Another excellent craft book by Cath Kidston!,
This review is from: Cath Kidston Stitch! (Paperback)
Having enjoyed CK's previous book Sew! I was really looking forward to this one and found it a complete delight. This book is all about cross stitch (tapestry / needlepoint) and the simple step by step instructions made it really easy and enjoyable to make some really beautiful things. Each project in the book is rated by difficulty so beginners as well as more experienced cross stitchers can enjoy it. I hadn't done any cross stitch since school days (very basic stuff) but I have now made beautiful pin cushions and cushion covers, all with CK's beautiful designs, and thoroughly enjoyed it! The book comes with all the materials you need to complete one of the projects (everything except the needle!) so you can pretty much get started straight away, and in the back of the book there's a list of suppliers for everything else you need to complete the other projects which is really useful. I ordered all my tapestry wools, needles and canvas from a listed online source which was very reasonable and arrived the next day! I would completely recommend this book for anyone crafty.
