Robin's new book "Snow Happy" is beautifully written and laid out. So many different and exciting projects with excellent instructions. Truly something for everyone from seasoned stitcher to beginner. I especially appreciate her "Tips" throughout the book! Robin's darling designs will keep you smiling while you stitch.
If you love stitching, you are going to love this book. If you haven't started stitching yet this book is a great, fun way to get started. Robin has written excellent project instructions with detailed stitching diagrams and tutorials. Blue work adds a wonderful crisp feeling to her whimsical snowy scenes. Beautiful photography showing finished projects as well as assembly steps make this book user friendly for both beginning and seasoned stitchers. A variety of darling snow people add to the fun of creating items for your home or gifts for those special friends. A must have for my library!
Robin brings her love of snowmen and whimsy to life in this book. The projects range from super fast and simple like the bookmark and ornaments to more detailed like the quilt. The photos and instructions are excellent. It is a beautiful book that is a great addition to any stitchers library.
So glad to see some one offering blue work. Thank you. Love the little snowmen so cute and easy.
Robin's new book is so sweet and filled with darling hand embroidery projects from pillows to wall hangings! She also features great stitching tutorials and easy to follow diagrams! Her "transferring the designs" tutorial is fantastic! This book is a keeper... especially for those of us who LOVE snowman! Looking forward to getting out my needle & thread!

Review from The Applique Society Newsletter, March/April 2016

Hurry and grab this adorable book filled with whimsical snowmen embroidery designs before those April showers wash them away! No matter if you are an experienced stitcher or just wanting to learn a few basic embroidery stitches this book is for you. Robin Kingsley presents simple to stitch, fun and whimsical hand-embroidery projects featuring a family of charismatic snowmen. They can be found cooking, sewing, quilting and frolicking in a winter wonderland created with pretty blue fabrics and simple embroidery stitches. Robin covers the basic embroidery supplies, there are just a few items you may not already have in your sewing arsenal. She uses Size 8 pearl cotton for her stitching. The basic stitches include: Backstitch, Cross- Stitch, Lazy Daisy, Feather Stitch, Fly Stitch, French Knot, Herringbone Stitch, Running Stitch, Satin Stitch and Straight Stitch. Once you master these stitches you won't have any problems adding embroidery to your applique work.

The projects in the book range from book marks and totes to needle work accessories, tea towels, mug rugs, pillows and quilts. The designs are all printed full size with an embroidery key identifying which stitch you should use. You will need to trace over the designs in the book then transfer them to your background fabric. All instructions to do this are included and are easy to follow. I can't think of a more fun way to work in a few embroidery projects featuring "blue work" instead of traditional "red work" using a pretty ice blue and white color scheme than the projects found in this book.
Review from Fabrications Quilting for You, November/December 2016

Simple and so much fun to stitch, these hand embroidery designs feature some of winter's favourite characters - Snowmen! To complete the wintry scene all projects are shown in blue and white, but of course you can choose your own colours. Sewing tips and basics accompany these delightfully simple and enticing projects for creating pillows, quilts, wall hangings, pincushions, mug rugs, book marks and bags. Each one has photographs, step-by-step instructions and an embroidery panel to trace including a stitch key. Design your own scenes by swapping snowmen characters, borrowing a hat from one, giving another a different message, or personalising them with the name of a loved one. The possibilities are endless. Enjoy!
