    Author Information
    Sharon Welch leant to knit when she was four years old, and she grew up in a wonderfully creative environment. Years later, she was inspired to send one of her designs to Bella magazine, which lead to projects being published, and then she was told she should consider writing a book. As a result, she wrote three books on knitted toys, cross stitch and soft toys, and later when on to design needlecraft projects for magazines and DMC. Karen loves stitching and is an enthusiastic designer, and has written many articles since the early years. Sharon lives in Devon.
    Review quote
    This is such a cute colourful book full of fun and quirky charm, it's a must-have for cross stitch fans. It's a book full of cross stitch motifs, but with a cute childish feel to them. There are bunnies and diggers, tractors and teddy bears. If you want to cross stitch for children it would be a perfect book for you, but also if you are into the cute kawaii look you'll love it too. Motifs are useful to embellish cards and children's blankets. You can get special aida which you sew on to another fabric while you cross stitch which then dissolves in water. There are twelve introductory pages before the motifs on: stitches, framing, using the charts, sizing your design and preparing the fabric. Sharon has published several books and been in lots of magazines. She knits, sews and felts as well as cross stiches so she is a very adept craft teacher.-sewingisforgirls.blogspot.com This reference book for cross stitch is just as useful for machine knitting, especially intarsia. It brims with motifs for mini projects, samplers and gifts. The full colour charts are grouped into popular themes, offering ideas for all occasions. Cross stitch beginners have all they need to create something special and those more experienced will love the wonderful variety.-Machine Knitting Monthly
