5.0 out of 5 stars Inspirational, 21 Jun 2010
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Stumpwork - Medieval Flora (Milner Craft) (Hardcover)
This follows in the style of other stumpwork books by Jane Nicholas, and is every bit as beautiful. Each panel is worked on a 12" square of fabric, although all five can be worked on a piece just 18" long x 12" high if preferred. The threads used are Au Ver a Soie stranded silk, but thankfully DMC threads are also given. Instructions are given, and there is a stitch glossary but, if you are new to stumpwork you are advised that there is not the space to provide detailed instructions on basic stumpwork techniques. There are also two illuminated panels, edged with a border which has gold thread over a rich violet purple bias cut silk ribbon, gold couching thread and gold seed beeds to add richness; there are creatures such as caterpillar, bee, butterflies, ladybird, dragonfly etc and any of the elements can be combined. For anyone who likes stumpwork , but wants more variety and a different style, try "Stumpwork Embroidery a Collection of Fruits Flowers and Insects for Contemporary Raised Embroidery also by Jane Nicholas, of the two, I think that is the better book.
