I LOVE this book! Review by Kalen Reichert

I'm not even a 'pets' kinda person but I bought this book because my daughter and nieces LOVE all animals, especially dogs and it's a fun way to indulge my love of embroidery while also showing love for my family by taking the time to make something special for someone. This book is filled with cute ideas, designs and projects. I want to complete each one! I only wish that Interweave could offer more books by this talented designer.
