One of the frustrations about my beloved cross stitch is that it takes so long to create anything of a decent size. In this book Jacqui takes the leap and scales the work up to the territory of quick wins with big stitches.
Her designs are bold and simple, with a contemporary feel that will make you keen to have a go.
Filled with simple instructions and big pictures, this book is an easy-to-use project book for stitchers at any level. The designs could always be scaled down to make mini versions for people who are just beginning to stitch and maybe overwhelmed with the size of fabric, so there’s lots of scope.
If you want some quick satisfaction in producing contemporary stitchy items, this book is worth a look.
