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...
