Following her "Beatrix Potter Knitting Book", designer Pat Menchini has compiled a collection of needlecraft items for the home ranging from small embroidered designs on cushions and mats to large tapestry patterns for chair coverings curtains or rugs. All the patterns are inspired by Beatrix Potter's watercolours, making particular use of the exquisite flower and nature paintings now becoming known through the Beatrix Potter "Country World" range of adult gift stationery and textiles. The book features colour photographs of the designs in appropriate settings. As well as easy to follow charts and diagrams and clear instruction, there are simple patterns for the beginner as well as more challenging ideas for the expert, and as a bonus the author includes suggestions for how each design can be adapted to suit different objects according to the readers own furnishings or requirements.
