More About the Author

Trish Burr is a self taught embroiderer. She was born and raised in Zimbabwe. In 2004 she moved to the Western Cape in South Africa with her husband and their three children.

She teaches and gives talks at workshops and guilds in South Africa, and contributes internationally to needlework magazines and other publications.

Her projects are mainly floral but she has recently expanded her work to include birds and portraits, devising means to include minute details in her subjects. Her emphasis on light and shadow brings her embroidery alive and her artistic use of colour further enhances the three dimensional effects in her work.

Trish is recognized for her unique style of long and short stitch embroidery. She has spent many years researching this technique and willingly shares this knowledge with fellow embroiderers. To quote in her own words:

"We need to keep hand embroidery alive, but if we hug our ideas to ourselves, they will become lost and worthless in the future. If I give you a gift, I no longer have it, you do. However, if I give you an idea then we both have it, and if you share this idea with others then we have multiplied it, expanded on it and watch it grow."

Format: Paperback
With clear step by step instructions for 17 achievable projects this is another wonderful book from Trish Burr. Projects start at beginner level and move on - first up is a poppy with buds, this is followed by various roses and then daisies with sprays. Intermediate projects are built on these with more poppies, roses, lavender and daisies, we finish off with golden flowers, white poppies with blue berries, dog roses with ribbon and daisies, dog roses with grasses and flowers. Projects are graded and each builds on skills learned before. You only need a minimum of stitches to achieve wonderful effects, and all you need to know is included, the book is in a format which makes it easy to follow and is suitable for embroiderers of all skill levels. Nice blend of different thread types too, like the mix of wool with silk and cotton. Enjoy using this one, interesting book.

I have done a lot of cross-stitch and found that it was no longer challenging. I have always admired embroidery but never in a million years thought that I would be able to do it. I bought this book on the other recommendations and it has been a god-send.

I started off with a 'Poppy' design by Anchor designed for beginners and I've impressed myself. The progress is slower than with cross-stitch but then the stitches are different, closer together and the work is meant to be made to a higher standard. I am now on to my second project and it is already much better.

Please don't look at the front of the book and think that you can't do it - you can, you just need confidence and this book!

A nice book bot it is American and a lot of the materials threads are not available locally so there are only a few patterns I can use so not really a lot of use to me

bel libro, piacevole alla lettura ma non adatto a principianti, preferisco di gran lunga il precedente ((A collection of flowers)
