Reviews

Karenplatt.co.uk: The inspirational floral designs in this embroidery book were themselves inspired by the work of master decorative painters in the USA and Australia and also by the Zhostovo folk art style of Russia. They are portrayed in crewel and surface embroidery. Roses, poppies, lavender and much more is found here. The interpretations by Trish Burr are talented, the colours beautifully blended. Each step-by-step project is accompanied by materials and colour guidance as well as clear instructions. The book also has a superb introduction and stitches. It is suitable for beginners to advanced embroiderers with a skill grading for each project. This 144-page book is superb for all lovers of floral rendition.
