Or to be more accurate: books about cross-stitch. I havent made anything from these beautiful La Croix et La Maniere books yet, just looked at the pictures. I saw them on Linnet ages ago but the postage from Japan is too much, so I eventually ordered them direct from the author (Monique Lyonnet)! And she signed them for me too. I have some pale grey/blue linen which is going to be ideal for a small stitched object.... need to look at the pictures one more time before I decide.
