This is a nice little book. There are 26 patchwork projects included. The patterns were nice and the objects functional. They were the sort of things that are commonly shown inthis sort of book.

I thought I would be most likely to make the house slippers. The book included a resource list at the back which was nice.

I am going to buy this little book. It is so well done...the pictures are beautiful, the notes about her grandmother are so touching. I remembered Suzuko Koseki is Japanese and all of the things they made are Japanese. The room shoes will be my first project.

It's not a good sign when I can go through a craft or quilt book in 5 minutes. I was struck by very few of the projects, and those I did glance at, I could find in other books with what I consider to be better instructions. I said of her last book that I didn't like the patterns/instructions being separate from the photos of the projects, and that holds true of this book as well. I think I simply do not have the same style as this author.
