Make incredible personalised gifts for friends and family with this collection of over 100 letter and number charts. All the charts can be used for aida and canvas using embroidery thread and yarn for very different results. Felicity has selected three different fonts for the letters and numbers including the very popular circus font; a woodblock font and a screen print font, which pick up on current trends. As well as the alphabet numbers there are decorative end posts to break up number sequences and handy charts for ampersands, stars and hearts. She has also designed decorative borders for each of the alphabets to finish the designs beautifully. The letters and numbers can be combined to create names, words or initials as well as significant dates and times, to make special gifts for birthdays, weddings and anniversaries. Includes full colour cross stitch charts, colour charts and stitch guide information. Also includes beautiful styled photography and instructions for potential projects to inspire you to create your own very special cross stitched keepsakes.
