Mary Legallet is a well known stitcher, teacher and author of the blog, Mary’s Whimsical Stitches. She posts a stitch every Wednesday and has gathered her past stitches into a wonderful book. The book is organized into Essential Stitches, Balanced Stitches, Borders, Diagonal Stitches, Layered Stitches, Oblique Stitches, Small Stitches, Straight Stitches. They are numbered and/or lettered.
The book has 287 pages, is wirebound and measures 6 x 8-1/2″. There’s also a decorative stitch index so if you’re looking for something for your bird for example, she might recommend a 3 x 3 grid with beads.
