    This has needlepoint and cross stitch patterns based on some museum collection I've never heard of. The museum must have lots of boring old Victorian floral stuff, because most that what most of the patterns are. I got this book because it had two really cute patterns. Funny-both of them are "brick covers". Apparently women used to have bricks sitting around their homes and they'd embroider covers for them. The book says I can use a brick as a door stop or paperweight. What the...? I'm going to use the patterns, but not to wrap up cement blocks.One amusing pattern straight from the Georgia O'Keefe School of Embroidery: "Luscious Fruits". It features a large vagina, surrounded by pears, grapes and cherries. It calls it "a ripe melon". Sure.
