Once again these ladies have done a beautiful job. There are so many wonderfully inspiring projects in this book, but the best part is that you can pretty much get started straight away. You're not overloaded with pretty pictures and projects but feeling the dread or intimidation often felt with other books in this genre. Not only can you begin them quickly you feel encouraged the whole way through, almost as if Emma and Elsie are right there crafting with you! Well done ladies.
