DescriptionBased on her own experience with long and short stitch shading, gained through trial and error over the years, the author provides a greater awareness of how colour affects our embroidery, and what brings it to life. Each aspect is clearly illustrated by example and includes tools for selecting colours, choosing shades that enhance our embroidery, why some shades blend better than others, and the importance of contrast with light and shadow. There are projects to represent each colour group including stunning roses, camellias, fruit and the much sought-after bee-eater birds, but the highlights of the book for any stitcher have to be the chapters on colour combinations and complementary colours. These include more than 200 stitched examples with DMC thread keys, plus schemes to help choose colours for your own projects. Colour Confidence in Embroidery is the first of its kind on this subject and a valuable resource for any embroiderer. Although based on long and short stitch shading the principles could be applied to any surface or counted thread embroidery.

Well done Trish
Hi Trish. I can't believe there are no reviews for your beautiful book. I have just purchased another two for my girlfriends with whom I embroider. It is just so easy to follow and so inspirational. Your whole book is just a dream. Well done.... I am going to purchase another one shortly.. The threadwork is just so beautiful, and your explanation of the colour wheel is very understandable. I as disabled these days, and cannot manage the fibre art that I have done in the past as it is just beyond my fitness these days. I have resigned myself that embroidery is my love now... I attend a couple of groups and took your book along, and looking through the book I can see where some of my teachers inspiration comes from, I first saw your book on my male friends table. He does exquisite embroidery, and I thank him for discovering your book... I am 69, and love to learn more about colour. Fibre art is so indisciplined, but so wonderful, but it is all hanging on my walls now, and those walls of my family and friends. Once again Trish, well done, and it is a treasure to me. Kind regards from Joan Blizzard.. by joan blizzard
