When surfing amazon for stitchery books, how could I resist one that boasts a butcher pig on the cover as did Twisted Stitches. Or a book of tiny stitches that proclaims Not Lame! and Very Cool! Like Makoto's Cross-Stitch Super Collection.
When I got home from vacation I had these two very fun books waiting on my table for me to open and browse. And I've already picked out the first patterns I'm going to do out of each one of them!
