Blended Embroidery is such a beautiful book. Not only is it filled with inspiration to stitch vintage heirlooms using old lace, embroidery stitches and your own imagination it is also a really good read.

I loved the story of Etta Mae and the restoration of her Victorian home. I would truly want to visit if I ever got the chance.

Five projects are showcased, and they are absolutely stunning. The Sewing Butler is amazing and quite unlike anything I have ever seen before.   The photography of each piece has been brilliantly done. A lover of this art will be seriously impressed.  You can see the texture of each piece and imagine how tactile the fabrics combined with the raised embellishments really are. 

In order to build your vintage stash, it is recommended that we search flea markets, old family attics and even to deconstruct stained tablecloths. I have been really inspired and I have feel I have been given a chance to revisit a craft that I have long forgotten. 

The projects bring old fabrics, buttons and lace back to life and give them a modern touch. Using dyes, beads, crayons and paints, you can create a beautiful gift for someone special, and with the 15 stitches that have been demonstrated the final and finished result will be phenomenal.  

An amazing book that will inspire, teach and encourage you to try new ideas.
