I bought this book because I wanted to make a HOOKED RUG... and I did! It was 2-1/2' x 4' and was originally planned for the den... but I ended up so happy with it that it went into the entryway by the front door! With four small kids, I couldn't work on it as much as I wanted, but eventually it was finished. I really couldn't believe it had made that big, heavy, beautiful thing! Everybody loved it and wanted me to make them one!
Forget that! I wanted to make a braided rug for my kitchen in front of the sink! So I bought braiding cones and all the double-knit remenants at my fabric stores and away I went! You rug-braiders know what happened next! But I had fun with my bright kitchen mat in front of the sink that I could just toss into the washer when needed!
Oh, the pages and pages of needlepoint stitches! I just had to make a sampler with my favorite saying in the softest of wonderful wool... and then the moths found it one year, hanging on the wall... I sure wish I had put it under glass!
I loved the way the book describes each tiny step in quilting, so that when I made my first wall-hanging (for the church craft sale), I felt confident that I could do it! And I did!
Now it's time to let someone else enjoy all the wonderful crafts in this book... from Applique to Macrame... and all between!
Excellent resource book with lots of photos to make learning easy! I got this book as a gift for a friend, but had an opportunity to review it before handing it off. I doubt if she will give it back to repost!
