Hardcover Book, Creative Ideas for Christmas 1987, Nancy Fritzpatrick, Reference Book, Illustrated, Crafts, Collectible

A wonderful hardcover entitled Creative Ideas for Christmas 1987 edited by Nancy Janice Frizpatrick. Color photographs.

Traditional Christmas decorations, gift ideas, and recipes are offered in this book geared toward the crafts hobbyist. The first section sets a warm tone, with visits to eight diverse American homes linked by their exuberance for Christmas. The ideas here are artistic, and the quality of the decorations in these homes are spectacular. German glass tree ornaments, handmade cloth dolls, a wreath made of red peppers contrasts with other designs also provided in the book, such as a doorknob wreath, cross-stitch angel and pom-pom Santa. Many projects require basic sewing skills, and a jigsaw is needed to make the attractive wooden toys. The volume is generously illustrated with large full-color pictures, clear, full-size patterns and detailed instructions. In a short holiday-recipe chapter the offerings are desserts, appetizers, party foods, breads, sweets and easy meals for hectic days. A great book full of Christmas cheer and fun projects.
