Embroiderers everywhere won’t find the time—they’ll make the time to create these delicate, artistic crewel and surface embroideries. The 16 achievable projects are challenging but not overwhelming, decorative but also practical, with pleasing color schemes and clear step-by-step instructions. The inspirational floral designs require the minimum number of stitches to create the exciting and impressive stylized effects, conferring the embroiderer a freedom of expression. The skillful blending of wool, silk, and cotton guides the beginner and inspires the experienced stitcher to create this unique style of embroidery. The numerous photographs, illustrations, and row-by-row color keys make following the projects an effortless task and a joy to stitch.
