SUMMARY- I've used this book a lot - especially the Oriental Christmas Tree pattern with beads added on the free picots for "Ornaments". I get a lot of requests for this tree ornament. I've also made up a lot of the different snowflakes and have never had a problem following any of the patterns. You can see from the table of contents that there is a huge variety of patterns here! I bought this book just last year from Handy Hands, and Barbara Foster included instructions for Angel #2 re-written for needle tatting as a free bonus to go with the book!
