"Lovely book" -

Delightful and different cross stitch items and patterns with a very French feel. If you are a beginner with no experience of construction, threads and cloth, then I guess this book would be one to look at rather than make from. I was pleased with the book - it triggered ideas as well as offering patterns to decorate made items.

"Charts only" -

This is a lovely book to look at with nice photos but really is only useful as a book of charts and I had hoped for more instructions on how to make the items in the photographed pages (the first half of the book). The individual instructions only give you the thread colours and there is no advice on which type of material to cross stitch onto or how to finish the item (e.g. one photograph displays badges with cross stitch motif so the instructions are the chart for the motif and then "make into a badge" so unless you already know how to do that then you'll need to find those instruction elsewhere). So, nice book to have and nice charts to follow but not so good if you're hoping for comprehensive instructions in how to make the items photographed.
