There are five different sections; bags and purses, for children, pillows and throws (including the gorgeous cushion below), for the home and gifts and accessories. There is some (very) simple cross stitch, some sashiko, applique and lots of pretty hand embroidery.
My only critism is that as an embroidery nerd I would have liked some photos of the tradition needlecrafts that inspired some of the projects in the book, for example the author includes a design based on traditional Hungarian embroidery so it would have been lovely to see an example of a traditional embroidery piece.
I would love to know if any of you have this book, and what you think about it. What's your favourite craft book at the moment?
