Modern Folk Embroidery

Here's another new book added to my collection. The photos are beautiful and the designs can be found in folk art but with a modern twist. I've been following Nancy Nicholson's embroidery for awhile. I like her distinctive style, which 'draws on influences from Scandinavia and the Far East'. She uses a variety of stitches to create 30 interesting projects.

Each project is provided with embroidery suggestions which show the stitches used. There are pages of stitch combinations to explore in a variety of ways.
