Better Homes And Gardens America's Best Cross Stitch
March 22, 2020 at 8:08:26 PM
 
I got this book as a birthday present years ago and it is now on a prized shelf in my cross stitch library. I has a lot of floral patterns, borders, samplers, and articles, and the charts are clear and easy to read with symbols and sometimes colors, if needed. A notable section is the one that has a history of antique samplers and how cross stitch started, and they have turned three antique samplers into stitchable patterns. At the end, there are instrutions on stitching, fabric counts, finishing, and material. Most of the patterns use DMC and Anchor floss. This is a good basic book, pretty general in terms of designs, it has mostly traditional ones. But they are very nice. Smiley

Secoya,
Oooh, thanks for the recommendation! Kiss It sounds like an amazing book. I truly believe one can never be too rich, too thin or have too many pattern books! Wink
