Have a library of quirky gems from Michael Powell to hand with this new book from Search Press. This is one of the Twenty to Make series so this smashing little booklet contains mini cross stitch designs that distil Michael's distinctive and contemporary style. As fans of Michael Powell's design would expect, there are hearts, fairytale buildings and flowers with no straight lines anywhere! There is plenty of inspiration for all occasions throughout the year for cards, small pictures and other ideas. The charts are colour-and-symbol combinations and of a very good size for an almost pocket-sized book. There are no fractional stitches and the detail in Michael's designs come from the intricate back stitch.-New Stitches This book is part of the Twenty To Make series. It's a quirky new take on cross stitch influenced by a love of architecture, buildings and gardens. The twenty unique, contemporary designs are shown with charts to work. There is a brief stitching guide. I love the birthday cake, daises and village. The latter and a couple of other designs remind me of the architect Gaudi. All the designs are worked as mini designs, so they are relatively quick to make. Great little book.-Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts A great little book, even those who are new to cross stitch will be able to accomplish all of the projects. There's notes on fabric preparation and washing instructions too.-Craft Focus
