No one knows how to create a beautiful home better then the editors of Victoria magazine. In From Heart & Hand they have gathered together their favorite craft ideas - ideas that transform ordinary into charming, run-of-the-mill into unique, & functional into beautiful. Some of the crafts are traditional -- drying flowers, needlepoint & embroidery. Some are unusual -- a beautiful pin made of old buttons, a sling chair upholstered in crewel, a floor cloth stenciled with a lace design. A special feature of the book includes a look back at the crafts of yesteryear like crafting paper dolls, preserving sea ferns, & creating commonplace books. Crafts that are exuberantly decorative are prominently featured. Picture frames are embellished with exquisite seashells, lampshades are covered with gaily-decorated cloth, & pantry shelves are dressed with crisp lace edging. With more than 150 glorious color photographs, step-by-step illustrations, & clear, concise directions that take the mystery out of even the most complicated ideas, From Heart & Hand celebrates the personal handcrafted touch that comes from the heart as well as the hand.
