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
