This review is from: The Hand-Stitched Home: Projects and Inspiration for Creating Embroidered Textiles for the Home (Hardcover)
I have to say I am ecstatic about this book I think it's the best handicraft book I've seen this year. Stylish, elegant makes to enhance your home and give it that handmade look. Know-how, inspiration and projects are all found in this fantastic book. Caroline Zoob talks about painting with a needle and her artistry shows through in her designs and the execution of them. In the introduction she talks about materials and the choice of fabric, so important in embroidery work. There is a paragraph on colour with Caroline's observation about green. The book is divided into five chapters. In Making Pictures, Caroline talks about how she is influenced by the countryside and the projects, which include bookends prove it. In Inspired by the Seaside, the nautical theme is beautifully taken care of. On the Edge adds decorative detail to shelf edging, towels, mirror frames, seat covers and more. I really love this section. At the Table will sort out your table linen and make sure your table looks smart. The Soft Stuff is a beautiful section full of cushions, throws and more. Whilst At the Window gives your windows, cupboards and doors a treat. Original work, beautifully presented with easy to follow instructions from excellent clear photos. Embroidery and applique are used in the book and techniques are given at the back of the book. Truly inspiring and highly recommended.
