New Christmas Book: Stumpwork Embroidery

Fingers crossed that we don't have a power interruption!  We are getting lots of rain at the moment with high winds. I did get to the post box this morning and was surprised to finally get my 3rd Christmas book, Stumpwork Embroidery by Helen Richman. What a lovely book!

The book gives practical advice on working with threads as well as how to stretch and prepare fabrics. There are over 900 coloured photos to guide you through a wide range of decorative and raised stitches. Detailed instructions are included on combining stumpwork with a range of other techniques to create unique designs. Helen has provided ten projects to show how to use the stitches in designs, including stumpwork human figures. Don't you just love the figure on her book!
