This book is really misnamed, as it isn't just about cross-stitch. It also introduces designs for blackwork and drawn thread work and shows how to make needlelace flowers.

The designs have a rather old-fashioned feel to them, so you need to consider if you like this style of pattern.

The biggest problem for me (which may be a bonus to other stitchers) is that none of the designs use fractional cross-stitches. This makes them very easy to sew, but means that the results are very angular and blocky. I find that flowers and birds with zig zag edges don't really work for me.

The only reason I've kept this book is becasue of the stitch library at the back, which has a variety of drawn-thread hemming techniques and Hardanger stitches as well as a selection of decorative filling stitches.
