Review quote

Feb 14 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. Merseyside Embroiderer's Guild (megonline.co.uk)show more
