'For over fifteen years, Allura Design has produced high quality cross-stitch kits to delight Australian needle-workers. Here is a collection of the best of those designs - a wonderful survey of the flowers, animals, buildings and scenes that sum up Australia. Included among many favourites is the immensely popular Allura Alphabet. There are also more than ten new designs for Allura enthusiasts.
Over 65 colour photographs portray the patterns clearly to help you interpret the charts. For those new to cross-stitch, there is a chapter on the basics of the craft. There are also full instructions for making up small gifts and decorative items.
All this is accompanied by a lively text which dips into aspects of our heritage, making Allura's Australia as much a book to browse through as to stitch by.'
