Cross Stitch Book - I'm in love...

Have you seen this book yet?
I subscribe to the U.K. magazine, Cross Stitcher, and in this month's issue, I noticed a small write-up about this book. I decided to take a chance and see if I could get a copy through Amazon (I didn't want to have to pay U.K. rates or international shipping costs). Well, Amazon itself didn't carry it, but the Amazon Marketplace did AND the sellers were located in the U.S. It was $20 (with shipping, the total was $24) and I've wasted 20 bucks on much less, so...I ordered it.

It arrived yesterday and I have been in heaven ever since!
There is plenty of cross stitch and embroidery patterns. Lots of small motifs (which I'm always looking for). Great ideas for upcoming exchanges and quick gift ideas. The book is divided into three sections (red, white and blue) and the themes cover holidays, seaside, country, hearts, flowers, children, sewing, fairies, animals, etc. The list goes on.
I've been thinking about Christmas ornaments for this year, and I've already picked out the pattern I will be using.
If you end up getting this book, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do. Happy sewing!

This book looks really cool--I find that some of my favorite craft books are not based in the US. One of my favorites is a sewing book from Japan.
