What a gem!,

This review is from: Crewel Twists: Fresh Ideas for Jacobean Embroidery (Paperback)
I love this book. What a gem! I received it last week and have already completed a cut-down version of "Midnight Meander" featured on the front cover - using my own colour scheme. I was very pleased with what I achieved. The instructions clearly detail each stage, containing a useful stitch glossary including needle-lace techniques, and clear photos, that guide you step by step, to completion. I enjoyed it so much that I have since ordered the beads and threads for the Autumn Lace project and can't wait for them to arrive! I am so delighted to have found a book that combines several techniques, and that use well-known brands of stranded cotton. Hazel, you have achieved your goal . . . I am well and truly inspired!
