Subtitle: 30 Chartered Patterns to create your own designs for needlepoint and cross stitch. The designs stitched for the cover of this book are simple, fruits and leaves but the colors, the shading work, all of it is wonderful.
Quoting from the back cover:
"Innovative ideas for creating Original Designs"
"Stunning Projects including chair covers, footstools, table linens, curtains, cushions and clothes."
"Practical advice on simple upholstery and cushion finishing procedures"
"Clear stitch diagrams and information about materials and techniques."
This is a very well done, beautiful book. The pages are thick glossy paper and all the pictures and graphs are full color. All the information you need to stitch these designs and create these projects is here.
In particular, the charts are so clear and spot-on that duplicating some of these incredible shading patterns would not be difficult.
This is a hardcover book published in 1992 by Henry Holt and Co. It has 127 pages.
This book is in Very Good condition, better then Very Good. The edges of the dust jacket are very slightly bent and the dust jacket corners show a little wear. The book inside is perfect.
