Good illustrations of the basic stitches for beginners, and plenty of stitches I had never seen or tried.

The projects weren't very cute, but the 40 pages of stitches were interesting, many I've never seen before and I have a lot of embroidery books.

This book is a compilation of different designers from the web. It contains a wide range of projects (greeting cards, Kindle case, iPhone case, hoop art, etc.) which are mostly all cute / whimsical. I was impressed at how many stitches it wants to teach you - it contains instructions over over 60 embroidery stitches, and then has several stitches that are more unique to crewelwork and ribbon embroidery.

Lovely little book. Lots of techniques explained in an easy-to-follow in a well laid-out, pretty book. Some patterns included. Some designs rather dated/old-school if that's your thing.
