Format: Paperback
These are just some of the words that will come to mind when you see the patterns in this book. Alice Starmore is a genius at bringing simple patterns to life with vivid colorways. Many of the patterns can be used for other projects or crafts, for example, using variagated yarns and converting a cushion to a sweater. There are patterns for all skill levels, from a bookmark to a rug. The photography is wonderful as well, and all of the items are placed in beautiful still-lifes. Alice Staremore's Celtic Needlepoint makes as nice a coffee-table book as pattern book. Highly recommended for lovers of fiber arts as well as Celtic arts.

This is Alice Starmore's first Needlepoint book, which shows her diversity of needle skills. As with all of other Alice's books there is, nothing skimped or overlooked.

This is not only an introduction to Needlepoint but also what makes it Celtic their history and culture. We are treated to a smorgasbord of color from great photographs of Irish landscapes to actual Needlepoint patterns in this oversized book

I am actually only interested in the patterns however; the projects that are presented in this book are of useful items such as a hexagonal knotwork cushion and a circular birds stool cover.

Even though there is a list of tools and yarns to use for these projects some being out of date, you will probably have good substitutes and your existing stash.

Aside from its practical value, this also makes a good coffee-table book.

This is the most thoughtfully laid out book of needlework I have ever seen--a friend and I wrestled for the only copy at a bookshop when it was between printings! Both the photos of Ireland and of the needlework "at home" are glorious. I've done a few of the designs and they've turned out wonderfully--my only caveat is that the graph colors can be difficult to distinguish, as is often the case with needlepoint charts, particularly British ones. Also, Appleton yarns can be hard to find in the U.S., but in these days of the internet, who cares? I'm confused by the other reviews as this is most definitely not a knitting book.

It's too bad that I couldn't have seen inside before I purchased this book. I was looking for more patterns that were like the one on the cover. When I received the book I realized that the cover pattern was probably the only one I would use.That's not to say that there weren't some nice patterns inside the book but they weren't what I was looking for. The cover is not representational of what else is in this book.
