One of the latest titles in this series presents over 100 designs from Acacia to Zinnia, including both popular and less well-known floral examples.  Several different interpretations are given for many of the plants, and for added interest, the page presentations include either an historical or horticultural note or a poetic quotation. Trace-off templates are included together with details of stitches and threads used.  This is a delightful book and a useful addition to any embroiderers’ library.

There is something extra special about adding a little touch to an item and making it personally yours. I love adding little touches to presents that make them unique and even more beautiful. Embroidery can add so much more to an item and flowers just make it so precious. This book takes you through so many amazing flowers to embroider with some beautiful designs.  There are the most clear and amazing pictures to help you with the different techniques. You can learn to embroider everything from an Alyssum to Zinnia. There are so many techniques used in this book. Everything from basic embroidery to using ribbons or fabric. This book is so jam packed full of different flowers that you can embroider. All of them are easily identifiable. The book goes through each flower in alphabetical order. There are some that have step by step instructions to help you to learn the different techniques. This however isn't on all of the flowers. Then at the back of the book
are all the patterns you will use to create each of the flowers.

Love embroidery? Love flowers? These floral designs will help you to create the flowers you love in embroidery. You'll find instructions for a plethora of flowers plus a little info on the flowers themselves. There are also quotations about flowers. Over 60 flowers are included. For each embroidery you'll find the requirements for thread and needle, and you can see the stitches used at a glance. There is also a clear order of work and a key for each one. The embroideries are by different people and you will find multiple embroideries for some species such as Pansy and the related Viola. I love the Callistemon, Buddleja, Myosotis, Fuchsia, Hydrangea, Iris, Pansy and Tulips.
