There are some really cute patterns and ideas in this book. I love the crocheted mouse family! The silhouette pillows are a great idea, too. There are lots of classics here and some new ideas that most of us have not seen before, even if you do lots of needleworking. There is definitely something in this book for everyone's tastes and skill level. Most of these projects are easily done by hand, too. It is nice to make something totally by hand once in a while without the help of our sewing machine.
