Booklist Review

The need to soften the machine-hard edges of our lives today is evidenced in part by the return to handmade arts and crafts--but with a difference. Simply because time has become a valuable commodity, the stitchery must be easy to master, look professionally crafted, and, simultaneously, not take months or years to complete. Filet crochet satisfies all three requirements. The more than 100 designs chosen by Rankin are of European origin, with simple and elegant geometric and figural motifs. No prior knowledge is necessary; the instructions, charts, and photographs explain all rudimentary and advanced techniques. A touch of lace added to shelves, pillows, coverlets, blankets, linens, lingerie, and apparel can make a lovely difference. Index. --Barbara Jacobs
