Book Description

20 Oct 2009
A Rainbow of Stitches is a how-to-stitch guide, a project idea book, and an encyclopedia of motifs, all in one go-to reference. Begin by choosing a motif from this extensive collection, which ranges from elegant alphabets to 1970s-inspired flowers and leaves, from sweet fairies to vintage-chic ladies in classic Dior dresses. The "Get Stitching" section gives you the basics you need to get started, along with an illustrated how-to of the simple stitches that are used to create all of the motifs. Each of the following sections, which are arranged by color–fresh greens, pretty pinks, timeless blues, rich reds, and elegant white and taupe–presents ideas for embroidering motifs in single colors, showing how much can be achieved with just one color of embroidery floss on a plain background. Includes more than eighty beautifully photographed, inspiring ideas for stitched embellishment, from wearables and personal accessories to a variety of decorative items for every room in your home.

5.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book but... 7 Feb 2011
By Apples
Format:Paperback
Really lovely book but beware that it contains many (if not all) designs from their first book "Made in France". Made in France has the red, white & blue sections, whereas this book also adds pink & green.
That said, this is a wonderful book - great mix of cross stitch & embroidery, classic & modern. All motifs are relatively small & therefore quick to complete. Can use to decorate items around the home, cards or pictures.
Highly recommend.

5.0 out of 5 stars Really lovely 7 April 2010
Format:Paperback
So much more than I was expecting!!! A truely lovely book with loads of ideas and inspiration for where to use stitching in a more modern context.

Literally hundreds of patterns and sound ideas, just to warn though, if you are expecting patterns etc for the projects there aren't any!! This book is motifs and inspiration only, by the bucket load!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars gorgeous! 28 April 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a beautiful book, lovely projects and fabulous photography. I am really looking forward to using some of the motifs.

BUT if you have already got Made In France by the same authors this book has all of the projects in that plus a few more- I bought both and was a little disappointed by the duplication, so if you're undecided between the two get this one!

Well arranged by colour and the photographs are also very nice!
