"Bring the 750+ hand-drawn motifs in this must-have collection to life with colorful embroidery." —Better Homes & Gardens Make It Yourself Magazine "Sarah's latest triumph is the beautiful book, Pen to Thread. In it, she shares a huge array of motifs you can incorporate into your cross stitch projects. There are plenty of themes to choose from, including 'In the Garden' and 'By the Sea', but as you might expect, our favourite is 'Craft Room', with dinky jars of buttons and packets of pins." —Cross-Stitch Collection Magazine "A tremendous resource for your stitching library." —Creative Machine Embroidery
