Enhanced descriptions from Syndetics:

Christiane Bellstedt Myers has developed a beautiful collection of decorative makes using rustic fabrics and natural materials. The four chapters--Spring, Summer, Fall, and Winter--cover a wide range of crafts, including collage, embroidery, painting, and sewing, and take inspiration from Scandinavian seasonal traditions to bring magic to your year. Celebrate the coming of Spring with a lovely Clematis wreath, share the joy of Mid-Summer with your friends by setting the table outdoors using a handmade tablecloth, decorate your home for the Fall by bringing the harvest indoors, and make Winter a time for hygge by lighting plenty of candles and hanging some vintage chandelier crystals to capture the soft glow. Try out some simple embroidery on the lavender pillows, which would make great gifts, or make a pretty garland to hang on the mantelpiece at Christmas. So why not get the family involved and make each season really special by making decorations together? You can then relive those happy memories each year as you decorate your home.

Includes index.
