"This book is definitely a 'must have' for your crochet book library."
"I was especially taken with the zippered pencil case made with the Pretty Posy square. It would be a cute gift for the students in my life, but I want to make one for myself to hold all my crochet hooks. I also loved the market bag made with Popcorn and Lace squares crocheted with cotton crochet thread. Not only would it hold a lot, it would be the prettiest bag at the farmer's market. In addition, I appreciated the many different styles of bags, from boho chic, to sophisticated, to whimsical. There's definitely something for everyone here."
