The beauty of both needlepoint and cross stitch is that they are worked on a canvas made up of a grid of squares, so—just like painting-by-numbers—it is virtually foolproof, and a great result is guaranteed. This book includes 20 charted designs for either needlepoint or cross stitch and more than 40 finished projects that incorporate the designs into a variety of stylish items. Reinventing the arts of needlepoint and cross stitch for today’s crafter, Cath has injected her own distinctive style of cheery, heartwarming prints into these traditional crafts. As a unique bonus, the book contains an exclusive stitching project for a zip-up purse. Guaranteed to have Cath fans and crafters everywhere stocking up on tapestry yarns and embroidery silks, this book will inspire them to get stitching.
