The book gives instructions for making one picture - the one on the front cover - if this appeals to you, and you like silk ribbon work and/or stumpwork then this book is excellent. The first quarter relates to types of thread used, which type of needle to use for what, how to transfer the designs - various methods are given and it all relates to this book (not every other needlework book). The stitch glossary is the best I've seen to date - colourful clear and comprehensive. Stumpwork techniques are clear even for a beginner and pages 40 to 123 have the flower panels in full colour with instructions for each one - including which stitches and needles to use. If you can't source the embroidery items they can be bought direct from Di van Niekerk's web site - the stockists in the book are all in South Africa. If you want a book giving more stumpwork than ribbon - try Stumpwork Embroidery by Jane Nicholas the book is amazing.

If you like embroidery of anykind this is a book for you.

It is crammed full of lovely illustrations and fantastic ideas by a person who obviously has 'the touch' as well as the skill which is often not apparent in may other publications! The instructions are straight forward and detailed.

It is a great source of inspiration. The projects are perfect on their own or can be easily adapted into larger or just different designs. It is just one of those books which is a pleasure to own and one which you will keep going back to for many diffent reasons.

If you only want to buy one book this is the one for you but it is also a great addition to your collection.

Beautiful book, great illustrations. This is very clear to follow and is a wonderful resource for anybody who likes ribbon embroidery and stumpwork. If you don't want to do any of it, it is also a wonderful book to have just lying around.
