Monograms and initials as well as plain needlework all make their first series appearances in this volume. The section on monograms and initials covers techniques for applique, embroidery, and cross-stitch, and provides two full cross-stitch alphabets for monogramming. The plain needlework section includes sewing buttons and buttonholes, hemming, piping, pleating, fancy lettering, and a variety of stitch variations. For crocheters the book features doll clothes, bedspreads, and shawls and jackets for ladies, and for knitters there are a number of garments for children including gloves, hoods, baby booties and stockings. More fascinating displays of Mountmellick embroidery complete this volume along with some intriguing crêpe paper projects.
