SUMMARY- Pattern instructions are in modern notation and broken down so that they are easy to read. Her diagrams are well detailed and her instructions for adding beads are clear. I highly recommend any of Ms. Peel's work. The color photographs are the inside and out of the front and back covers. Her designs are appealing and usually pretty easy to work. This isn't a bad book for someone new at adding beads to have on their shelf - it's just hard to find now. Ms. Peel is quite talented and publishes superior easy-to-use books. They are getting harder to find now, so if you run across one, I'd snag it. I was really fortunate that Anitra had the two books I haven't been able to find so that I could complete the reviews of her books!
