Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Embroidery teacher Andrews specializes in floral designs in surface and raised embroidery, and the 26 designs in this collection were inspired by flowers from her garden. Some of the designs focus on a single flower or plant, while others present seasonal arrangements. Andrews uses a number of stitches that may be unfamiliar to less experienced embroiderers, and she includes full diagrams and directions for these specialty stitches. Traceable outlines, floss guides, and embroidery notes are provided for each design, and a full-color photograph of the finished work is also included. VERDICT Readers interested in traditional embroidery will appreciate the photorealistic floral designs and the inclusion of lesser-known stitches.
