Embroidery Companion
For fans of Alicia Paulson's charming handmade gifts and accessories and for both beginner and more advanced stitchers interested in adding beautiful, inventive embroidery details to their lives. In this follow-up to Stitched in Time, Alicia shares 30 of her dream embroidery projects. The gorgeous collection of projects includes a Berry Border Pillow, Harvest Apron, Apple Blossom Kerchief, Gingerbread Mobile and Monogrammed Quilt. Many of the projects are functional, a few are purely decorative, but all of them can be adapted as desired. Organized into three sections - decorative embroidery, counted cross-stitch and crewelwork - the projects are accompanied by stitch charts, templates, pattern pieces and instructions for finishing. Luscious photography and Alicia's hand-drawn illustrations make this a truly lovely book.

Really beautiful work, but I would agree with previous reviewer who says that this isn't for a beginner. If you have some experience then most of the projects should be in reach. Patterns have more little details than some other books, which I think makes them nicer. The book is mostly household items (napkins, tablecloths, curtains, pillowcases) but also some clothes (baby bib, skirt, apron, headbands).

If you don't have the patience for hand embroidering, don't borrow this book. If you do, the wide variety of designs will keep you enjoyably occupied for a long while.
