Ray's stitch dictionary, included in her other book as well, is easy to follow. The projects are small and cute!

This is my favorite Aimee Ray Doodlestitching book. The projects are cute enough for a child or young woman. I especially liked the Hanging Lantern stumpwork project, a dimensional embroidery project of hanging lanterns displayed in a decorated embroidery hoop (there are tons of these in the book Hoop-La). I also love the Merry Mushroom Pincushion from the cover, a cute little felt and embroidery project. In the same section as these two projects is an introduction to cutwork using the buttonhole and overcast stitch and a felt cutwork bookmark that's really cute. The downside is that there is no CD with this book so you'll have to scan or photocopy the templates and enlarge them to use them.

Again a very lovely book to look at, very cute pictures. But none of them spoke to me.

Clear directions and nice project photos. Makes me want to try enhancing some of my daughters clothes with the Shisha stitch.
