SUMMARY- I am really impressed with Ms. Lindsay's designs! The Green Hummingbird Sampler in particular is quite stunning. You get diagrams and written instructions - but the written instructions are not broken down at all(and the notation is all in lower case so it runs on and on and on, so it would be nearly impossible to find your place in them. I'm still breaking down and rewriting the pattern for the Fall Leaves. I've numbered the rings in ascending then descending order so that I can compare the instructions for inconsistencies - have already found a few. I'll figure out if they matter when I do a sample. Still worth every penny. I originally bought one of her booklets for the maple leaf pattern(see the story page for my Fall Cloak odyssey), but fell in love with all her designs - enough that I went and bought all the other books of hers I could find.
