I was pleasantly surprised when I received this book. For $10 I was expecting a flimsy chartlet with some black and white photocopy type pages inside. Not so. This is a nicely bound, hard cover book with quality print pages, color examples and clear directions for any level cross stitcher. Great for a beginner because the projects don’t require any specialty stitches and can easily be stitched on aida fabric. I am loving this little book right now, and it’s proudly sitting on my coffee table for everyone to see instead of hidden away in the filing bin with all my other cross stitch charts.
