I own lots of contemporary embroidery books (Beany and Littlejohn etc.) but I am really impressed with this book. Not only is it a delight visually but is also full of bite-sized, achieveable projects. The beautiful colours of the pieces and clear instructions really make you want to have a go. The book is undoubtedly for the contemporary embroiderer yet the stitches are the conventional ones, worked in more unusual ways. It has given me a wealth of ideas for my City & Guilds course, in terms of colour usage, presentation, stitches and finishes. Highly recommended.
