Understated and gorgeous, The Hand-Stitched Flower Garden is a book of delicate decorative stitching motifs inspired by nature, coupled with a collection of twenty projects to create by mixing and matching the designs. Organized by season, the book offers a gallery of embroidery patterns reflecting the beauty and variety of the garden - from roses, sunflowers, asters, and daisies, to little bumblebees, ladybugs, and dragonflies - all made using surface stitches, dimensional stitches, and bead embroidery. Chapter One presents "A Year in Stitches," which showcases the forty motifs in a visual catalog which lets the reader select desired designs. Spring includes classic symbols of the season, such as cherry blossoms, dogwood, daffodils, tulips, and pansies. Here, too, are garden creatures like butterflies and even ants. In Summer, come the roses, sunflowers, cosmos, and other bright blooms, as well as images evocative of hot, sunny places: seashells, starfish, and summer fruits and veggies like tomatoes and beans. Fall's bounty features colorful leaves along with acorns, chestnuts, chrysanthemums, pumpkins, and squash. And when Winter arrives, the poinsettias, camellias, and evergreens are vibrant against the snowy backdrop, which sparkles with light thanks to the addition of beads and sequins. In the second chapter, the author guides the reader through twenty projects based on the different motifs from the previous section. Whether it's a hanger cover, a cell phone case, placemats, or jewelry, each project can be created exactly as shown, or can easily be customized by substituting different designs from the gallery. Again organized by season, the projects include detailed directions, photographs of the steps, and actual-size templates where appropriate. Chapter Three provides all the essential information about tools, techniques, and stitches, as well as the templates.
