Book in very good condition, small nick to dust jacket

From the cover:
"Inspired by images of happy days at the seaside and in the countryside, Chris Timms's designs have all the charm of a more innocent, less worldly age. Looking back with nostalgia to those seemingly carefree days at the turn of the century, the projects feature summer and Christmas holiday themes, with children at play on the beach and in the snow, farmyard animals and wild flowers.

The book contains some larger projects, such as cushions, samplers and pictures, to appeal to more experienced needlewomen, but there are also plenty of attractive and useful small items — bookmarks, greeting cards and paperweights — which beginners can undertake with confidence.

Most of the designs can be worked in either needlepoint or cross stitch, and each is accompanied by a colour photograph of the finished object and a stitch chart, along with clear, easy-to-follow making-up instructions.

Chris Timms has based the colours of her projects on yarns and threads manufactured by DMC; each colour is identified by its shade number and also by a standard colour name which can be used to match yarns of other manufacturers. Kits are available for a selection of the projects."
