My new embroidery book arrived today. Stumpwork Flowers by Sachiko Morimoto, is just delightful! According to the write-up, this book 'offers a modern perspective on the traditional floral motifs that have been a stumpwork mainstay for centuries. There are 19 beautiful designs to choose from, and 8 projects showing how to use the motifs to embellish pillows, napkins, pouches, books covers and more.'
The step-by-step instructions and diagrams are easy to follow so is ideal for all levels of embroiderers. I was attracted to the smaller scale designs and this book did not disappoint me. This is a great addition to any library (guild or personal).
If you really want a full review of this book, visit Mary Corbet's Needle n' Thread HERE. Her review sold me on this book. Thanks, Mary.
