THE book of cross stitch! This is 200 pages plus of cross stitch and sampler heaven. It is a hardback in very good condition. it is also mighty heavy and the high overseas prices reflect the carriage costs, I'm afraid.
In this book you will coloured illustrations, charts and images of samplers on every page - it is choco-bloc.
Cahrts are culled from diverse sources, including the famous Sajou pattern books.
There is huge repertoire of decorative alphabets of varying sizes
as well as charts for figures, buildings, landscapes, small children and animals...
Floral garlands and bunches also have their own section
And I can't finish without showing you this lovely sampler composed of the pattern pages of a little paper leporello translated onto linen - a great project to try out.
