The word embroidery may conjure up a troop of listless young women waiting and hoping for their Mr Darcy to turn up, or your nana's posy-edged table-cloth, but Aneela Hoey brings embroidery right up to date in Little Stitches. Gone are the days when embroidery was all about alphabets and floral motifs. Your designs can be as modern as you like - from sewing machines and snow globes, to jugs of lemonade and treehouses, and Hoey's twelve whimsical, practical project tutorials show you how to put them to best use. In particular, embroidery is suited to making keepsakes and gifts, just as days gone by, but Hoey's pincushion features a taxi, and her needle case has the Empire State Building on the front. Included in this colourful and detailed guide to stitching, 21st Century-style, are more than 100 appealing illustrations printed on to transfer paper so that you can use and re-use them time and again. Embroidery, unlike some other crafts, can be taken along anywhere you go, and once you've mastered the basic stitches with Hoey's help, you'll want to embroider everything that doesn't move! www.mumtopia.blogspot.co.uk
