    This is the most delightful book! Although there are a few translation issues for those of us English speakers in the instructions, it wasn’t too difficult to figure out. Although experienced in embroidery, at first I was overwhelmed with the projects. Sforza’s detailed instructions made the steps easy to follow. My first sample from her book turned out lovely! Surprisingly, it only took a few days. The color selections are a delight. I highly recommend this book offering one of the few detailed instructionals on beautiful seashell and starfish embroidery. Wonderful.
