Doesn't the cover of this book just make you feel happy. All of the projects in this book give a similar effect. The projects are suitable for beginners right through to more advanced. With twenty different project to work on there will be something to keep you occupied. I love the colour theme all the way through the book but I could also imagine in a colour scheme that would match my decor. The book is full of inspirational projects that would make brilliant presents as well as items for your own house. Each of the patterns are clearly explained and pictures are supplied where needed.
