My mom just picked up this book for me at a garage sale. It has step by step descriptions and illustrations on all the basic stitches used in embroidering, crocheting, knitting, macramé, rugmaking, sewing, and tatting. Now maybe I can properly learn how to crochet again! Oh, how I love these "how to do anything" books... They are such great references and teachers. Hey, maybe I'll even learn how to tat and make some lace this summer.
