Title: Heirlooms of Tomorrow in Wool Embroidery
Why buy expensive embroidered heirlooms when its so simple to make them yourself?
All the projects are elaborately explained and illustrated. Joan gives full details so even the beginner embroiderer can undertake these projects. Included are notes on tracing and transferring designs, needles required and threads to 'draw' out the pattern.
Drawings and instructions cover every stitch used in the book, and there is a detailed flower guide with step by step notes on creating wonderful flowers in wool and other threads - roses, gum blossoms, lavender, flannel flowers, buds and leaves, as well as instructions on folding the ever popular silk ribbon roses.
