"Hand Stitched Landscapes and Flowers" by Katrina Witten
Hand-stitched Landscapes and Flowers is a beautiful exploration of the potential of embroidery in depicting the natural world.
Katrina Witten, the designer with Rowandean Embroidery, uses no more than six simple stitches for each embroidery, plus delicate embellishments and an array of techniques and fabrics to portray pastoral scenes of fields, flowers and creatures with eye-catching three-dimensional effects.
There are ten detailed projects to try, depicting, among others, a hedgerow, a bluebell-emblazoned woodland, sunflowers, a poppy field and a summer scene of buddleia, butterflies and bees.
We are also selling packs of materials and the templates to complete the projects in the book. The project packs come without photos or instructions as these are all included in the book.
