American artist Joan Elliott has found inspiration in the colours and serenity of the Far East. Her wonderful designs have been skillfully adapted for cross stitching by American kit company Design Works Crafts. While some of the featured designs are already available as kits, many are exclusive to this book. Three of the most beautiful designs portray women in kimonos - Grace, Beauty and Wisdom - echoing the art of the Japanese print. While these may offer a challenge to the more experienced stitcher, there are plenty of smaller designs that offer inspiration to the beginner. The beautifully finished projects include a greetings card collection, pot lids, towel borders, scented sachet, a pillow, drawstring bag, and a silk-backed wall hanging.About the Author:
