Other Thoughts:One of the reasons I bought this item was due to the really interesting heart found on the cover as well as the rave reviews. I really ended up loving it!
<br/>This is great for the beginner, or the advanced who wants to take a break from huge projects we all know will never get finished. I have been stitching for a long time.
Other Thoughts:I have stitched this lady design and when friends come over they compliment how cute it is and where I got it. I tell them I stitched it and they reply that they thought stitching was what grandmas did! She is an amazing designer and a breath of fresh air for us younger stitchers.
<br/>The patterns range from beginner to medium. I cannot wait to cross stitch!
Other Thoughts:I'm just getting into cross stitch again. I dabbled a bit when I was a kid... my mom was the real expert, turning out beautiful pieces, sometimes overnight. I'm not to the point of doing some as detailed as hers but I wanted to get started again. This book Counted Cross Stitch was much better quality than the other I'd seen. Highly recomended!
Other Thoughts:If you are looking for complicated color patterns however, I'd give it a miss. The author relies more on varigated threads and multi-hued backgrounds to add sparkle to her designs. A good way for begingers to get some extra bang for their buck when first stepping into the cross-stitch world.
