Helene Le Berre has given us 14 alphabets to cross stitch, and the inscription on the preface is just perfect.

Visually they are just beautiful. Delicate and pretty, they can be added to many of your projects or make stunning samplers to be kept as heirlooms or given as gifts.

Set into sections of Animals, Plants and Flora, the accompanying writings are interesting and informative. I loved that recipes have been included, a mushroom risotto and a very delicious carrot cake, along with the many projects that can be easily completed by all levels of sewists.
