And then there's the projects - they're not just all doilies. It also has cushions, bolster, cards, scissors case etc. The projects show a range of finishing techniques, meaning that you don't just have to frame everything!
I highly recommend this book to ALL hardanger embroiderers: both beginners and advanced stitchers will get a lot out of it.
Now, lets talk about the projects and pictures. There's a color photo for each project in the middle of the book and a black & white photo with each project. The charts range from beginner to advanced level, and trust me, you'll want to stitch each one. The fibers and fabrics called for are pretty easy to acquire either from your local store or the internet; and if you need to substitute something, you can do so with ease.
I can't recommend this book highly enough!! And if you have any questions about the designs or techniques, you can reach the author via e-mail and she's friendly and very happy to help. Whether you're a beginner or have been stitching for years, you can't go wrong by adding this book to your library!
