| A Rainbow of Stitches features over 1,000 patterns for embroidery and cross stitch, arranged in color themes. Each color corresponds to a style (Green: bright, fresh, lively. Pink: sweet yet chic. Blue: timeless delights. White: a touch of elegance.). This provides for a variety of styles and themes, making this a great book for holiday gift ideas. In fact, I have already started on a few presents from the book! This book would make a much appreciated gift for the stitchers in your life. It’s not an edgy book, but a mix of modern and classic that has something for nearly everyone. The color scheme layout is easy to use and fun. The projects are a great jumping-off point for ways to use the patterns. There are no instructions for the projects, but they are beautifully photographed and meant to inspire. The book contains enough basic information about image transfer and basic stitches to get you started if you are a beginning stitcher. Overall, a great book that is nice to use and should keep you quite busy!
