This book is just perfect for the cross stitcher who wants to go 'Around the World in 80 Days' - or however long it would take to do all the motifs in this book. Lesley Teare can always be relied on to produce clear and attractive designs and she does it again in this book. There are a whole range of motifs of varying shapes and sizes so whether you want to stitch something small such as a pin cushion or a bookmark, or design your own sampler then there is something in here to suit. Plus there are some beautiful designs just begging to be stitched and framed - I'm itching to start on the map of Australia. With so many designs included this book represents excellent value for money.

i bought this book for one particular design of a tiger that i wanted to stitch for a friends birthday, which was much appreciated. I have since looked through the rest of the book and been pleasantly surprised, loads of various size designs, suitable for all sorts of projects, definitely worth buying when stuck for inspiration :)
