    Review quote
    This is a contemporary take on traditional stumpwork, that is very appealing. There are 19 beautiful floral designs. Eight projects show how to use the designs on household goods such as pillows, napkins, book covers and more. Part One shows the gallery of stumpwork flowers including clover, olive, nasturtium, viola and unusual choices such as pokeweed. Each flower is shown as single plates, which could actually be framed. Each plate has a reference to the page where you will find the instructions. In Part Two, you'll find the materials needed as well as tips and techniques to produce the flowers. Plus the instructions for each flower. These are given in black and white and I do not find them easy to follow. The close-ups are minute. There is a small photo of each flower, materials you need and then several very small drawings. The written instructions are easy to follow. The projects are treated in the same way. I do like this book and the designs, I just think the presentation could have been better. Clearer and larger diagrams and alphabetical order of the flowers would have been appreciated.-Yarnsandfabrics.co.uk/crafts This absolutely wonderful book features a bouquet of exquisite stumpwork wildflowers for you to recreate at home. It is an inspirational tome that will have your fingers itching to create the delicate sprigs in stitches. Each flower is explained step by step with the base stitches, order of working, diagrams and tracing diagrams. The sections on the three-dimensional aspects of stumpwork such as detached buttonhole, working wired petals and padding are presented with exemplary clarity. There are comprehensive stitch guides too plus who page photographs of each of the 19 flowers which show the detail of the stitches and technique. The flowers include clover, flax, viola, dill, camomile and wild strawberry.-New Stitches
