Amazon.com Amazon.com Review (ISBN 0895776219, Hardcover)

One of the simplest embroidery techniques to master, cross-stitch is a very versatile method of counted thread work that lends itself equally well to simple decorative motifs, bold abstract designs, or intricately detailed patterns. With a thorough roundup of basic tools and techniques (including many variations) and a 20-page section charting dozens of easy motifs, the volume is an ideal crash course for the beginner or novice. But there's far more here--24 projects, all accompanied by complete step-by-step instructions, materials lists, line drawings, and color photos that offer ample temptation for the more experienced stitcher. In addition to a slew of projects featuring traditional cross-stitch, there are also full directions and projects for other counted thread techniques: pattern darning, blackwork, pulled work, hardanger, and drawn thread work. Projects include pictures, pillows, towels, curtains, a tote bag, and a lampshade. The pieces have a lovely old-fashioned look that wisely avoids the cutesiness often prevalent in the medium. --Amy Handy
