This would be a wonderful addition to my embroidery patterns collection.

I can see lots of uses for these

I love the review and it has open my eyes to the thought of embroidery. I am 60 years old and I never thought of or known such exciting things about designs. I am having my eyes open to much more avenues of creativity and this book brings out so much information. I wish I could have this.
