Some thesaurus synonyms for primitive are archaic, undeveloped, and unevolved. However, for me, primitive is an old appearance - cozy and warm. It's a window into the past where life was experience in the most simplistic and truthful ways. The book shows the cozy, warmness of primitive revealed through the use of dark, saturated colors and the merging of wool - and it gifts us with a multitude of projects. The variety of designs include rug hooking, wool applique, embroidery, primitive-style quilting, and the lavish use of wool. A MUST-purchase for lovers of all things primitive!
