I haven't done any of the designs yet but they look really simple. I don't mind the blocks instead of the charts.

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Indian Designs Feb. 24 2005
By Lori Cyr - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is one of my absolute favorite cross stitching books. I have always loved Indian arts, and this book did not dissappoint me. The charts are beautiful, and there is a wonderful variety of projects, large and small. I feel it was worth every penny I spent for it. You can make beautiful, small keepsakes and gifts or you can make intricate samplers, pictures, pillow covers, keychains, purses, and wall hangings. Some projects are relatively quick to make, and others take longer. I absolutely love the floral and paisley motifs. There are some other projects that require beading, but they are very beautiful. The only thing I found a little cumbersome is the threads are listed as Anchor only, and I only have access to DMC threads where I live. Also, the color conversion chart at the end of the book does not list all of the colors used. Some of the Anchor threads do not have a DMC equivalent, so I ordered a few colors online. If you aren't very picky like I am, you might be satisfied to just look at the pictures and choose a color that is close to the picture. The author did a wonderful job with this compilation of Indian art as cross stitch. She borrowed designs from Indian archetecture, metal work, pottery, rugs, and clothing. This is by far one of my favorite cross stitch books.

4.0 out of 5 stars India cross-stitch design book review Oct. 9 2007
By C. Carey - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
There are several designs in this book that I would like to make. The charts are a little small, and the colours are so similar that it is sometimes hard to see the contrast. I changed lots of the colours but I love the basic designs. Projects of different sizes for every taste.
5.0 out of 5 stars Exactly What I Wanted! July 30 2011
By Heather D. Maliakal - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
I have had this book for 4 years now and have made several of the designs. I LOVE THEM! My Husband is from India, so I was excited to show him what I had found, he even liked many of the patterns!

The patterns are easy to read and very clear in their instruction. I'm not an "advanced" stitcher, with that said, I've had no problems with the patterns. I've substituted some colors, but that's easy :)

Would I recommend this book...You bet I would!

By Ahlam Al Sharekh - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Although it seems intersting but I didn't find that much project to feed my hunger.
the floss colors are in Anchor & when converted to DMC you will not find all the color
I'll start on the Indian elephant project, see you soon.
3.0 out of 5 stars very beautiful, for the advanced stitcher July 29 2007
By Laura Cluff - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I had high hopes for this book, and it delivered some. The designs are beautiful, but most of them quite large and for the very advanced stitcher. If you have a love for India and lots of time on your hands, this one is for you!
