I saw Lorna Bateman talking about this book on You Tube and I couldnt wait for it to be released Its every bit as good as I hoped, a wealth of stitches, projects, techniques and a superb section on embroidery tools . All in full colour with fantastic diagrams and photographs Lorna said it took her the best part of three years to write and all that shows in the attention to detail in the fabulous book This is a must have Be for beginners and experienced sewists alike Can't wait to try the projects
This is a book which will give hours of pleasure even just paging through it. There are lots of ideas to make up your own flower garden project as well as many other projects you can do using the examples given of which there are so many. It is a fabulous book and worth having in your library. It also has included at the back patterns you can use to trace for the various projects suggested in the book so all the measuring is done for you.. This is a book that will show you that anyone can make these beautiful pieces with the help of this lovely book.
Beautiful book, with lovely embroidery designs, reminds me of my grandmothers garden. Like the A-Z of flower descriptions, very helpful. The projects are beautiful, good quality paper patterns at the back of the book. I started with the small case because it is perfect to practice the individual flowers. Very pleased, highly recommend.
Excellent book from an excellent embroiderer. Patterns included for some projects as well as full instructions throughout the book on materials to use, threads, stitches, needles etc. One of the best a great book throughout even if you just admire the photos!
