Inspirational ideas from all over the work have been combined in this book by nine respected artists and designers. From the Orient, there is a detailed Chinese dragon and good fortune emblems. From the West there are cherubs and angels and from the world of myths comes Merlin, as well as an enchanting unicorn. The final chapter features all the signs of the zodiac to be made up individually as cards or gift bags - or as one large sampler. Projects all have clear making up instructions and the full colour charts for all the cross stitch designs should help beginners and experienced stitchers alike. The contributors are: Saifhon Borisuthipandit; Sue Cook; Maria Diaz; Linda and Roger Garland; Susan Penny; Rungrat Puthikul; Mary Stockett; and Teresa Wentzler.
