OK, I love cats and I love Needlepoint Cats books. I list 2 wonderful vintage cat needlepoint books, Martin Leman's Needlepoint Cats and William Brister's The Needlepoint Cat.....well, here's another. This is a 1998 book by British Author Julie Hasler.
Included are 35 feline designs with a wide range of cat breeds from Tabby to Exotics. Julie Hasler has a wonderful *eye* for cat moods and attitudes. These are great Cats. There are needlepoint cat framed miniatures, quite a few pillows, a bell pull, a cat and a butterfly watching each other, a Christmas stocking cat, a cat rug, a cat doorstop, Egyptian cats, sleeping cats, cat greeting cards, cat frames, cat trinket boxes, place mats, a cat key holder, and more. (35 CATS)
The back of the books says "All projects illustrated with beautiful color photographs, easy-to-follow charts and step-by-step working instructions".
All of the pictures are full color. The directions include materials needed and DMC Threads used by color number.
Published in the UK by David & Charles in 1988. This is a glossy cover hard bound book. It does not and never did have a dust jacket. It has 128 pages and a full index.
Needlepoint Cats is in excellent condition, there is the smallest bit of rubbing on the top and bottom of the outside spine. It is what I call "giftable". (is that a word?)
