Before winter fades . . . By the fire; Chinese Rugs Designed for Needlepoint, by Maggie Lane. New York: Charles Scribner's Sons. 111 pp. $14.95.

A second helpful book by Maggie Lane gives designs for 10 small rugs, and the full color illustrations are of good enough quality to frame for your wall. All designs are fully graphed; they were adapted from antique Chinese rugs, bowls, and wall hangings.
