In this series of traditional charted designs for needlework, Homes and Gardens presents a lively collection of designs. They have been gathered from the past to provide needlewomen with an indispensable source of inspiration ranging from small country cottages and town houses to grand stately homes and windmills. The gardens, filled with many varieties of trees and flowers, are alive with a very wide variety of birds, insects and animals. Family pets have not been forgotten and there are also a number of figures, giving the reader the opportunity to include members of their family. It is hoped that even beginners will be inspired to create their own highly personal embroideries, taking from these pages all they need to create their own individual designs. Basic instructions are given for the working of simple counted threadwork embroidery, for samplers and canvaswork. Each page of charts has full details of colors in which they were worked in a color key at the end of the book.
