Haigh is an exhibiting embroiderer and author of two other needlework books, Crazy Patchwork and Japanese Inspirations. Her latest is a compilation of embroidery designs for 20 popular garden flowers worked in cross-stitch, crewel work, and hand and machine appliqu . A discussion of techniques, equipment, materials, and transferring and enlarging designs, as well as a stitch glossary, adds to the value of the book, as do the full-color, close-up photographs of each embroidery. This will appeal to the experienced embroiderer and is recommended for large public library textile collections. Copyright 2003 Reed Business Information.
