Mary Engelbreit's cheerful designs have become almost ubiquitous, appearing on everything from greeting cards to home fabrics to clothing, and the 80-plus seasonal projects in this book are a happy extension of those colorful pick-me-ups. These designs cover the cross-stitch skill range, from 10-count perforated plastic ornaments and button covers to an embellished gardener's journal cover worked on 36-count linen. The tinted charts, instructions, and specialty-stitch diagrams smooth the creative process for those who want to use these patterns as a jumping-off point for their own whimsy.
