This book is part of the Twenty To Make series. It's a quirky new take on cross stitch influenced by a love of architecture, buildings and gardens. The twenty unique, contemporary designs are shown with charts to work. There is a brief stitching guide. I love the birthday cake, daises and village. The latter and a couple of other designs remind me of the architect Gaudi. All the designs are worked as mini designs, so they are relatively quick to make. Great little book.

An attractive and useful little book with designs in Michael Powell's recognisable and distinctive style. The projects really are mini, but there are suggestions about how they might be used to increase their versatility.Buildings feature, of course, with a Mediterranean feel, but there are also some floral designs, some unexpected ideas and the ubiquitous cupcake! The book would suit an absolute beginner, as there are clear instructions and embroidery thread numbers listed for each project, but the more experienced cross-stitcher should be able to adapt the designs for different colourways. It is a useful addition to this series and very good value, comparing favourably to the cost of a magazine. Recommended for those who welcome something a little bit different in the cross-stitching world..

M Powell designs are always a big hit with me.
I've purchased this book as a Christmas gift with the intension of borrowing it to do one or two projects in there that I liked too.
I love M Powell art work and his cross stitch designs and his kits are always well set out and easy to follow and create. You can truly feel proud when your projects are completed as they look fun and quirky, bright and cheery.
This book lays the charts out in colour in a nice size to read and follow.

Well done M Powell. Look forward to more like this from you.

I love Michael Powell's cross stitch designs but don't have time to stitch the big ones so this little book is perfect. Many can be made from leftovers from other projects, though some folk may need to purchase all items required. There's a good mix of designs,from cupcakes and hearts to flowers and his inimitable quirky cottages and villages - and all for less money than many magazines. All in all, a great little book at a brilliant price.

This is a great little book for cross stitch fans and the charts are delightfully different.

The only problem I have with it is that the charts use an awful lot of different colours of threads and it can be quite expensive to stitch most of them.

As an avid cross stitcher of mature years I struggled with Michael Powell's work at first. Where were the straight lines? The more I did the more I grew to love them. They are quirky, fun to sew and the colours are exciting. I am a convert to his style. His original art work, mostly in pen and ink, is beautifully drawn. The projects are simple and not demanding of your time. Go on, have a go. If I can be converted you will too.

This is a fabulous little book with a range of patterns from simple to complex, small to reasonable size. Considering how expensive Michael's kits are, I'm amazed at the low price of this book and think it is excellent value for money.

It will give me many enjoyable hours of stitching and I will recommend it to all my friends and relatives who stitch.

This is a book of twenty awesome cross stitching projects. The designs are simple but elegant and the charts are so easy to follow. Also all in full stitches so no half or fractional stitching. I will be looking at getting more books from the author as he has designed projects for all tastes. Delivery was super quick as only ordered yesterday and arrived today.

I've used Michael Powell designs before, so I was really pleased to see that there was a book of his patterns.
I was not disappointed! Small quirky and Oh so different....each one a little Gem!There are 'quick-to-do' as well as more detailed. Something for every occasion. They may be Mini designs but they'll give Maxi Pleasure
