silk ribbon into beautiful flowers to enhance clothes, accessories,
quilts and corsages. Although the author's previous books
are better for the total tyro, you don't need to know a lot
to tackle these projects. At the front of the book are two
pages showing you how to do the few stitches you need, and
these include staged photographs for foolproof stitching.
The rest of the book is filled with twenty flowers, each one
consisting of a full page photograph (often giving an idea
for use) plus materials and written instructions. There are
often close-ups or helpful diagrams showing something tricky,
and a template if necessary. Choose from temperate garden
favorites such as a classic rose, fuchsias, red poppy, cornflower,
pansy, sunflower and Christmas poinsettia, to name a few.
At the back is a useful page of tips. This is a very user-friendly
book that is sure to get many more people converted to embroidering
with ribbon, and is a particularly impressive entry in the
Twenty To Make series.
