Stumpwork, Goldwork, and Surface Embroidery Beetle Collection #1956
In this wonderful book Jane shares her methods of using beautiful threads and fabric - and beetle winds - to create beautiful designs and projects in many forms of embroidery. Some are simplicity itself --- an elegant beetle shape embroidered in glittering metallic threads to reflect the iridescent colours of the wings cases set in a paperweight, for example. Others are delightful floral pictures in which a glittering stumpwork beetle plays a starring part. Lavishly illustrated in colour, this book with detailed step-by-step instructions accompanied by numerous explanatory diagrams is a fascinating addition to the working bookshelf of anyone interested n dimensional and textured embroidery.
