    Highly Recommend

    Wonderful, full of inspiration and beautiful works of embroidered art.
    Superb step by step instructions and easy to reproduce patterns. Anyone who has ever been interested in this kind of embroidery will be delighted with this book. I have been doing this kind of work for 40 years and I have found great pleasure and new inspiration in these pages. I highly recommend this book to everyone regardless of your skill level. Beginners will be drawn into this wonderful world of color and beauty as well as those of us who have been embroidering for years.
