However, this book helped me a great deal, because I have been able to plan my own samplers thanks to what I would call, "traditional sampler motifs and patterns" with a slightly modern twist. Here I am in 2011, planning what I will be stitching to be hung in my bedroom and my living room with help from a book (similar to the top-bottom "mismatch" books I loved as a child) that shows me what my great-great-great grandmothers would have been stitching in 1811 or 1911. (My paternal grandmother had an enormous amount of DMC products, including a box of either tatting or lace-making thread that dated back to 1921, which was about the time she married my paternal grandfather.)
The book makes it easy to match motifs with alphabets, allowing for greater ease of sampler pattern (or border, or use of alphabet) creation. I've been creating patterns like mad, and I have a great deal of stitching to catch up with when I am no longer so anxious or frustrated!
Pc Stitch 9.0 I use PCStitch Pro 9.0; which gives me upgrades to the software. I had to install it on a new laptop and I was happy to allow my software to be upgraded, debugged, and "pumped up" to PCStitch Pro 9.1--Using this software makes custom pattern creation with books like this a great deal easier than doing everything by hand.
Each page is cut into two parts, the top has designs and patterns for every occasion. At the bottom brings alphabet, so you can combine them with the reasons for the above pages and decide which can combine with each other.
The designs of the villas are very beautiful, if you like embroidery frame houses, you will like this book very much.
The alphabets are beautiful, also in each shows the font size and brings photos and embroidery designs for better detail.
