Book Review

I found this compilation of projects to be a really helpful how-to book on home decorating.  The ideas are quick and the instructions are user friendly, perfect for those who don't have a lot of time on their hands but love crafting and decorating.

An assortment of projects are available in the following sections (Chests and Cabinets, Tables, Quilts and Afghans, Painted Chairs, Pillows, Rugs, Holders, Accents, Curtains and Garden Things) to appeal to varying tastes and for different skill levels.  These projects incorporate a number of skills and techniques such as woodworking, sewing, decorative painting techniques, tiling, quilting, crocheting, stenciling, needlepoint, decoupage and etching.  There are both indoor and outdoor projects included.

Full-size patterns are provided with some of the projects, and assembly diagrams are included with the woodworking projects and other crafts when required (i.e. for Quilts).  The projects are displayed in real life situations so the reader can experience the beauty they might add to their own home setting.  Accompanying each project is a quick tip for you to read before you start, as well as interesting comments on the inspiration behind it. 
There are additional sections at the back to help you with completing your projects successfully such as terms, abbreviations, preparation, how to enlarge and trace patterns, making wooden cutouts, quilting basics, stenciling basics and where to buy your craft materials.
