Review by satyridae
Another rummage sale find. I'm always a sucker for any sort of beading book. This is a Christmas book and I don't decorate for Christmas but still, I saw it and had to have it. There is a nice range of projects here, from the truly simple to the moderately complex. The photos are lovely but I didn't think the instructions were the clearest I'd ever seen- though it can be hard to tell from just reading the instructions while not actually attempting to do the projects.
