Review quote

Trish Burr has developed an individual approach to surface embroidery. In this book she concentrates on flowers and creates them in spectacular, detailed style. From beautiful magnolias to the flamboyant Gloriosa, from coy violas to blazing poppies, Trish captures the essence of the flowers in her works of art. Silk shading is recognised as one of the more challenging areas of embroidery and this book provides a comprehensive look at techniques for all skill levels. The book includes and introduction to materials, professional tips and a stitch directory. Colour-blending and needle-painting are covered in depth making this a good reference work. There are four flower starter projects, three smaller flowers to work and fourteen full-size projects. In addition there are many leaves to work. This 128 page book is brimming with glorious flowers that you will want to stitch.-KarenPlatt.co.uk This book is a delight; the embroideries look real and are an inspiration. The flower projects have careful drawings showing how to produce such lifelike pieces. The text is clear and progression easy to follow. The silk shading is carefully explained. After the introduction there are chapters on materials and techniques and 2 pages of tips; the one to step back from the work and study it is very good, we all need to rest our eyes and think about the work in hand. The stitch glossary leads naturally into the tips on improving silk shading and needlepainting. The first 4 projects are simple flower designs where all you've absorbed can be used. Progressively more complex designs test the stitchers ability to put onto operation all the author has explained. Years of teaching are obvious in the progression of projects and gentle text. The colour printing and profusion of flowers is also inspiring.-Megonline.co.uk
