I received this book over the week end and I am so delighted to have it. It makes all those colors of dmc floss make sense. It sets out groups of DMC floss in groups of colors. I have been reading for two days and just can't put it down. For anyone who is unsure about color when it comes embroidery this really brings it all together.I hope this info is good for someone out there in the stitching world Hugs To all Elaine
