A wonderful embroidery book featuring a rare form of needlework. The instructions are thorough and easy to understand. I believe this form of embroidery would be enjoyable for either an intermediate "crafter" or someone who has embroidery experience. It's great that there are handiwork books that can give you a challenge and provide room for personal growth.
