I look forward to make some of my own, starting with one of the small ones. 2 people found this helpful. The designs featured in this book are medieval and old-world Folk-Art designs. The patterns are easy to read, and although the charts are in black and white, due to the graphic nature of the patterns they are easy to read and follow. The book starts out with a variety of pictures of samplers, followed by 4 pages of small sampler motives, so the reader can design his or her own sampler.

Over the centuries, the spectacular landscape of Iceland, and the history it has imposed on its people, have given rise to the unique artistic and needlecraft heritage which has provided the inspiration for this book - a collection of more than 40 needlepoint designs. They include borders and flowers, repeating patterns and sampler motifs, stars and geometrics, traditional symbols, intrepid knights and mythical beasts. Large-scale charts are provided for the designs, which have been photographed to show every detail. They are worked simply and quickly in cross stitch without the use of a cumbersome frame, and the finished embroideries can be used in a variety of ways. Suggestions are given throughout, with instructions for making up into cushions, wall hangings and framed pictures.

Babykins is trying to decide which beautiful pattern will be the first. So many choices, and so much variety! Good stuff!

The designs featured in this book are medieval and old-world Folk-Art designs. The patterns are easy to read, and although the charts are in black and white, due to the graphic nature of the patterns they are easy to read and follow. The book starts out with a variety of pictures of samplers, followed by 4 pages of small sampler motives, so the reader can design his or her own sampler. Towards the end of the book a medieval tapestry pattern is offered with the same concept for DIY design. The patterns also include an Icelandic star and a blue and white tapestry, inspired by a horse cover for a lady's side saddle. Overall the book holds what it promises, but would be better if it would include better photography of finished needlework projects, instead of just showing tiles of the work. It is a good book for a very specific audience and taste, and certainly worth a look.

The book is beautiful and I hope it will bey very useful as well. I am looking forward using it and will start with sewing the Icelandic star in blue. The item I got is used and signed by the author and it should be an good inspiration also because it is signed the 11th jun 1999 on my grandmothers birthday. I wonder where this book will take me, it is filled with unexpected adventures.

Fabulos! Better as expected.
Book is excellent. Range of traditional patterns that are very hard to access. Book is second hand but in excellent condition.
