* Beautiful Cross Stitch

Posted on March 13th, 2004 by maitreya. Filed under Crafty Review.

I forgot to decline my Crafter’s Choice Book of the Month last month and inadvertantly ordered Better Homes and Gardens Beautiful Cross Stitch. I was going to send it back, but it turns out that it’s a pretty nice book, so I kept it. Most of the book is small patterns grouped haphazardly into samplers. It has lots of nice photos, which to me is key in any craft book. I like a lot of the more stylized florals, and some of the holiday patterns. I have yet to find a cross stitch book that is made up entirely of patterns I like and this is no exception, with whole chapters of disposable patterns. I will probably work some of them, though, so that makes the book worth it.

  • This recipe with white beans is probably my favorite farro salad yet. The creamy beans play a huge role in that, along with the sweet tender leeks and fresh parsley. But it's the chunks of salty, citrusy preserved lemon, a condiment often used in Moroccan cooking, that really takes this salad to the next level.
