The stories next to the patterns are quite fun to read and the it is overall an extremely beautiful book. However, I expected more variety and whimsical. It was my first shot at cross stitch and the tutorial pages were indeed extremely helpful. I started with one of the big pieces (owl) which had a perfect balance of challenge and variety in terms of colours and shapes. After completing this one project the rest seems quite dull. If the book had more pieces like the owl I would find it a lot more enjoyable and would give it more stars.

I did appreciate the starter kit! The needle was very nice but the quality of the thread was not great. If you would like to try one of her books, I would recommend trying another one with a bit more variety and colour, If you do not mind making simple shapes however or you really want to start simple then this might be a good fit.

This book is beautifully presented. The illustrations are of high quality and the book is made of lovely paper, good enough to leave on your coffee table. Delilah's stylish designs would make a welcome addition to your home, as they can be made into useful items rather than just something to hang on the wall. The stories add to the charm of this book. There is also a small kit included to get you started on a simple design. Fantastic.

Lovely ideas, clear and easy instructions. My little sister and I love the projects in this book. We like cross stitching but hate anything too twee (like cats with vases and bouquets in baskets) so this book was right up our street.

Great book, has lots of things to do. Nice to see a cross stitch book with a more modern feel.
Most of the items look pretty straight forward to made, going to have a go at the unicorn shadow first.

Love this book! Exactly the type of designs I have been looking for for ages. Good value and didn't expect there to be a kit included!

The designs in this book are very interesting and I really like how it makes each project so simple and also gives you an expected time that it should take for each design. Very good book with lots to do!
