Review of Blackwork Made Easy: Techniques, Patterns and Samplers
I'm so lucky - my nan got me this and some other bits for Easter! I adore this book. It has samplers in, and some little pictures that can be used in cards too if you're short on time. The samplers are bordering on huge, but it does tell you how many skeins of thread you need, which not many books do. If you want it, get it, it is beautiful.
