Overview

The beautiful culmination of years of work and research on African life and its fascinating customs, this exquisite collection contains a wonderful abundance of scenic plant, bird, and wildlife scenes to embroider. Enchanting projects in bright and vivid color and accompanied by little folkloric stories capture Africa from sunrise to sunset. They progress from quick and easy designs to more challenging patterns for the advanced stitcher. An additional alphabet chart and motif library are included.

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
Burr, a lifelong resident of Zimbabwe, here pays tribute to the sun-drenched landscape of Africa with animal, plant, and wildlife scenes stitched in vivid colors. Included are 25 projects for cards, bookmarks, and pictures, along with 25 separate motifs that can be used in original designs. Vivid colors and well-delineated designs make the book stand out from many other cross-stitch compilations. It should be quite popular with cross stitchers who wish to delve into African symbolism and culture. Warmly recommended for large public libraries and subject collections.

These designs are like music to the eyes. I stumbled over this book and plan to search out Trish Burr's other books. There is joy in these designs--the use of brilliant color and shading is lovely. The projects would make great unique gifts yet the motifs can be adapted for other projects that suddenly spring to mind. I think a toddler would be enamored with a cross-stitch afghan sporting these colorful ostrich, chameleon, giraffe, cheetah and kudu. Thank you Trish Burr--it is obvious you love what you do.
