This book has some wonderful charts. I especially liked the two that had teacups, and the two cat charts that make a tea cozy. I am going to stitch these, then stuff them as a small pocket toy for my little grand-daughter.
All charts are in black-and-white, and you need a good light to read them. I had to scan a chart to enlarge it. Also that way I could make marks on the chart without harming the original.
Most charts are for stitchers with some experience, but a few were not complicated to do...

Great patterns and projects!
Very nice projects that can be used for small items such as clothing or handkerchiefs and also many that can be used for larger projects such as wall hangings and rugs. There are also some that would look great combined with others so you can really use your imagination with this one!
