Postcard Reviews August 2020

I absolutely adore cross stitch and this book is a beauty.
Over 30 botanical motifs, including Dandlion, Japanese primrose and many more are yours to use to decorate and adorn your home.
The first part of the book showcase each design stitched and finished. There are techniques, stitch guide and things you will need to start your cross stitching journey and then there are the cross stitching charts.
All the designs are stitched using DMC thread, but you can use your own choice of threads and colours.
The designs in this book would make a stunning sampler, but can also be used to descorate hand towels, aprons and napkins.
All the designs are both elegant and stunning.
Happy cross stitching!
