handmade beginning by Anna Maria Horner

Hello Friends,
I reviewed another book of  Anna Maria "Handmade Beginnings". This book talks and cover's about women stages from before and after pregnancy and welcoming the baby. There are some cute baby projects like the Patchwork Sack, Booties and Baby in the hood Jacket however other then that this book has nothing much different again. I think it is a more on the similar lines of her previous book however here she has concentrated on 24 projects on welcoming baby. I had expected a lot from this book however there are few projects that are easily available for free on the net. This book may serve good for expecting mother's  or grand mother's to have all baby projects in one place to sew and make it as gift. The book is a spiral bound with pattern pieces tucked in an envelope at the end. There are certail pattern error and correction can be found on Wiley.com.
