Bekki's Review: When I first spotted the Peaches & Cream Bedroom leaflet, it screamed out, "Thread crochet!" The projects appeared so very pretty and lacelike, they won me at that instant. I just had to do those projects! But imagine my surprise, and then my delight, when I discovered the projects were not of thread, but instead were of worsted weight yarn. Now, I do love thread crochet but I also love yarn, and this leaflet seemed to provide the best of both at once.
After calming down a bit, I thought that the projects would be excellent for those who like the delicate look of thread crochet, but are not (or not yet) comfortable with the smaller hooks and fibers that thread work requires. Of course, any crocheter of any ilk can find enjoyment in these projects. Other coordinating colors besides peach and cream also work up well so go ahead and experiment. Just because the leaflet has 'peaches & cream' in the title does not mean that one is obligated to only use those colors.
In general, the crochet instructions were clear and
One last detail that might prove problematical, particularly to those who are not very familiar with projects that require piecing together after crocheting the various parts, is that the assembly instructions are not as clear as they could be. People interpret words and phrases in many different ways. Though the assembly instructions are accurate, I would have loved some diagrams to go with the instructions to show exactly how the pieces were to fit together. I found myself feeling glad that I had had some earlier experience with similar crochet projects, since I could then better determine the intent of the assembly instructions.
I enjoyed the time I spent on these projects and believe that others will receive similar pleasure in crocheting them.
