Between them, Christine  Leech and Lucinda Ganderton have compiled a really nice set of projects for around the home that you’re bound to like. It doesn’t hurt that each design features really nice Liberty patterns.

There’s some simple instructions at the start of the book and each design comes with big photos and clear instructions. It couldn’t get much simpler. What I really like is that these designs are a bit different to the norm. From cloud cushions to graffiti table runners, there are some nice fresh ideas, executed with style.
