SUMMARY- There are a lot of lovely projects packed into this book, and a lot of different disciplines are covered. I like that kind of potpourri approach, so this is usually a great find for me. You get color photos of all the projects, though it's hard to see detail in many of them since they are typically being worn or used in some way to prevent a clean visual. They did not give any of the designers' names. Project photo and instructions are in different parts of the book, and the instructions have little to no illustration.

The tatting patterns consist of a modest daisy motif that is used for a 3D bouquet and as a tile for a doily.
