Indeed, anyone interested in any form of needlework will be totally captivated by her deviously ingenious textural designs and can benefit from the wealth of creative ideas arising from her magic manipulations.

Although, much of work she created in simple calico known as muslin in the USA, her elegant ideas and natty notions may be adapted for any type of fabric. You can make quilts, wallhangings, boxes, baskets, cushions, table linen, fashion garments and accessories with her ideas and tips.
