UK and the USA are both represented, so there is Big Ben and Guy Fawkes as well as Thanksgiving and July 4th. Some are traditional and in old-fashioned dress; some are funky and in modern dress. Some are laced with wit - I get the impression that Sue likes chocolates and the January sales, but not housework!

If you like Joan Elliott and the Kooler Studio, you will probably like this, and it's a gorgeous book.

If you're a cross stitcher it's a good book to have in your collection. The patterns are colourful and easy to follow.
