I am a novice and this book is one that has not only a wide variety of patterns but also ones for different levels of skill. Of course, for those really expert this would be an elementary reader. However, even they might find some patterns to do as quick gifts or sale items.

Wide variety of cross-stitch patterns / motifs. A lot of the nature-inspired patterns were recognizable as being a specific plant or flower. The author does tend to not use half cross-stitches and then tries to provide more definition with a back-stitched border (this bothered me because it seems less precise, but that's just me).
