This colorful book has been designed especially for the budding embroiderer who wishes to explore the creative possibilities of hand embroidery. With the beginner in mind, the exquisite embroideries illustrated show how the countryside can be brought to life using a surprisingly small number of basic stitches. Step-by-step instructions for a range of simple stitches, together with advice on learning to look at the countryside, will help you to embroider your first charming meadow landscape. There are suggestions for developing this design to encourage you to create more original scenes. Finally, a collection of elegant embroideries offers you a wealth of ideas for more experimental approaches, such as making and incorporating miniature flowers, fences and garden tools, using applique and painting techniques and embroidering on the outer mount.
