These 25 exquisite hand-embroidery projects are the perfect antidote to today's throwaway culture: they're meant to last and to remind us how generations before us lived--appreciating, preserving, and passing down their lovingly-stitched handiwork to families and friends. Anyone would treasure this lovely array of unique textiles, which include soft furnishings, home accessories, and gifts. They're arranged in five appealing thematic categories, all inspired by traditional designs: "Bugs and Botanicals," "Celebrations," "Country Garden," "Hearts," and "Seaside." Create a charming apple cushion, heart-adorned apron, lavender pillow, dragonfly picture, berry wreath throw, as well as tea cozies, table runners, napkins, and sachets.
The techniques--all beautifully and clearly explained--include chain and running stitches, satin stitch, French knot, and many others suitable for beginners.
