SUMMARY- This is Ms. Rizzo's stab at a beginner's book. She has some illustration to go with her instructions, but not nearly enough(in my opinion). There is a grainy black-and-white photo for each project. Learning to shuttle tat from a book isn't easy. I'd give this booklet a pass for that purpose. I do recommend all her other books. They are great for beginners, inexpensive and with motifs that work up quickly for fast rewards.
