SUMMARY- This book was originally published in French. The designs are very basic, with a few employing beadwork. Instructions are in written notation and not broken down. The cover shows the beaded cushion, lavender sweet, frost flower, and crystal. as well as the miniature doily and curtain for a doll's house. Despite the lack of diagrams, this would be a great book for someone new to tatting who has a grasp of the basics and just needs practice. The projects are for the most part small and easy to finish. She ranks her patterns 1-3 for difficulty but doesn't really use any advanced techniques other than the inclusion of beads.
