SUMMARY- There are some really stunning patterns in this book. I especially love the wreath. Her photos are in color to show off her great use of color in her designs. Instructions are really well broken down and easy to follow. My only (minor)complaint is that photos are not with the instructions, so you have to do some flipping if you wish to reference the photo. The "How To" instructions are two pages, and don't have a huge amount of illustration, so if you're trying to teach yourself tatting, I wouldn't try from this booklet - but there are some great patterns here for the beginner.
