Format: Hardcover
I first came across this book in a UK Needlecraft magazine where it was described as "Real Embroidery. This is probably the closest thing to real embroidery that you will find, and I have read most books on the subject. The designs are stitched in long & short shading, padding and a small amount of stumpwork, all of which create a realistic 3D effect. The projects virtually come alive off the page and make you want to reach out and pick the plants. It is very clearly illustrated with simple instructions and you will quickly become addicted to Carol's type of embroidery, in fact it is virtually impossible to pass by a flower/plant without feeling the need to paint it with your needle. Highly recommended and a must for experienced embroiderers and beginners alike.
