Whitework with colour contains seventeen embroidery projects from the well-known embroiderer Tris Burr. This is embroidery with a difference, inspired by the freshness and elegance of the French style of whitework embroidery but with some colour added, contrasting against the stark white - hence the name of the book, to distinguish the style from pure whitework embroidery. The seventeen projects range from complete beginner to more advanced. No special skills are required, but a little practice will go a long way in helping you to master the technique. Trish uses a lot of raised and padded satin stitch in conjunction with stitches such as dot stitch and eyelets to create different textures. A self-taught embroiderer, Trish understands the need to present instructions in an easy-to-follow manner. Each project includes a list of the threads used, a detailed stitch diagram which shows which colours are used where and comprehansive step-by-step instructions accompanied by photographs.
