Crewel & Surface Embroidery - Inspirational Floral Designs #1928
This book by Trish Burr presents a selection of stylized floral and flower bouquets for embroidery, designs inspired by the work of master decorative painters in the United States and Australia, and by the Zhostovo folk art style from Russia. Glorious roses, poppies, and daisies are combined with sprays of lavender, tiny blossoms, grasses, and colorful leaves, and many are set off by graceful loops and bows of ribbon. This talented artist's skillful blending of wools, silks, and cottons, many of these threads spacedyed, will guide the beginner and inspire the experienced stitcher to create this unique style of embroidery. Comprehensive thread listings, numerous step-by-step photographs, clear illustrations, and detailed row-by-row instructions make stitching these projects a joy. 144 pages, soft cover.
