One of the reasons I buy these books (besides making the actual projects, yay!) is for the feel-good of the visuals and the energy and inspiration I get from looking through them. While I do understand the intent of the "feel" of the projects in this book, the unrelenting similarity and overall effect is one-trick-pony. I love linen, burlap and muslin as much as the next creative, but an entire book of the same thing disappointed me.
I don't know if this was intentional or if I got one of a bad printing batch, but the entire book is dullish in color - similar to being monochromatic in feel even though there are plenty of other colors. Each page looks as though there was a greyish/brownish filter or wash applied to the photos. :( There's no perk, no spark, no "clean" colors - it's all...blah. With the name of "Sweet Tweets" I think I expected happiness, energy, light and airy. The photos and overall "feel" of this is blah. It could all be dramatically different (and as it deserves to be) by using a printer person with a good eye. I've been a graphic designer and digital designer since 1991 and can tell the difference. I've seen people, when using Photoshop or doing any image editing, go the lazy way and apply the same filter to every picture without paying attention to the detail that you can't do a blanket wash without tweaking each individual picture to bring out it's best. Without that extra attention to detail, a great disservice is done to what could have been, what should have been and what WOULD have been the perfectly delightful little book of charming projects it was meant to be. :D
The designs are really adorable, because the author uses interesting small-print fabrics for the applique pieces, then uses free-motion machine stitching to create tree trunks and limbs and to repeatedly outline each applique. The dark-thread stitching, when paired with the pastel fabrics, creates a great contrast. Because the author outlines the appliques several times each, the finished designs really do look quite a lot like they were "sketched."
