Postcard Reviews

Diary in Stitches is a beautiful and inspiring book. 65 motifs which are simple and delightful can be used to adorn your projects. 6 projects are included and with the easy to follow instructions there will be no problem for even a beginner to create something wonderful.

I loved the template pages and the designs are just stunning. Small and pretty, using appliqué and embroidery, the simple art of sewing is showcased and beautifully presented in this amazing book.

This is a book that would make a wonderful gift, it is filled with a range of designs that can be used as they are or as a collage of thread and colourful fabric. I just love it.
