SUMMARY- You get great photography and useful photos. Instructions are in Japanese, but you get diagrams of all the patterns, making Ms. Fujishige's book a great find for anyone no matter their nationality. There are some really striking pieces in this book that got me thinking "yeah, I would love to wear that!" The table of contents doesn't really give you much of a clue to the pattern contents, but you get patterns for a set of coasters, scarf, evening bag, (20) simple edgings, three 3D brooches, butterfly motifs, a little girl's vest, wedding set(veil, bouquet, (2)ring pillows), (4)Doilies, and (2)linen center doilies, an orange slice motif, (3) striking medallions, (3)Christmas linen center doilies, 3D Christmas Tree and (2)Christmas brooches. This is the Fujishige book I don't have, so I was thrilled when Carolyn let me borrow her copy to review(Thank You!). Now I've just got to find one for the collection!
