My Thoughts

This is a really wonderful book for anyone who is interested in stitching for the little ones. I had planned to utilize this book to the full over the holidays. But due to some unforeseeable reasons (read : someone forgot to get most of the stuff on my wish-list!), I haven't yet been able to do so - yet. However, I look forward to trying it out in the near future. Just from my look through this book, I can tell you it put my mind at ease as it's been years since I picked up a needle. The patterns are beautiful, the instructions easy, the photos alluring and the whole thing is packaged beautifully in a convenient book form. I'd highly recommend you try it out yourself.
