From the PublisherExcuse us if we boast just a little: the list of designers who have contributed to this fabulous book of contemporary embroidery projects reads like a roll call of Homespun alumni. We're talking: Lynette Anderson, Rosalie Quinlan, Leanne Beasley, Aneela Hoey, Yoko Saito, Robyn Kingsley, Tracy Souza, Natalie Lymer, Charlotte Lyons and Anne Sutton. All these wonderful stitchers have contributed projects to Homespun over the years - and now, they and other who work in a similar style have had new projects published in one book. So, if you're a fan of Homespun, it follows that you're virtually guaranteed to love this collection. Each project features simple but sweet hand embroidery that embellishes items such as a bag, quilt, cushion, wallhanging, sewing accessories, placemat or doll. All the embroidery designs are provided at full size, and the instructions for constructing the finished item are clear and well illustrated. What are you waiting for?
