Brazil is one of the few countries in the world that still values handmade gifts over store bought ones. The time that a person takes to complete a gift is not taken for granted since many men and women personally know the hard work that each piece requires. Everywhere you go in Brazil there are stores that sell magazines and books dedicated to arts and crafts, each one more unique than the other.
Today I want to talk about the Guia de Ouro - Ponto Cruz book that my mother brought over from Brazil a few months ago. I apologize in advance for the glare in each picture!
All in all, I have used and abused this book countless times and every time I open the book, I find a new design that I can't wait to sink my teeth in. If you're interested in some of the patterns that I featured above or if you want to see more, please leave a comment! I'll be more than happy to scan some pages for you guys. :D
Have a wonderful weekend, everyone!
