If you enjoy freestyle embroidery you will know that floral and garden-inspired pieces are a great favorite. Here is a book that combines two older titles (plus some new material) and contains patterns for four seasons of a garden, plus a special rose garden not featured in the earlier books.

And garlands too, samplers, a cottage garden and initials as well as ideas for gifts to make embroidered with these lovely floral images. I particularly liked the way that each flower was shown in a line drawing, together with instructions on working, threads used and the stitches needed. There are instructions too for the stitches, shown in right and left handed versions and although this is not ostensibly a book for the beginner embroiderer, it shows how few stitches are needed to accomplish so much. Beginners can learn the stitches and attempt some of the single flowers, while more experienced embroiderers can make up the lovely patterns or combine the flowers for their own pieces (what I have done). The more you look at this book, the more there seems to be in it.
