Description:

Julia Jones knows how to create your own 

contemporary needlecraft heirlooms, 

using traditional skills and appropriate modern materials. 

She includes 20 projects featuring a 

wide variety of methods, 

from cross-stitched monogrammed 

towels for a first home, 

to a fine lawn christening gown with 

lace and pin-tucks. 

For the nursery there is a characterful,

 jointed mohair teddy and embroidered hobby horse. 

There are also many wonderful ideas 

for gifts to decorate the home, 

such as the Durham quilted cushion, Christmas sampler, 

silver Ruskin-work tablecloth and golden panel 

of embroidered roses.

Other projects include a Crocheted Lace Summer Bonnet in Fine Cotton ... 

Crocheted Bonnet in Fine Silk ... Patchwork Photograph album Cover ... 

Cross Stitch Mursery Picture ... Cutwork Cherry Tablecloth and Napkins ... 

Square Dance Quilt ... Lace Garter ... Silk Knitted and Beaded Purse ... 

Bed Throw ... Embroidered Ring Box ... Spring Posy Footstool ... 

Christmas Tree Decorations ... and a Christmas Travelcloth.

All the projects are well within the reach of the keen needleworker, 

and many are suitable for beginners -- 

with clear guides to indicate the level of skill required. 

Easy-to-follow instructions, 

charts and patterns are accompanied by 

full-colour photo of the completed project 

and advice on ways of personalising the gifts.
