Do any of you own this book? If so, are the instructions hard to follow or is just it me? There are some really beautiful patterns in the book.

Thanks for your help!

Yes, I own it and agree. I especially had trouble with the beaded faces, which I thought were adorable. It seems that the instructions make some assumptions or are not very thorough. I haven't looked at it for awhile. Maybe now that I have more beading experience, I will be able to follow a bit better.

Yes, they are hard to follow.  In a lot of them, it seems like just general instructions are given.

Thanks everybody.  Thankfully some of the projects I can make by sight!

I think my favorites are "Puffy Mandala"  "Bubble Daisy Spacers" "Chinese Lantern Bead"

O.K. if I try to name all my favorites you'll never finish reading the post!

Thank you all SO much!
