The Secret Journals of Sherlock Holmes (A&B Crime) by June Thomson
5.0 out of 5 stars A worthy successor, 5 Sep 2013
I sometimes think June Thomson's pastiches are better than many of Doyle's original short Holmes tales. Of her contemporaries in the field I shall not speak.
Mastering the Art of Embroidery: Traditional Techn&hellip by Sophie Long
26 of 28 people found the following review helpful
Embroidery is chiefly taught by the old "sit by Nellie" technique, but if you had to buy only one book which shows you how, Sophie Long's new work has to be that one. Clearly written, sumptuously presented, Sophie demonstrates every technique with the use of the clearest diagrams as well as fine photographs of exemplary works. And to round the book out each technique has a short but vivid profile of one of the current practitioners of that technique. The book is well conceived and well executed - a must for embroiderers at every level.
