From Library Journal:

Original ideas for embroidery don't come along very often, because many stitchers prefer to work in traditional styles. Watts (Machine Embroidery: Ideas and Techniques, Batsford, 1992) is a contemporary embroidery artist with a talent for combining conventional fabrics and threads with such unconventional things as real flower petals, fabric paints, and rubber-stamp impressions. This is a book of ideas, not projects, full of color photographs of work by the author and others. Individual chapters cover use of real flowers, hand embroidery, applique and quilting, cross-stitch and canvas work, and machine embroidery. The photography is exceptionally good, with many detailed close-ups. A good selection for specialized craft collections.

From Booklist:

Don't dismiss this as just another embroidery book; Watts has dreamed up some of the most innovative, creative ideas ever to depict nature's blossoms. Instead of using traditional threads and fabrics, she finds objects and techniques external to embroidery. The first chapter, for instance, advocates using flowers; in fact, little stitching is necessary to finish hydrangea carrier bags, rose-petal fabric, and a pulped, rose-petal bead necklace. Each of the four subsequent chapters tackles specific techniques in different fashions; hand embroidery features rubber stamping and photocopying on fabric, and appliqueand quilting include both burned-edge appliqueand potato printing. Color photographs enhance the text. Barbara Jacobs
