Some time ago, I was asked to do a review on my blog of this book you see below. It is called Two Hour Cross Stitch - Flowers 300 quick and easy designs by Trice Boerens.
Here is the blurb on the back:
"If you have limited time for crafting, Two - Hour Cross-Stitch: Flowers is the perfect book for you. It's brimming with 300 classic, vintage and retro-inspired blossoms that are not only beautiful, but also quick and easy to stitch. The colourful motifs are shown finished and are accompanied by a chart and a list of suggested colours. Perfect for stitching on the go, these flowers are sure to shine on any project you design."
It is a sturdy paperback book with full colour charts inside. The instructions are very limited which suggests it is aimed at people who already know how to stitch but because of the simplicity of each design, this book would be suitable for the beginner. Each design has been stitched and is photographed alongside each chart. The colours in the list are DMC.
I think each design would be great to use for smalls like pinkeeps and scissor fobs and such like and would make lovely RAK gifts. There is potential to collate them together and make into a bigger sampler as well if you are the creative type.
I am offering this book as a giveaway to one of my followers. If you like the look of it and think you might use it then please make a comment below. This is open to all my followers - wherever you are in the world. I will pull a name out of the hat on Sunday 6th May.
Thanks for reading! Look out for another giveaway very soon. A full kit from Yiota's Cross Stitch!
