I liked the book but I thought it would have small letter alphabets, so I was a little disappointed. Otherwise, I think I will get many years of use out of it.

I think this is an excellent book! The letters are beautifully rendered, the charts are big and clear, and the letter styles are great for everything from fun kids' projects to sophisticated ones for the fashionistas and home decor buffs on your gift list. Frame a single letter, mount one on a premade pillow or apron, or stitch it as an ornament, and you've got a beautiful personal gift that took only a few hours to make.

This is exactly what I've been needing. I do a lot of cross stitch as gifts and for church activities and the alphabets will help so much. They are beautiful!

There are so many ways you can use alphabets in your cross stitch projects. With this book, you will never have to hunt for a different alphabet style to use. There are nine different ones listed from elegant and exquisite styles to fun and funky and finally clean and classic. Use them on anything you want to have letters. The projects they show with each alphabet has a skill level, materials needed, stitch count and design size. Each also has a green box called "Make it your Own"┬Ł that gives a suggestion of other ideas and projects. The charts, done in black and white, are clear and large enough for older eyes to see. There is a section all about how to stitch. It contains how to do the stitches and talks about fabrics, needles, floss and how to work from a chart. The final section is finishing instructions for the projects given. I can't wait to pick up my needles and create my next project.
